Me: back in my day, we had to have clear plastic bags and we didn’t have smart boards
Teens: *gathered round me* what why?? How did you do anything??
Me: because people kept bringing weapons to school! Clear back packs made that difficult. And teachers would write on the white boards!
Teens: what what what
Me: true story. And we also didn’t have mirrors in the bathrooms for a little while
Teens: GET OUT YOUR LYING
Me: you sweet, spoiled infants
Also it’s so wild, we used to be locked into the school for security purposes and now they don’t lock the doors??? That’s so wild.
