26 Struggles People Under The Age Of 15 Will NEVER understand

Kids these days have got it so easy - especially when it comes to technology. They are part of the digital generation and are surrounded by technology and the internet and they are using smartphones, tablets, e-readers and computers every day.

Lets look at some of the things we used to struggle with. Once you've had a giggle at some of these, you might never take present day technology for granted ever again!
