We had Britney, we had Justin, we even had Britney + Justin. There’s no denying that being born in the 90s was absolutely awesome. In a decade where you could wear crop tops and collect Beanie Babies things were great right? But what about the dark side of the 90s? These are the 15 hardships you knew if you were born in the Nineties…

1. Not being able to cope with how heart wrenching the Stole video was

2. Wanting to emulate the hairstyles of your favourite stars… but never getting it quite right

3. Playing MASH and realising you were going to marry a Hobo and keep snails for pets

4. Losing your dial-up connection in a crucial MSN moment and knowing that things would never be the same again

5. Not being allowed your belly button pierced and wondering why your parents were trying to ruin your life

7. Opening a new cereal box and finding the same toy you already had

10. Wearing your snapper trousers on non-school Uniform day and spending the entire day doing them back up
