Isn’t it funny how when you’re a kid, you have no perception of how the world really works or of how much things actually cost?
And, on top of that, you really have no clue about what’s actually classy or is a quality product.
But as you grow older, all that stuff comes into focus and it’s kind of fun to look back on those times and laugh at yourself.
And that’s what people on Twitter did recently in a very funny thread.
This tweet got the festivities kicked off.

4. Mind = Blown.
These things are pretty good, though.

10. In the big city.
Holiday trips to the city; which could mean dinner at Benihana—Oooh! The chef cooks the food right on the table! Or, Lüchow’s—Sachertorte and a Xmas tree so tall it goes right-through the ceiling! Or, Scandia—What’s smorgasbord? Or, Tower Suite—Whoa! Just look at that view! https://t.co/FwElskfyYI pic.twitter.com/TkNfD968O2

Unlimited salad and breadsticks.

12. So awesome.
Still my dream to have one someday…
If I saw one of these in a kitchen I instantly thought you were a millionaire/would spend a solid hour filling up glasses of ice water whenever I came over… https://t.co/elwyGcUoOz pic.twitter.com/th0WJJelHA

13. That looks awesome.
Back to the disco era.

Okay, now it’s your turn.
In the comments, talk to us about what YOU thought was incredibly classy when you were a kid.
