Life is so much simpler when you're a kid; you don't have to worry about bills, your body isn't failing on you in every possible way, and your food is always made for you by your parents. It's pretty great.
Thing is though, because we had it so easy, the smallest things would just absolutely ruin our day and turn us into crying messes. Here's just a few things that, in retrospect, probably weren't worth getting upset over.
Waiting for your sibling to die so you could have the freaking controller
When you walked into the school gym and saw the ropes hanging from the ceiling

Forgetting your money on Book Fair day
When the batteries died just as you were about to beat your high score
And finally, these mofos only having two possible temperatures; frozen, and molten lava

The 90s not only offered us great entertainment and fashion style, but it also gave us some amazing snacks. Was there anything more stressful as a kid than asking your mom for a certain treat at the grocery store? You had to wait till she was in a decent mood and it had to be casual. Not too pushy, or else she'll definitely say no. But also not so casual that she thinks you don't really want it. It was a true science.
