things kids will never understand

i was in a car with a friend of mine and our kids (boys, 10, 9 & 6) when the 6 year old said why do you say roll up the window?  You mean push up the window!  my 10 year then explained that "back in the old days" people actually had to roll the window up themselves!  

 

this got me thinking...what are some things that you have done/said/seen that these poor children will never understand?

Mine closed a year ago, but all the movies were discounted like crazy! I stocked up!

Ours too good news was we got a ton of Wii games for the kids for 3.00 a game. 

Speaking of games, my kids asked me what a "classic controller" was...I laughed

Beepers, collect calls, pay phones, phone books, phones with cords...apparently communication has changed drastically over the years lol

Re: things kids will never understand

You are lucky to find a phone booth with a pay phone. Never mind actually having the change on you to make the call!

vhs, dial-up (that was a pain in the butt. You either had to chose between the internet or the phone..not both) ...A9SbBaACQAApSK6.jpg

I know I did.

Re: things kids will never understand

LOL when I wanted to use the phone, but my brother was using the dial-up, I would pick up the phone and let it sit for 5-10 seconds, and he would get kicked off the internet!
