Someone Online Asked Desis To Show How Middle-Class They Are With Pics, Twitter Responded

Now, let’s talk about the thin line that separates the past and the future. There are certain things and habits that have survived the tides of time. And people online have been revealing the ones which have with pictures. Have a look:
