Getting involved in a trend is a big commitment and often times we look back and wonder what the heck we were thinking! I suppose that nothing lasts forever even when we are absolutely sure that they will. Here’s a list of some of those trends that you regret being a part of:
1. Buying up Beanie Babies.
These were a huge investment! So much so that this couple pictured is splitting up their collection in divorce court back in 1999. None of which are more than about $3.50 now on eBay.
2. Downloading from Limewire.
We had no suspicions when the zip file was 50 MB until we opened it.
3. Y2K Survival!
We were afraid that our computers would not understand the date change. We panicked and assumed the whole system would fail.
4. Rat Tail.
We just couldn’t give up having long hair. So, we always kept a little bit.
5. Pump shoes.
For whatever reason we believed that this would make us jump higher. Nothing really happened.
