You Know You're Getting Older If...

mark as unread

You're getting older if you can remember:

- Being sent to the drugstore to test vacuum tubes for the TV or radio.

- When Kool-Aid was the only other drink for kids, other than milk and sodas.

- When boys couldn't wear anything but leather shoes to school.

- When it took five minutes for the TV to warm up.

- When all your friends got their hair cut at the kitchen table.

- When nearly everyone's mom was at home when the kids got there.

- When nobody owned a pure-bred dog.

- When a dime was a decent allowance, and a quarter a huge bonus.

- When you'd reach into a muddy gutter for a penny.

- When girls neither dated nor kissed until late high school, if then.

- When your mom wore nylons that came in two pieces.

- When all your teachers wore either neckties or had their hair done, everyday.

- When Bible reading and prayer started every school day.

- When you got your windshield cleaned, oil checked, and gas pumped, without asking, for free, every time. And you got trading stamps to boot!

- When laundry detergent had free glasses, dishes or towels hidden inside the box.

- When any parent could discipline any kid, or feed him, or use him to carry groceries, and nobody, not even the kid, thought a thing of it.

- When it was considered a great privilege to be taken out to dinner at a real restaurant with your parents.

- When they threatened to keep kids back a grade if they failed--and did!

- When women were called, "Mrs. John Smith," instead of their own name.


How funny is this joke, video, picture?
