If you’re over twenty-five, or even (gasp!) above thirty, chances are you’ve said to someone younger than you that they just don’t understand how hard it was to be a kid before the year 2000 (which you also probably call Y2K). And it’s true!
Kids today will never know what it’s like to share a land line with their entire family, or what life is like without a cellphone. Although kids insist that they’re better off now since technology has advanced so quickly, there are a few things that they’re missing. Check a few of them out and let us know if you miss them too!

If you were born after the year 2000, you’ll never understand what dial-up internet was. Anyone over 25 can tell you about the screeching noise that you had to listen to before surfing the web.
Of course, we can’t forget the fact that if someone was expecting a phone call, you couldn’t use the internet. It wasn’t so bad though – you could always play some games on your Gameboy Color to pass the time.
