Things Kids Today Will Never Understand
I sound like an old man writing this but because the advance of new technology is moving so fast our kids are literally growing up in a different world than we did. Here’s a rundown of some things older people know all about that our kids just won’t understand:
Thanks to our friends at Cracked.com,
- Phrases We Use Every Day- In the world of computers, older people know what “saving to a disk” means. Many kids have never seen a floppy disk. Also, what does the word “rewind” mean to kids?
- Scheduled Television- Saturday morning cartoons and late-night TV used to be something special. These days, cartoons are on many channels, 24-7 and there’s no need to stay up late for any show because of TiVo.
- Sitcoms from the ’80s and ’90s- Many shows from the ’80s and ’90s already don’t make much sense. Characters got lost driving (no GPS?), had miscommunications with other characters (no cell phones?) and arguments about trivial things (no Google?).
What else are they missing?
