10 things millennials will never understand:
1. There was once a time before [insert streaming service of choice here].
2. Having to adjust the aerial for a better picture on your TV - no HD.
@Eusebius I'm a millenial & I don't miss having to hold the TV aerial at a weird angle for an hour for us to watch wrestling.— Night At the Museum (@BanNgidi) May 19, 2017
3. Making your way to the nearest telephone booth with small change or to make a collect call.

4. The highly technical skill needed to rewind or fix unraveling cassette tapes.
5. This slight broadcasting inconvenience.
6.Not immediately knowing how those selfies turned out. #Kodak
7. A kids show for the history books, before Disney channel.
8. Written communication not sent via an App?

9. When your floppy disk just wouldn't cooperate.
10. Before sliced bread hit the market (and when the milk man was still a thing).
