The Good Old Days ??


Hard to believe but I was there making $0.38 an hour

THE YEAR WAS 1955 AND . . Crazy, but true!!

THE YEAR WAS 1955.. (if I didn’t live through it, I wouldn’t believe it myself)
Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging 7 cents just to mail a letter?

If they raise the minimum wage  to $1.00,
nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store.

When I first started driving, who  would have thought gas would someday cost 25 cents a gallon?  Guess we’d be better off leaving  the car in the garage.

Did you see where some baseball  player just signed a contract for $50,000 a year just to play ball?  It wouldn’t surprise me if someday  they’ll be making more than the President.

I never thought I’d see the day   all our kitchen appliances would be electric. They’re even making electric typewriters now.

It’s too bad things are so tough  nowadays. I see where a few married women are having to work to make ends meet.

It won’t be long before young   couples are going to have to hire someone to watch their kids so they can both work.

I’m afraid the Volkswagen car  is going to open the door to a  whole lot of foreign business.

Thank goodness I won’t live to see the day when the government  takes half our income in taxes. I sometimes wonder if we are electing the best people to the government.

The fast food restaurant is  convenient for a quick meal,   but I seriously doubt they  will ever catch on.

There is no sense going on short trips any more for a weekend. It  costs nearly $2.00 a night to stay  in a hotel.

No one can afford to be sick anymore.   At $15.00 a day in  the hospital, it’s too rich for  my blood.

If they think I’ll pay 30 cents for a haircut,
forget it.

Know any friends  who would get a   kick out of these,   pass it on!       Be   sure and send it to your grandkids, too!
