"In the “I’m getting old” department.., a kid saw this and said, “Oh, you 3D-printed the ’Save’ icon.”"

 

"My daughter just asked why we say “hang up” the phone and now I feel 90."

 

"I asked my 6-year-old if he knows what this is. He said it is a tape player. And then he asked, “How do you turn it on?”"

 

 

"One of my students really wrote a sentence that begins, “In the late 1900s.” I had to re-read it 3 times to realize what the heck was going on. My feelings are hurt."

 

"I asked my 5-year-old if she wanted to tape a TV show. She looked confused, then went to a drawer and brought me Scotch tape. I’m obsolete."

 

"Watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse with my kid and Mickey just called a record player an ancient machine. From now on I’m going to tweet in hieroglyphics."

"I was just watching “I Love Lucy” and my 5-year-old was like, “Mom, what’s wrong with the TV, all the color is missing.”"

 

"Him: Mommy, what IS a postcard?

Me: A prehistoric text message.

Him: Did they send them on beepers? *blink*

Me: No. Just... no."

 

 

"The kids I nanny for asked why I wanted to see Incredibles 2 and I said because the first one came out when I was a kid and they really asked ...if it was in color."

 

"Some little kid just came up to me on the train & asked me what this is. My heart shatters for children everywhere."

 

"Y’all a 5-year-old little boy just asked me what this blue thing is... I told him it was a portable radio and he asked what a portable radio does... I don’t know how to feel, this is not okay."

 

"I told an 18-year-old the other day that I used to get Netflix delivered to me in the mail and I’m pretty sure he thought I was lying."

"My son just asked me what this is — he’s 11 years old ...have times changed THAT much?!"

 

"In the back of an Uber the other day my 11-year-old asked me what this thing on the door is."

 

 

"Watching cable with my eldest son and a commercial comes on. He asked to skip it and I said you can’t skip TV ads. I then told him you have to pay to watch these too and he looked at me like I was crazy."

 

"I just found a phone from the ’90s with a hashtag! Twitter wasn’t even invented then, why did they need a hashtag back then?"

 

"So my kid is so excited about a book that was delivered to our driveway yesterday. “Mom,” he asked incredulously, “Is EVERYBODY’S name in there?” Yep, my 11-year old had never seen a phone book."

 

"Watchin’ a movie with Ollie and the girl is texting on a flip phone and he asks me, “How do you type on those phones?”"

 

 

"I know I’m old when I talk to teenagers about burning a CD and they actually think I’m literally burning a CD... I’m surprised they don’t ask what a CD is."

"My 9-year-old just asked me what this is? When did it come out? 1955? Is it for music? ~ I bought it the year before you were born."

 

"I asked my sister’s daughter what this is and she said it’s a microwave."

 

"I’m old enough to know what the link is between these 2."

Life, you'll get all the way with that pen, but it's going to be a struggle.

#14 Are phone books still a thing? They stopped publishing those decades ago here.

#16 I still use my iPod nano to listen to music while I ride on the exercise bikes at the gym. It’s easier than using a phone.
