Humor: What Life Was Like Before Smartphones in 5 Hilarious Pictures

Yes Billy, there was a time before smartphones. What was it like you ask? Horrible. Downright horrible.

Ok, so it wasn’t really that bad. In a way, the time before smartphones was kind of nice. You had to go places to find your friends, find some way to get a physical copy of your favorite band’s album and know how to read a paper map. Oh how I long for simpler times.

For those of you who can’t (or just don’t want to) remember a time before smartphones, just take a look at the pictures below to get an idea of what life was like way back in the day. Enjoy!
