What was being said 55 years ago?

Blog, Blogroll No Comments

It’s amazing what the thoughts and beliefs were 55 years ago.

Below are just a few things to think about, especially for us old enough to remember these to be true.

Here ya go!

‘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 $20.00.

‘Have you seen the new cars coming out next year?

It won’t be long before $2,000.00 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 $1.00,

Nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store. ‘

‘When I first started driving,

Who would have thought gas would someday cost 29cents a gallon..

Guess we’d be better off leaving the car in the garage.

[I just filled up today and it costs me over $50.00]

‘I’m afraid to send my kids to the movies any more..

Ever since they let Clark Gable get by with saying


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.

‘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 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 $15.00 a night to stay in a hotel.

‘No one can afford to be sick anymore,

At $35.00 a day in the hospital it’s too rich for

my blood.’

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

{ I was listening to a person today who said he paid $350.00 for a pair of jeans!!!!!!!!! True Story.}

Let me know of any you could add to this list. Thanks
