Oh, these darn kids today…they’ll never know some of the struggles or the joys we experienced back in the day, now will they?
I’m not talking about the old “I walked uphill both ways to school in the snow every day.” I’m referring to more recent stuff, like 1980s and 90s technology and culture and other stuff like that.
The Twitter-verse has caught on to this “today’s kids will never know” trend, and the tweets are quite entertaining.
Let’s take a look.

9. You’ve changed…
kids today will never know how hard it was to keep up with friends in the ‘90s. you’d lose someone in the department store and they’d return the next day a wizened old man, having spent three hundred years in the thrall of the faerie queene.
