Here are a few things that Americans were saying in 1959. Some of you will remember, some will only laugh... * 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 $2,000 will only by 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 30 cents a gallon? Guess we'd be better off leaving the car in the garage. * Kids today are impossible. Those duck tail haircuts make it impossible to stay groomed. Next thing you know, boys will be wearing their hair as long as the girls. * Pretty soon, you won't be able to buy a good 10-cent cigar. * 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. * 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 have to work to make ends meet. * It would be long before young couples are going to have to hire someone to watch their kids so they can both work. * 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 the city for a weekend. It costs nearly $15 a night to stay in a hotel. * No one can afford to be sick anymore. $35 a day in the hospital is too rich for my blood. * If a few idiots want to risk their necks flying across the country, that's fine, but nothing will ever replace trains. * I don't know about you, but if they raise the price of coffee to 15 cents, I'll just have to drink mine at home. * If they think I'll pay 50 cents for a haircut, forget it. I'll have my wife learn to cut hair. * We won't be going out much anymore. Our babysitter informed us she wants 50 cents an hour. Kids think money grows on trees.
