Obviously things have changed a lot since we were kids. With technology moving as quickly as it does, there are things that we used to do that seem completely outrageous now. The things that were normal even five or ten years ago seem completely archaic and ridiculous now.
There are definitely a few things that seem to stand out more than others though, especially when it comes to the things you forgot that you used to do regularly.
Being able to listen to music on a kiosk before buying it
These are probably still around in some malls, but a lot of the old CD stores seem to have closed down. I guess it isn't the worst thing, sharing headphones with hundreds of strangers isn't really the best thing ever.
Trying to find the right song on LimeWire when half of them are mislabeled
There is a special kind of evil out there and it resides in those who think it's okay to call a song by the wrong name. If you don't know the song, do not put it up there! It really wasn't fair to those of us on dial-up internet who waited three hours for it to download.
Being able to read song lyrics inside of the CD booklet
There was honestly nothing more disappointing than opening up a new CD and having it just be pictures of the band. Please include the lyrics, otherwise we have no way to know if we are right.
Cleaning out your mouse ball
You can't have that mouse getting all clogged up! Clean it out every few months and realize just how gross you really are.
Paying per text message
Remember how mad your parents would get if you went over the limit on your plan? Each text cost so much!
Reading the TV listings in the newspaper or in the TV Guide
This was the only way to know if your show was going to be a repeat or not!
