  1. I concur. I’m a Gen Xer approaching 50 years old. Since I lived in a rural area and bought a cheap home, I bought my first house at the age of 26. I also drive a budget car and aim to keep my costs/expenses as low as possible. It’s more difficult with teenagers, but I manage.

  2. In 1990, my mother paid $120,000 for her home. It was recently appraised for $600,000. My wife and I make less than $100,000 a year and must either move away from both of our families or rent until we die. It’s ridiculously cool.

  3. At the age of 38, my parents already had two children who were grown and out of the home.

    I’m 38 years old and the mother of four children under the age of 13. I’m so far behind that I won’t be able to catch up.

  4. That’s right. My parents were paying a $500-per-month mortgage, which was paid off at the start of this year, and 2007 me felt it was extortion.

    Let’s fast forward to today: I’m paying $600 a month for a room and am on the low end of the housing market. I can’t imagine being capable of caring for another human.

  5. Exactly the same.

    There’s even a PS5. And then there’s my gaming machine.

    Hmm, I’m not doing anything to redeem myself. Worse still, I come from a military background. I destroyed 800 years of military history by going to university instead.

  6. At the age of 32, my parents were as follows:

    – Married – Toddler – Two cars – Two dead-end jobs – A run-down apartment

    At the age of 32, my SO and I:

    – About to marry – No children – Two cars – Two dead-end jobs – A run-down townhouse

    With the exception of one toddler, we’re pretty much the same.

  8. I’m 37, and my wife and I have a mortgage, no children, and just one car. We only had enough for a down payment because I inherited a small portion of my mother’s estate when she died. We’ll be paying off the mortgage until we’re 70 years old. It would be simpler if I wasn’t disabled and we had two salaries, but that’s not the case. At the time I was born, my parents had a home, three children, and two cars.

  9. You have the support of any other millennial who has been duped in this way. Promises were made, but they were never kept. We’ve been systematically fucked over and over as a generation.

  10. My whole collection of belongings is worth less than $5000. And that’s exaggerating.

    I’ve had to restart twice as well. Then I first went away and returned home to find my parents and siblings had sold/stolen all of my belongings despite the fact that I was only going away for 5 fucking months, and when I got married and my wife got rid of the majority of my things.

  11. Born and raised in the Frankfurt region, Germany. If I want to rent a house for less than $300,000, I’ll either have to drive for over an hour to get to work or pay an additional $100,000 to actually live in it.

  12. In the 1990s, my mother paid $120,000 for her home. It was recently appraised for $600,000. My wife and I make less than $100,000 a year and must either move away from both of our families or rent until we die. It’s ridiculously cool.

  13. Ask every elderly person. Purchasing a home has never been easy. I used to believe that previous generations had it all figured out, but after giving it some thought and crunching the numbers, I’ve changed my mind. If you wanted to have a family and a home after WWII, you almost definitely had to work incredibly hard and make sacrifices in order to do so.

  14. Buying a home today is much more difficult than it was 30 years ago. And, if at all possible, people should stop purchasing a vehicle, since these are terrible for carbon emissions and microplastic waste.

  15. Here’s Boomer. Yes, I am aware. By the time I was 25, I had all of those things. It’s remarkable how much you can do with a high school diploma and a decent salary. I was also a member of a labor union. It’s a nice thing to have. I pity younger people because the system has failed them.

  16. My parents were caught up in the shady refinance craze in the 2000s and ended up owing about $800,000 on a house that was only worth $200,000.

  17. Is there someone who knows what to do? What I see are people who are in agreement. Is it true that we’re all doomed!?

    Bill Gates, if you’re single, please support us!

  18. This isn’t so much a consoom mentality as it is a helpless mentality, in my opinion.

    The person who drew this would have preferred to have their own home and car, but those things are difficult to come by these days.

  19. Many people expected to live the left panel lifestyle *right out of fucking high school* 40 years ago.

    By the time you’re 40, you could have *saved* a significant amount of money and be considering early retirement.

  20. I’m glad I’m not alone…

    Really, what I really wish for is an economy that works for everyone, as well as social safety nets such as universal healthcare.

    It’s not enough that I’d be pleased; I’d also be relieved… And I’ve discovered that relaxation is invaluable.

  21. It’s amusing, to say the least. But, could you please justify why the phone costs $1200? And I’ve read elsewhere that people at that price point even use tablets.

  22. Those were different days, to be sure. There were plenty of good-paying jobs available, as well as reasonably priced housing. What about the kids? Fuck that shambles. These days, the world is really different. We need less, not more, consumerism.

  23. Take a look at your mobile, which has a 1200 mAh battery!

    Since I have children, my phone was purchased secondhand for £200.

  24. In Germany, it’s the same. Two engineering salaries are meaningless. The entire country was built with the 60-70-year-old generation in mind.
    Everyone else is just along for the ride and, of course, is responsible for the whole bill.

  25. Parents’ home cost $80,000, their car $5,000, and their college tuition was $1,000. Today, their net worth is $1 million.

    Me Today, a house costs $800,000, a car costs $20,000, and college costs $60,000. I have a net worth of $-980,000, and by the time I reach the age of my parents, I would have paid off about half of my debt.

  26. The housing crisis is a true blight. Apart from that, I believe that living standards, opportunities, and lifestyle in this country have significantly improved since my parents’ generation. Housing is a simple, inevitable necessity, and that’s the part that’s so messed up.

  27. Your parents grew up in a time when a person’s income was more closely linked to the value of the products they bought. Costs have skyrocketed, but wages have remained unchanged.

  28. Yes, but in our twenties, we now have the luxury of ‘finding’ ourselves. My perspective on life is that, indeed, they had some advantages that we do not, but vice versa. It’s just a part of life!
