Someone Asked Millennials To Tweet Old People Habits They’ve Developed. The Thread Is Relatable AF!
Confession time! I have, for the longest time, judged my mom’s choices, thoughts, and the way she does things. But that changed completely when I was living by myself and realized that I have strangely transformed into her. Weird, right? Well, I have not completely changed into her, but there are so many tendencies of her’s that I’ve developed that honestly make me laugh when I recognize myself doing, behaving, and or thinking that way. And thanks to the Twitter handle @DontAskMeBitch2’s (what now? lol) hilarious but relatable Twitter thread, I know that I’m not the only one developing old people habits in my 20s!
Recently, Twitter user @DontAskMeBitch2 asked people over the age of 25 to share some of the stereotypical auntie/uncle/old people habits that they’ve started developing now that they are moving closer to their parent’s age. The replies are hilarious and it’s comforting to know that you’re not alone in this!
@DontAskMeBitch2 tweeted, “Hey 25+ Twitter. What ‘auntie/uncle tendencies’ do you have now that you’re old?” And the replies have gone viral and people from all over the world are joining in on it.

One of the most relatable old people habits that I found was the one where someone said that one needs to inform them 2-3 business days in advance for her to hang out with them or else she’s not coming. And let’s all agree, we all have been there.
If you don’t tell me 2 to 3 business days ahead of time that you want to hang out I’m not coming. I don’t do day of hanging out

One of the Twitter handles also replied saying that they had a strange desire to own a rocking chair. And all I can say is, been there, done that. Another handle’s reply was something every Indian millennial would relate to because we have seen our auntie/uncle/old people/parents doing it all the time – “Saving boxes that I don’t need and won’t use ever.”
Having a strange desire to own a rocking chair. Started at 22. It hit me early.

Reading the Twitter replies to @DontAskMeBitch2’s tweet about the stereotypical old people habits that people over the age of 25 have developed confirms my belief that we do end up becoming our parents when we grow old. Whether we like it or not. And as scary as that thought may seem, let’s take comfort in the fact that we are not alone in this.
