Technology is advancing everyday and with advancements we say good bye to the old way of doing things. But that doesn't mean we can't be bitter that today's kids will never get frustrated with some of the tasks below!

When you open your envelope of photos, you find out that half of them are blurry and you complete missed your self in the attempt of a "selfie."

Of course, right when you get on the channel, it just passed the channel you were eyeing! So you have to wait till it scrolls again!

Trying to find the number or listing for someone or a business and having to physically turn pages!

The first challenge was finding a blank VHS tape, so you didn't record over a home movie or the other episode of your favorite TV show.
5. Having To Rewind A VHS Tape & Wait
Be kind, rewind! The time it took to rewind a tape was 10 times longer than the time it takes rewind today.
6. Using The Pay Phone When You Are Out & About

You had to make sure you had change, so you could even afford that call!

Surprisingly libraries are still around, but their computer labs get more action than their bookshelves!

Now we have the convenience of a flash drive, but those floppy disks were reliable at one point, just as long as you did not break the metal part from sliding it so much. And to think that one floppy disk could only store maybe one or two documents!

Back in the day, you could not avoid prank callers, bill collectors, or crazy ex boyfriends or girlfriends.

You finally made it to the next level, but your Nintendo or Sega game console stopped working so you had to blow on the video game cartridge to cool it down and make it work.
What are some other things this generation and the next will never know or experience? Cassette tapes before CDS? Mixtape before playlists? Checking lyrics in the CD booklet? Dial up internet? TVs with antennas and barely any channels?
Do you think this generation and the next is spoiled by technology? Do you think it makes them lazy? What are your thoughts?
