Reddit users are sharing the “boomer opinions” they actually agree with on a thread that’s received more than 23,000 comments.
Since the question was posted on AskReddit on Friday (4 November), the thread has garnered significant traction.
The most common responses include a disdain for QR code restaurant menus, the belief that smartphones should remain out of young children’s lives, and a fondness for physical media such as video games and movies.
One user wrote: “Kids shouldn’t touch any electronic devices until a certain age. I work in tech but if I ever have kids I will still enforce this rule. It makes me sad to see one-year-old babies glued to phones.”
Multiple people expressed their frustration over restaurants that offered QR code menus, with one Redditor noting: “Number one answer in this sub is ‘QR codes for menus’ – restaurants take note!”
