Memories from the Past: THE YEAR WAS 1955...



SOME OF US may remember our parents saying some or all of the statements below. History does repeat itself.


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, 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

No one can afford to be sick anymore. At $15 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
