16. Summoning a cab.
It was a toss-up between flailing in the middle of the street, upstreaming a little old lady in the rain, and paying a disgusting amount of money for a private service to come pick you up.
17. Settling for your phone’s crap games.
Though to be fair, one can never tire of breaking those bricks.
18. Having no emojis.
Who were we before the dancing red dress lady came into our lives? To answer our own question, we will leave you with all that we had -- :(
19. Thinking of the hashtag as the pound sign.
It used to be the punctuation that signaled the end of an infuriating conversation with an automated recording over the phone, but now the mighty hashtag has assumed its position corralling all of our collective attentions towards the #blessed zeitgeist.
20. Not being able to immediately comment on anything until hours after it happens.
You weren’t able to let off a stream of expletives in 140 characters or less to let the world know how you felt about a traffic jam. You had to wait -- and then who would care by then? (You probably wouldn’t.)
21. Trying to open a web browser on a flip phone out of desperation.
Someone, somewhere is still waiting for his profile page to load on some social media platform nobody uses anymore. (It’s a flip phone, so he hasn’t had to charge it since 2004.)
