Being locked away from the world for an extended period of time can mess with you big time.

A recent Reddit thread asked former prisoners what it's like to return to society after a long absence. The answers might help us prepare for the end of self-isolation — whenever it may be.

1. Getting soda from a touchscreen is still pretty mind-blowing.

First day out I went to McDonald's and they changed the soda fountains to touch screen and let you add flavors and stuff blew my mind - trapmitch

2. Smartphones are shockingly smart.

The dishwasher at my old job served 26 years for murder. He was 21 when he went in, came out to a completely different world.

I remember him constantly asking me questions to look up on my smart phone, and I never got why. Finally I convinced him to get one and spent hours walking him through it. Then I realized he thought my phones sole functionality was to look up info and was taken aback at how much other stuff smartphones can do.

Nicest man in the world, still keep up with him to this day. - Spirited_Winter
