15 Things That Will Make Baby Boomers Nostalgic For The Good Ol’ Days


Ah, the good old days. When you ate dinner with your family after playing outside all day. You didn’t get a text message to tell you it was time for dinner. If you weren’t home before the streetlights came on, you knew you’d be in trouble with your mom.

Baby boomers make up the largest generation there is (hence the name), consisting of people born between 1946 and 1964. There are some things that Generation Y and millennials just won’t understand!


1. Rotary phones


Long before cell phones were in our pockets, there was the rotary phone. You had to really know the phone number well to make that call.


2. Putting baseball cards in your bike spokes


Nothing sounded cooler than having your baseball cards hitting the spokes of your bicycle. Whenever you did this, you also swore it made you ride faster.

3. Swanson TV dinners


You can practically smell this picture.

4. Tin foil on the TV antenna


Millennials would never understand this. Most kids this day wouldn’t even know that TVs once had an antenna attached, but back in the day, this was the only way to get a really clear picture.

5. Seeing an advertisement for tobacco


An ad where a doctor tells you to smoke? You’d never see anything like this in 2018.

6. Using a payphone

The Verge

So, technically, payphones do still exist. But if you asked someone to tell you who changed in a phone booth, they’d totally be at a loss.

7. The milkman

Back in the day, you didn’t go to the grocery store to buy milk. It was brought straight to your front door.

8. Jell-O dishes


Didn’t like salad? Well, your mom put it in Jell-O and you were expected to enjoy every bite!
