20 Pictures Of Things People Born After The Year 2000 Will Never Understand

Growing up in the ’90s was interesting. Technology at this point was booming, but if you look back at this time period now, it’s comical how we used to live. They were first-world problems!

Here are a ton of things kids born after the year 2000 just won’t understand.

Leave a COMMENT on Facebook letting us know which of these you loved the most.

1. A scratched CD was probably the worst thing that could’ve happened to you.
Didn’t matter how many times you blew on it and rubbed it, your songs would still skip.

But you still put it in anyway, hoping that your favorite song didn’t skip.

2. If you had one of these, then you are pretty amazing.

This just proves that you are on top of your music, and you’re always downloading the hottest and newest songs.I used to have mad respect for people with the biggest book of CDs.

3. VHS tapes were awesome, but they were so annoying to use.

Seriously, it was such a hassle. Watching a movie used to be a lot of hard work. Trying to wind that VHS tape/film back after it unraveled in the player was definitely a workout. 

4. OH NO! This picture is reminding me of so many awful memories.

The flashbacks are just too much for me to handle at the moment. I wonder how much time I wasted on rewinding cassette tapes.The horror, the horror.

5. When you get a cellphone plan now, it usually includes everything. Like unlimited texting, unlimited minutes, and some data!

But back in the day, it was a whole other story. Making a call required some strategic planning. 

Thankfully, not many people have to deal with it. Young kids will never know the struggle!

And honestly, that’s a struggle they don’t need to go through. It’s ridiculous. Let’s never go back to those days. PLEASE! 

6. Butterfly Barrettes

These barrettes totally gave you butterflies as a teen — but now? Not so much. While still super nostalgic, I think it is safe to assume that we all think these are best left in the past.

7. I do, I do!

My pockets were bulging all the time. You needed the iPod; it’s not like your phone could hold any songs. Could probably hold five songs, maximum.

8. Those were the good old days!

Now my phone loses its charge after five minutes. It’s so annoying.I feel like I’m constantly charging my iPhone all the time. I don’t want a Nokia phone, but I wish my phone had a Nokia battery life. 

9. If your Nintendo or Playstation game didn’t work, you knew what to do!

All you had to do was blow, blow away. Now you were ready to have some fun!I literally did this all the time. It just became a habit, even when I didn’t need to. 

10. I have to say, one great thing about being alive today is that my pockets aren’t continually stuffed with things.

Because I don’t think a CD player could fit into my jeans pockets. 

11. These kids will never get a chance to slide the metal thing.

And I feel so bad, because it was pretty fun to play with. RIP to floppy disks. They were harder to lose than USBs. 

12. This whole controversy…

But if you were born before 2000, you already know that downloading music was not easy at all. The amount of viruses my family computer got was kind of ridiculous. 

13. This fossil is literally the epitome of the ’90s.

I wonder why Rachel and Chandler were the friends chosen to represent Microsoft Windows 95. I mean, sure, Chandler was the “statistical analysis and data reconfiguration” guy, but Rachel???

14. RIP to this type of romance.

Does anybody even do this anymore? So unfortunate! John Cusack set a very high standard, and I guess it’s hard to measure up to this nowadays. 

15. Here it goes — when I was a kid, Nickelodeon was where it was at!

They were basically responsible for making brightly colored goo popular, but now their company looks like some generic motel or somethin’.

16. That moment when you set up your VCR record and your show played back this madness.

Um, what? THIS IS NOT THE SHOW I RECORDED.This would be such a devastating moment. Hope you can catch a rerun!

17. If you get this reference, you probably had a pretty great childhood.

Let’s just bask in this peaceful memory before we start waving our canes up in the air about how the times have changed.

18. Oh, the memories this brings back!

This was my favorite MTV era. They actually played music like all the time! Shocking, I know. Kind of wish we could go back to this. 

19. We just called these “TV’s” but now they’re known as “tube TV’s,” I think.

Point is, there were a few glorious days in the school year when we saw this bad boy busted out!

20. Cereal used to be so much more fun, man.

Whatever your jam was, we all know the most important part was the toy inside! Do they still have toys in cereal? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
