“THE YEAR WAS 1955.”

THE YEAR WAS 1955. (If I hadn’t lived through it, I wouldn’t believe it myself.)
                              
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!
The year was 1955.
