The Biggest Struggles 90s Kids Survived That Kids Today Would Not Understand

Growing up in the 90s presented an interesting set of challenges. We were the first kids to learn about the internet, we were able to survive without DVRs, and we didn't have cellphones.

We really had a lot of things going on! There were some problems and struggles that are fairly universal that we all went through, and it's time to air it all out. Let's see if you ever experienced these dreaded problems from the 90s.

When you were on the internet but then your parents needed the phone

When your tape would get tangled but you didn't have a pencil handy

When your fancy new skip-free CD player lied

Having to answer the phone to know who it was because caller ID wasn't around

When you couldn't find a blank tape to record that show you really wanted to see

When you had to use Encarta to write a report because Google didn't exist yet

When your phone cord got tangled beyond repair

There are a lot more struggles you went through as a kid, click on the next page to see some of the worst ones possible!

When you rent a movie and they didn't follow the rule of Be Kind, Rewind

When the movie you wanted to rent wasn't at Blockbuster

When you looked away for a second and the TV guide channel flipped by the one you cared about

Listening to the sound of the internet connection every time you wanted to go online...It was painful

Running out of film in your camera

Getting your pictures developed and realizing your finger is in ALL of them

Getting caught passing notes in class

Not being able to pick the perfect word art font

Or even just Clippy in general...

We survived so much if you think about it...
