Changing times

Most students graduating high school recently and the next couple of years, were all born in the early to mid 1990s.

Here are somethings we did as kids that they have not experienced.

They never twisted the coiled handset wire aimlessly around their wrists while chatting on the phone.

they have never seen a carousel of Kodachrome slides.

The Green Giant has always been Shrek, not the big guy picking vegetables.

They have never used a card catalog to find a book

Dont realize that Johnny Depp has been acting for over 20 years.

Full Service gas stations are few and far between

They never used a Commodore64, Apple II, or Tandy computer

“Off the hook” definition changed

Stadiums now have corporate names

MTV no longer features music videos (thought it stood for Music Television)

Do you remember staying up late watching TV until the station signed off, then all you had was static?

They have no clue of “Im a little bit country, and Im a little bit rock-n-roll”

There was a time you did not get a choice of cable company or phone company.
