According To Gen Z Brits, Ordering A Cappuccino Means You're 'Officially Old'

Looks like our days of ordering a cappuccino are well and truly behind us. Apparently, Gen Z think it's the ultimate sign of ageing!

According to a new study, there's actually a definitive list of traits that suggest you are 'ancient'. But the number one sign? Ordering a cappuccino.

Out of a poll of 2,000 people, 52 per cent of Gen Z Brits believe "only an old person" would order the frothy coffee.

Meanwhile, others signs of ageing include turning the music down while you park the car, using hashtags incorrectly and insisting on wearing comfortable shoes.

Another marker that you're past your peak? Being unable to recognise Love Island contestants and asking for 'milk and two sugars' in your tea... What's wrong with that?!

Meanwhile, owning a gas barbecue and listening to Radio 2 are also indicative that you're no longer 'young'. In fact, the survey - by insights agency Perspectus Global - revealed 45 is officially the age when you are 'over the hill' and over 42s should no longer go clubbing, apparently.

Ellie Glason from Perspectus Global said: "Our latest research suggests that the cappuccino could soon be a thing of the past, along with Facebook, M&S underwear and asking for milk and two sugars in your tea.

"The survey also suggests Gen Z's reckon anyone over the age of 42 should not go clubbing. But with night life set to reopen this summer, we say you are never too old to hit the dance floor".
