People are sharing their childhood struggles kids today just wouldn't understand

Kids these days.

EARLIER TODAY MUSIC publicist Eric Alper tweeted a question we all took a moment to ponder.

In no time, people were flooding Twitter with things they could say to confuse young people, and it stings to think they’ll never know the struggle.

@SkyChrisCreegan If it’s not working, take it out and blow on it

@PercyKaren making a mixed tape by recording the radio!


@CineramaGav Being disappointed that the free movie tie-in toy in the cereal box is one you have already.

@PMc276 we actually met other people by arrangement in town.

@galeforcerob puttin eircom callcards in the freezer to restore em (a myth that didn’t actually work).

@Grking you had to memorize EVERY SINGLE phone number to your friends’ homes.

@SkyChrisCreegan Don’t worry, I’ve got plenty of battery left on my phone, I charged it last Tuesday.

Those truly were the days.
