The 90s gave us so much – the Spice Girls, “In Living Color,” Nirvana, backwards jeans, no Facebook updates from embarrassing relatives – but it also came with frustrations and struggles that most kids today just wouldn’t understand. Let’s jump in:

1. Having to memorize beeper codes.

Not only that, but having to lie to your parents when she asked what “69” meant.

2. …And then having to find a pay phone to call back.

And when Mami beeped you, you damn well had better called back within three minutes. Or else.

3. Accidentally connecting to the internet on your phone.

You really deserve more credit for having been such a great, thoughtful kid to your parents. Qué no?

4. Wanting to connect to the internet and having to wait. And wait.

…And you probably had a super embarrassing screen name like QBanMami305.

5. Losing your floppy disc.

6. Disappointing la reina, Mavis Beacon.

She was the real MVP.

7. Ruining a cassette.

Tragic.

9. Paying more because you forgot to rewind your Blockbuster rental.

“Be Kind, Rewind”

And, worst of all…

10. Being constantly reminded of your mortality
