Growing up in the 90s presented an interesting set of challenges. We were the first kids to learn about the internet, we were able to survive without DVRs, and we didn’t have cellphones.
We really had a lot of things going on! There were some problems and struggles that are fairly universal that we all went through, and it’s time to air it all out. Let’s see if you ever experienced these dreaded problems from the 90s.
When you were on the internet but then your parents needed the phone
When your tape would get tangled but you didn’t have a pencil handy
When your fancy new skip-free CD player lied
Having to answer the phone to know who it was because caller ID wasn’t around
When you couldn’t find a blank tape to record that show you really wanted to see
When you had to use Encarta to write a report because Google didn’t exist yet
When your phone cord got tangled beyond repair
There are a lot more struggles you went through as a kid, click on the next page to see some of the worst ones possible!
When you rent a movie and they didn’t follow the rule of Be Kind, Rewind
When the movie you wanted to rent wasn’t at Blockbuster
When you looked away for a second and the TV guide channel flipped by the one you cared about
Listening to the sound of the internet connection every time you wanted to go online…It was painful
Running out of film in your camera
Getting your pictures developed and realizing your finger is in ALL of them
Getting caught passing notes in class
Not being able to pick the perfect word art font
Or even just Clippy in general…
We survived so much if you think about it…
