If you are 30 or older you will think this is hilarious!
When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears with their tedious diatribes about how hard things were when they were growing up; what with walking twenty-five miles to school every morning..... Uphill.....barefoot....... .....BOTH ways Yadda, yadda, yadda And I remember promising myself that when I grew up, there was no way in hell I was going to lay a bunch of crap like that on kids about how hard I had it and how easy they've got it!
But now that... I'm over the ripe old age of fifty , I can't help but look around and notice the youth of today. You've got it so easy! I mean, compared to my childhood, you live in a darn utopia!
And I hate to say it but you kids today don't know how good you've got it! I mean, when I was a kid we didn't have The Internet. If we wanted to know something, we had to go to the darn library and look it up ourselves, in the card catalogue!! Do you even KNOW what a card cataloge IS ? There was no email!! We had to actually write somebody a letter, with a pen! Thats correct PEN AND " GASP " PAPER !!
Then you had to walk all the way across the street and put it in the mailbox and it would take like a week to get there! Stamps were 10 cents!
Child Protective Services didn't care if our parents beat us. As a matter of fact, the parents of all my friends also had permission to kick our butts! Nowhere was safe!
There were no MP3' s or Napsters! You wanted to steal music, you had to hitchhike to the record store and shoplift it yourself and pray to god your parents or friends parents didnt find out ! " see previous comment " Or you had to wait around all day to tape it off the radio and the DJ would usually talk over the beginning and @#*% it all up! Or right in the middle your mom would yell " Would You Like Lunch ? " Lost more Good Ted Nugent Stuff That way ! There were no CD players! We had 8 track tape decks in our car. We'd play our favorite tape and "eject" it when finished and the tape would come undone - cause that's how we rolled, dig?
We didn't have fancy crap like Call Waiting! Our call waiting was if mom had the phone your sorry butt WAITED !! If you were on the phone and somebody else called they got a busy signal, that's it! And we didn't have fancy Caller ID either! When the phone rang, you had no idea who it was! It could be your school, your mom, your boss, your bookie, your drug dealer, a collections agent, you just didn't know!!! You had to pick it up and take your chances, mister! And cell phones ?? Crap that was just a fantasy on StarTrek !!
We didn't have any fancy Sony Playstation video games with high-resolution 3-D graphics! We had the PinBall Machine ! With lights and sounds and cost 25 cents to play . You actually had to use your imagination!! And there were nomultiple levels or screens, it was just one screen forever! And you could never win. The game just kept getting harder and harder and faster and faster until you died!
Just like LIFE!
You had to use a little book called a TV Guide to find out what was on! You were screwed when it came to channel surfing! You had to get off your butt and walk over to the TV to change the channel! IMAGINE THAT !! NO REMOTE ! There was no Cartoon Network either! You could only get cartoons on Saturday Morning. Do you hear what I'm saying!?! We had to wait ALL WEEK for cartoons, you spoiled little brats!
And God Forbid The President was on ! He would take up all 4 Channels !
And we didn't have microwaves, if we wanted to heat something up we had to use the stove ... imagine that! That's exactly what I'm talking about! You kids today have got it too easy. You're spoiled. You guys wouldn't have lasted five minutes back in 1970 or before!
