“Oh, So Sorry Boomer”: Karen Gets Busted After Deleting All Files After Getting Fired

Baby boomers, or those born between 1946 and 1964, lack computer literacy compared to younger generations. This can impact their daily lives, particularly in the workplace where technology is increasingly integrated into job functions.

However, the lady Reddit user PM_Georgia_Okeefe had worked with was not only unaware of her, let’s call them ‘occupational shortcomings’, but also acted like a jerk and created a hostile environment. This became very apparent when one of her projects was transferred to the Redditor. Instead of cooperating, she acted out of spite and tried to sabotage their work as much as she could.

But in the end, it was PM_Georgia_Okeefe who had the last laugh — the lady was laid off, and they even helped her dig her own grave and lose her severance pay in the process. Continue scrolling to read the Redditor’s post which appeared in the community ‘Petty Revenge‘ and describes how it all went down.

PM_Georgia_Okeefe’s former colleague and many other Baby Boomers want to work. With more people getting older than ever before, their life expectancies are also extending dramatically — with medical advancements, the number of American men projected to live into their 90s has doubled since 1965. So we can definitely understand the lady’s frustration when she’s noticing that her younger colleagues are more in tune with the current job market and what it demands.

And it’s not that Baby Boomers don’t have anything else to do. They feel the pressure. A recent survey from the Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies estimates that their median retirement savings totals $202,000. That might sound like a lot of cash at first, but the number produces just $8,080 a year, or $673 a month for those who do reach 90.

Add in mass financial illiteracy and the problems compound. On average, 37% of Boomers believe they will need long-term care in retirement, while in reality, it might be closer to 70%. There’s a big misunderstanding of healthcare costs. One that’s rising too.

According to Gallup, 41% of Americans expect to work beyond 65, up from 13.5% in 1995. (Keep in mind that these numbers were collected just before COVID-19 unemployment took a hit at savings.) Desperate for income for survival, Baby Boomers are now a growing segment of the U.S. workforce, and for them to keep up, digital literacy in the workplace is required.

More than half of employees over 50 have been laid off in what’s being referred to as an “involuntary or forced retirement,” while few organizations are actually helping older employees transition from full-time to part-time. And for those fortunate enough to be employed, 3 out of 5 older workers experience ageism on the job. For these and other reasons, the number of age-based discrimination cases filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission by people over 65 have doubled between 1990 and 2017.

Of course, these problems don’t give them the right to take their frustration out on others. But we will get old one day too. And something tells me we won’t like to fight for survival either.

As the story went viral, some people were unhappy that its author placed so much emphasis on the lady’s age

But most were glad that justice was served

Others even shared similar experiences of their own
