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!
