Pre-’90s Skills That Are Completely Useless Today According To Texans
Remember back in the day when you had to blow into a video game cartridge to get it to work again?! Or, when you had to remember your house phone number or any phone number in general!

Kids these days just won’t understand the anxiety you got when you needed to call mom but you forgot the house number!
