    A home phone that had a one of the curly cords with a winding dial not a cordless or mobile

    Money for the bus or train not a swipe card

    Being able to play in the park with your friends without fear that there is no weirdo's watching.

    Default Kids these days...

    I saw on the Kmart website a kids 'My First CD Player' and I thought it would be their first and last, because they're not likely to see another one after they discover MP3!

    ETA: oh cr*p, that's if it's even MP3 anymore.. What format is digital music in now? I'm so slow with technology

    It being weeks of talk about how controversial that a teen pop star wore a crop top on telly or said a bad word.

    Babies just being put in a Moses basket or similar and placed on the back seat or floor of the car.

    Writing notes on paper in class because what phones?

    That dial-up sound with the screeching and beeping.

    Snake/Snake 2

    Polyphonic ringtones

    AND THEN being able to make your own polyphonic ringtones

    Static shocks every single time you got out of the car.

    Not knowing something and just having to accept that you'll probably never know the answer. If it's something really important then maybe you'd go to the library to look it up eventually.
    Or arguing with someone about a random fact. I still remember this giant stupid argument I had with a boyfriend at age 18 about who wrote a song that was playing in the pub, now that would be solved in about 5 seconds :P

    Writing and receiving letters rather than emails. Having to wait until your film was developed to see a photo rather than instantly on a screen. Having to wait 45 minutes for your game (on a cassette tape) to load on your Commodore 64 computer. Using dads typewriter for assignments and having to use liquid paper to correct mistakes. Not knowing what air conditioning was. Having to dial a number on a phone in a clockwise direction - and you would never know if someone was trying to call because there was no such thing as 'on hold' or 'missed call'. Not being able to contact mum when she was late for pickup because we didn't have mobile phones (dad later got a large brick car phone, that was permanently installed into the car. State of the art technology at the time!).

    Gosh I sound so freaking old.
