How to Impress Cool Rock Boomers at Work

Step 1: Ask Cool Rock Boomer if they are listening to “metal”. Unbeknownst to you, your lackadaisical Southern accent has made the ‘t’ in “metal” too soft.

Step 2: Cool Rock Boomer was actually, in that very moment, listening to Pink Floyd.

Step 3: Cool Rock Boomer emails you 6 days later:
“BTW, when you asked me if I was listening to Meddle last week, I thought you were asking if I was listening to Metal (like Heavy Metal). I would never have guessed that someone your age would know and love that old Pink Floyd!”

Step 4: Sit back and look like you meant to do it.
