Remember when you were a kid and a hangnail was the end of the world? You'd step in a puddle wearing your brand new Keds and wonder why the world was so against you. There were so many things that made us sad in the '90s, pretty much because anything was bound to make us sad as kids. I can remember crying to my mom one time because my brother drank my root beer. I once got into a screaming match with my sister over a washcloth one of us left in the shower. I can remember absolutely losing my sh*t over a game of Snood that I just couldn't win.
It wasn't the '90s' fault. Years later as a young 20-something, I spent about a year working in a daycare. We had a toddler who would actually slam his head onto the tile (several times) when he didn't get what he wanted. Why are we so dramatic as youngsters?!
Technology has made things so easy on us today. Too easy. I think we've forgotten the days of the '90s where we actually had to get up and push a button to turn the TV on and off. Now, I'm guessing I'm not the only one who was upset by these things.
