Local Millennial Braiden Stone was stunned he didn’t get a job for a prominent tech firm in the area after coolly replying, “OK Boomer,” to every interview question.
“I’m literally offended,” Stone said. “I have been told by my mother that I am the best at everything I do. I have probably 700 participation trophies at home in my closet. I just don’t understand how they could pass me up for this position.”
The interviewer, Michael Sands is a 40-something IT manager and was confused by the interview technique.
“I don’t really get what he was trying to do in the interview. Typically, interviews are a bit awkward exchanges of cliched industry jargon and white lies. Braiden just kept calling me Boomer and didn’t answer any of my questions.
“I asked him what were his strengths and he said, ‘OK Boomer’. I asked him what were some areas he could grow and he just squinted his eyes and repeated, ‘OK Boomer.'”
Stone said that he will probably just start a meme company and hope to get paid for his snarky remarks. He’s currently living in his parents’ basement, with no clear plan to pay off his student loan debt.
