Stereotypes from the early aughties (2000-2004) in America

  • No one had beards, unless they were from cultures that requirement them.
  • Cell phones only had digital readouts, and only had actual numeric 10-key pads. Although Treos come out in 2003 with full Internet, full QWERTY keypad, color touch screens, (pretty much iPhone 5's without the fancy hi-res screen; yes, Treo 300 in 2003 out featured iPhones being released in 2010). 
  • Terrorism was the boogie man for everything.  (Still is, actually.)
  • Texting was done with a special kind of pager with a QWERTY keypad or very clumsily on 10-key pad phones that happened to have texting function built-in. Traditional pagers still existed, but mostly used by drug dealers and doctors by this point.
  • No plaid, unless you lived in the mountains. No flashy patterns, either.
  • Low-rise jeans.
  • eBay was a thing back then.
  • Blockbuster stores were very popular...this is a few years before Netflix's first golden age.
  • There were still different types of gaming stores before Game Stop bought them all out.
  • Gearing up for war with Iraq. Blind patriotism was still rampant.
  • Simpsons reruns played in 1.5hr blocks on network TV.
  • Trend of kids bring dropped off and picked up at school every day by their parents had just started.
  • You had an option between Borders, Walden Books and Barnes & Noble for well stocked chain book stores.
  • Laptops were still kinda luxury items.
  • Kids enjoying Green Day had no idea that Green Day was a 90's band.

What do you remember?
