Things our grandkids will never understand

things our grandkids will never understand

Not that I have grandkids or anything :)

UPDATE: Part II: More things our grandkids will never understand

I have discontinued the Things Our Grandkids Will Never Understand mug and t-shirt. Sorry if you wanted one! Maybe I’ll come up with something else after a while based on this comic. In the meantime, check out the latest sticky comics merchandise at the official sticky comics store, Ten East

  • Going to the store to buy a CD of music. Renting movies. Being upset about missing a TV show episode (like in the days before torrents and PVRs). ^_^

    And portable CD players. I’ve seen little kids sporting ipods everywhere.

    analogue clocks will stay.. they reflect how time flows and let your mind imagine ‘in two hours time’

  • @Tim and Oliver: I hope analog clocks stick around, but I wonder if our hypothetical grandkids will know how to read them. I have friends who can hardly read them now.

    Funny stuff here, and the update was great as well. as they say, there is truth in jest…

  • Glenn

    How to make change without looking at the cash register for the correct amount.

    I’m only in my late teens and people my age already forgot what VCRs are! I remember when video stores only carried VHS tapes. Now it is all DVDs! wow.

  • I don’t even know what those things are! haha

    Hmm, Well, I’m only 30, raising two kids with my husband. We have analog clocks all over the house and teach them how to tell time with them. We teach our kids cursive handwriting, we have a VCR and VHS tapes still and we get the daily paper…


    How about the card catalogue in libraries? ‘Member those? They taught us how to use them in “library class” at school!

  • I grew up in the 80s

    Don’t forget pencil sharpeners.
