As is the case with many of my fellow '90s babies, I have this horrible habit of remembering things from the late '90s/early '00s and thinking they only happened ten years ago. NOT SO MUCH. Things have changed a lot, and that might be the understatement of the decade. Things happened in the 1990s that simply would not, could not, and probably should not happen today. Other things happened in the 1990s that maybe should come back, but they probably won't. Even though we look upon the '90s with idealistic nostalgia, we did some pretty unacceptable things. Some stupid things. Some dangerous things. Let's take a look, huh?
1. Walking to an Airport Gate to See Someone off ✈️ 👋
Oh, these wonderful days are so long gone. In one way, it's understandable. In another way, don't you wish you could still do this? Not only would dropping off travelers be a lot easier, but I miss the days of being able to kiss or hug or otherwise say goodbye at the gate.
