If you’re a 90s kid like myself then you will no doubt have put up with these 20 struggles we all had to endure throughout the 1990’s.
Can you remember phones with cords? How about visiting a video store or seriously slow internet?
Having to ring your friends, girlfriends or boyfriends house and speak to their parents to ask if you were in
Having to literally wait minutes to connect to the internet and forever to download anything
Having to go out and rent a video from the video store
No texting which meant having to pass notes in class
If you missed an episode of your favourite TV show that was it
Unless you bothered to set a timer on the VCR to record it
Taking photos and then having to take your film to be developed at a photo shop or chemist before you could see the photos
Having to set an actual alarm clock
Not having Google to answer questions
Having to carry around your music on a ‘Discman’ or worse a ‘Walkman’ and be limited to one CD/tape at a time
Manual wind-down windows in a car
Phones with cords
Spending all day recording your fave tracks from the radio only for this to happen
If you were lucky enough to have a mobile phone in the late 90s then this was a daily struggle
Chunky Game cartridges (although they did load straight away!)
Shit Graphics Video Games
You had to listen and figure out the lyrics to your favourite songs
Limited TV – Hardly any channels and no downloads, streaming or catchup TV
If you arranged to meet somebody you would have to go or they would never know you’d cancelled or was running late!
Using a Road Atlas
Having to use a proper TV guide to see what was on the TV as there was no EPG
