Fuck.. that's what I miss the most. Not the consumerism part of it, but hanging out with my friends at the mall not doing shit. The smell of expensive fragrances wafting, the architecture, the happy white families enjoying an outing together. Tangible goods you can browse. A one stop shop for most everything you could need. The way they decorated it around Christmas. It was just a blast growing up in the white suburban 90s. Skateboarding, not giving a care about the world. Now everything and everyone is fucked. I'm forced to buy everything online and have it delivered by coloreds. There's nowhere to go, nothing to do.

You don't miss the mall you miss being a child with no responsibility and a grandeur view of a world you didn't understand. Children today will one day miss today, children tomorrow will one day miss tomorrow. You are not special, neither was the time you were raised in.

Wrong. We had great music, awesome schools, our economy was thriving, houses were cheap as dirt, wages were still growing, food was ridiculously cheap, technology was becoming rapidly more advanced and accessible, there weren't many wars. The 90s were the best decade to grow up in. Even boomers agree with that.

Worked at a few different retail places when I was younger and Kmart was by far the most mismanaged place I ever worked at, and the only job I just walked out from, which really didn't do them any favors since they also had corporate management that had no idea what the fuck they were doing, and the store hadn't been renovated since the 80s and had computers from the 90s, I was unsurprised when the location closed 6 months after I quit

Even before I worked there I always kinda hated the place, had all the atmosphere of a dingy laundromat and kinda smelled like one too, no idea why people are so nostalgic about them

I'm old enough to remember when K-Mart had its own branded cafeteria, no Nathan's or Little Caesars or any of that stuff. They had the greasiest burgers ever and I had to beg my mom to get me one.

KDW is completely fucking different, truly the european mind cannot comprehend the temple to American dominance that was the modern gilded age of shopping. I've been to KDW, the floor of food was fine, and I enjoyed the roof seating, but it's absolutely completely different from anything anyone in this thread is talking about.

Sorry bro, you just had to be there.

I was there fucker, I ate breakfast there.

>> No.16312510

I meant growing up in parking lot America in the 90's and early 00's. KDW itself was mediocre, as was the food, sorry. Outside of very nice restaurants, Bavaria absolutely destroys the rest of Germany in the day to day culinary experience, and it's not even close. I overpaid for food I could easily cook better or buy cheaper in Berlin, except for one coffee shop / bakery I visited next to the smaller KPM store.

>> No.16312525

I miss the tangibility of it. It's our own fault. We are all so excited when we could buy shit on the internet for cheap and predictably when the old model died out the new model could start selling everything at the old price.
We have access to all the shit we could ever want to buy but we killed the social connection of it. It was fun spending the afternoon fucking around with your friends. Mindlessly browsing Amazon and sending memes with your friends on discord just aren't the same

You seem to be the racist, as is very common with your types. I simply don't give a shit about your fucking nations and don't want to visit them.
If you want to call me racist for disagreeing with you then you must have been shillary supporters since that's the best that they can do.
Are you still seething in your closets because Trump beat your annointed one?
