24+ Reasons Why Growing Up In The 90s Fucking Sucked

Published

The 90’s were a great time, life was fun, the music was fun and the fashion was… Comfortable. Ok, let’s be honest, the fashion was awful, but I see you all still rocking the jelly sandals and the chokers.

But though we look back on it fondly, that doesn’t always mean they were simpler times. Oh no, in fact, there were many things that made the 90’s an absolute ball ache to live in. So much so that I don’t think many kids of today’s generations would be able to hack it if they had to swap eras right now.

Times were tough, but we were happy. I told my young cousins that the internet used to make a noise (dial-up) when you tried to connect. They thought I was insane and they still didn’t believe me, even when I played them the sound.

Kids these days wouldn’t last 1 week inside our 90’s Thunderdome. My word would it be a good TV show though, can somebody make it happen, please?

We’ve managed to scope out 25 of the greatest references, struggles and technology that perfectly showcase the struggles us 90’s kids had to face.

1. Hoping nobody else had rented the movie you wanted to watch

2. Scrolling through endless folders just to get to the one thing you need

3. Downloading files was like trying to free your trapped scrotum from your zipper

4. Printed road directions were the SatNav of yesteryear

5. Wanna know what movies to watch? Let’s hope you didn’t throw out the paper

6. When grandma calls and the internet punishes you for it

7. Pretty much every web page looked like this. Christ, I forgot how awful it was! Remember Piczo? Professional websites looked like Piczo.

8. Good luck trying to get a glimpse of a tit in the 90’s, pornography was not of strong quality.

8. If you missed your program, good luck finding that again! You either recorded it on VHS or you prayed for a repeat.

9. Cleaning out the gunk from your computer mouse… My god that was a lot of gunk!

10. You had to wait till you were back from your holiday before you realised that your finger was covering the lens in every shot

11. The only things we were blowing in the 90s was Mario and James Bond (not like that)

12. You’d spend 80% of your car journey trying to find the song you wanted

13. The eternal struggles of a scratched CD, you don’t get that on Spotify

14. Or the lies with your music skipping on the move

15. You got tangled up in your house phone

16. Or would be limited to where you could go. “Back in my day we didn’t have privacy”

17. This OCD trigger, once it tangles, you’ll never untangle it

18. This absolute tragedy was enough to bring a tear to your eye

19. And you’d have hell to pay if you taped over somebody else’s VHS

20. Need to call your friends? You had to lug out this big bitch and try and find them

21. Or worse, try and find a number in the Yellow Pages

22. The main screen we stared at on our phones

23. Not having the luxury of browsing the internet while you poop

24. Getting black ink on your Crayola felt tips was a pretty tough day

25. The huge biceps us 90’s kids had all because of car windows

90s 90's
