Daily Prompts- Translation please!

It is a difficult task to understand the younger generation these days. I sometimes feel as if we need a translator for communicating with them. The new slangs, terms and acronyms are totally confusing for me, and I think people of my generation.

Turns and twists on the modern day terminology are bamboozling and can mean something entirely different than what we think. Alternating between amusement and frustration I try to get what my grand son and his friends mean when they use words like “savage” “goat” “snatched” “100“!!! And don’t get me started on the acronyms! I have to google what these letters stand for. Apparently being a “savage” is a good thing and so is a “goat“- Greatest of all times! I must be spending my life under a stone or something to be so out of touch with the language of today!

The map for language used these days is obscure to me and I have lost the ability to communicate with the younger people.

I am afraid to use old complimentary phrases, however tasteful they maybe because they may mean the total opposite of what I think. One day being a Scrooge may mean something good!

  1. 😂😂 I hear you! Despite of being a millennial myself, I don’t get the current ‘lingo’ most of the times; more often than not, I end up googling things especially the acronyms (trends of which changes so fast).
    great post, Sadje 👍

  2. Great post, Sadje! We used to have our lingo when we were young. Lingo will always exist and change from generation to generation. In fact, the sixties were famous for slang. Our parents thought we were speaking a different language.

  3. I hear you Sadje, complete sentences are not in their vocabulary. And if they manage to complete anything resembling one, you can’t hear them… because their mumbling! 🤔🤦🏽‍♂️😔
