Do you remember?


Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging  7 cents  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 25 cents a gallon?  Guess we'd be better off leaving   the car in the garage.   

Did you see where some baseball   player just signed a contract for   $50,000 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're 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   government.   

The fast food restaurant is   convenient for a quick meal,   but I seriously doubt they   will ever catch on.   

There is no sense going on short trips any more for a weekend.  It   costs nearly $2.00 a night to stay   in a hotel .   

No one can afford to be sick anymore. At  $15.00 a day  in   the hospital, it's too rich for   my blood.   


If they think I'll pay  30 cents  for a haircut, forget it.   


Know any friends   who would get a   kick out of these,   pass this on!   Be   sure and send it to your kids and grandkids, too!

  1. ...And you can see what happened. Things got more expensive. People had to be paid more to make ends meet. Wages went up. Now they want to raise the wages first... What could possibly go wrong here?...

    1. Now-a-days the government pays you NOT to work!
