The Generational Meme Redux Of 'My Parents In Their 30s'

In case the internet's long term anti-boomer crusade hasn't made it clear enough, younger generations haven't had it so great for a while. Between rising living costs, stagnant wages and a society hellbent on making things harder for the little guy, it can be easy to look at coming of age a few decades earlier with rose-tinted glasses.

This is an attitude that has been expressed repeatedly in memes, most notably last year when the 'My Parents At Age 29' format humorously compared the life paths of millennials and their parents with a Wojak comic. In fact, it was so popular that it has recently experienced a remix in the form of the 'My Parents In Their 30s' meme.

While the two reflect on similar themes, there are some key changes. Where the older meme focused more on the varying maturity levels between generations, the revamp underlines the large material differences. This time around, 'My Parents In My 30s' is there to remind you that no, you are not getting on the property ladder any time soon. The original setup may not be that believable (how many people have parents that own a second home?), but the anxiety behind it still stands. Nothing says relatability like going into debt with your grocery shop.

TikTok Landlord Gets Called Out For False Advertising

Hustle culture is the absolute worst. It has a cringeworthy attitude, glamorizes dangerous overwork and demonizes anyone who might want to enjoy their life without striving to become a millionaire by the age of 30. 

Most depressing of all, its zenith is the often shady world of property investment. The advent of TikTok has ensured that there's an influencer for pretty much everything these days, and landlords have grasped the opportunity with enthusiasm. The platform is home to countless real estate aficionados, showing off their wealth and providing frequently dubious advice on how others can achieve the same. 

It has drawn wider attention recently due to one of the more prominent TikTok landlords. User @tatlondono made a video claiming that her ownership of a Porsche and a Range Rover was thanks to the ownership of three apartments, whose exterior featured in the TikTok.

However, once the video made its way to Twitter it was revealed that all was not what it seemed and the building she had filmed in front of was not even owned by her. In a sector where mismanagement and exploitation are rife, it's more than a little suspicious to be using blatant falsehoods. Unfortunately, it's also not likely to stop the #aspirational content train.
