Woman Feels '1 Billion Years Old' As Shop Worker Has Never Heard Of Photo Albums Before

The shopper was left feeling like she was '1 billion years old' after asking for help to find the aisle selling photo albums and being directed elsewhere instead


Every year it feels like we're slipping further and further away from the past - and closer to a modern utopia.


Gone are the days of CD players, floppy disks, and the like - gadgets most of us use sparingly nowadays.


But in a shock to many, we might soon add photo albums to the list of pre-internet relics.


A baffled shopper claims a worker had never heard of the once-popular item - and directed her to the tech aisle - when she asked for help finding an album.


The customer, who was browsing inside a Target store at the time, said she felt '1 billion years old' after the exchange, and she's not the only one.


The encounter, shared online by Washington Post columnist Monica Hesse, stunned shoppers.


Monica tweeted: "I am in Target. I am trying to buy a photo album. I asked where they might be. Worker did not know what a photo album was. I said it was a place to keep pictures. He sent me to the tech aisle. He assumed I wanted memory to store more pictures on my phone. I am 1 billion years old."


In response, some commenters theorised the product might not be sold in Target, but others wondered if the confusion came down to the employee's age.


"This tweet made me grow 5 new gray hairs," read one reply. Someone else put: "Come back toward the pens, notebooks and art supplies. Poor little cyber kid."


"This hit home..times are changin'" thought another person.


Meanwhile, a different commenter said: "This feels like a parable for our age."


Elsewhere, an American teacher was shocked after a student accidentally called her the wrong name, but it wasn't mum.


Instead, the youngster asked for Alexa, seemingly mixing up the teacher with the tech assistant.


"Today I was called a name that I've never, ever been called before and this is how I know I'm teaching a different generation, the Gen Alphas," the educator explained on TikTok.


Stunned, commenters dubbed the mix-up 'genuinely scary'.
