Comments Made In 1955

Thanks to my friend Debra for the following;

******************************************************************

Comments made in the year 1955:


            "I'll tell you one thing, if things keep going the way
They are, it's going to be impossible to buy a week's groceries for $20."

            "Have you seen the new cars coming out next year? It
Won't be long before $2000 will only buy a used one."


            "If cigarettes keep going up in price, I'm going to
Quit. A quarter a pack is ridiculous."


            "Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging
A dime just to mail a letter?"


            "If they raise the minimum wage to $1, nobody will be
Able to hire outside help at the store."

            "When I first started driving, who would have thought
Gas would someday cost 29 cents a gallon. Guess we'd be better off
Leaving the car in the garage."

            "Kids today are impossible. Those duck tail hair cuts
Make it impossible to stay groomed. Next  thing you know, boys will
Be wearing their hair as long as the girls."


             "I'm afraid to send my kids to the movies any more.
Ever since they let  Clark Gable get by with saying 'damn' in 'Gone
With The Wind,' it seems every new movie has either "hell" or "damn"
In it.


            "I read the other day where some scientist thinks  it's
Possible to put a man on the moon by the end of the century. They
Even have some fellows they call astronauts preparing for it down in Texas
."


            "Did you see where some baseball player just signed a
Contract for $75,000 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 are 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."


            "Marriage doesn't mean a thing any more; those Hollywood
Stars seem to be getting divorced at the drop of a hat."


            "I'm just 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 congress."


            "The drive-in restaurant is convenient in nice weather,
But I seriously doubt they will ever catch on."


            "There is no sense going to Lincoln or Omaha anymore for
A weekend. It costs nearly $15 a night to stay in a hotel."


            "No one can afford to be sick any more; $35 a  day in
The hospital is too rich for my blood."


            "If they think I'll pay 50 cents for a hair cut, forget it."

Hilarious!  The sad thing is that the comments we make today will seem just as absurd to our grandchildren in 50 years! Hmmmm.
