Life before Google

Life before Google

  • You carried a dictionary and thesaurus in your schoolbag
  • You had pen pals and bought fancy writing paper for your letters
  • You used to hold the AA route planner print-out on your steering wheel as you tried to drive
  • You actually had to leave the house to buy your Christmas presents
  • And your groceries
  • Encyclopedias were actually read
  • You would keep the negatives of your holiday photos – just in case you lost the prints
  • You had to look interested in your nails when your mate/date popped to the toilet
  • You had to have awkward conversations on your parents’ landline with potential dates
  • You would send out party invitations in the post
  • You visited HMV every Saturday
  • You found jobs in your local paper
  • You’d spend half of your life listening to ‘on hold’ music on the phone as you tried to book trains, concerts, holidays…
  • You owned a cheque book
  • You took at least five paperbacks on holiday
  • Hours would be spent getting to the next level on Tetris
