Think today’s first world problems are bad? Try living in the 90s.
Those were the days….. When watching a movie meant borrowing a tape from the video shop and remembering to rewind it before it was returned. When there was a enough time to make a cup of tea while the internet ‘dialed’.
When discmans didn’t always come with anti-skip protection and when meeting up with a friend meant picking a time AND STICKING TO IT.
Kind of makes today’s first world problems seem… even more trivial.
