THE SPOILED UNDER-30 CROWD !!!

If you are 30 or older you will think this is hilarious!!!!

When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears

With their tedious diatribes about how hard things were.
When they were growing up; what with walking Twenty-five
miles to school every morning.
Uphill... barefoot....BOTH ways

Yadda, yadda, yadda

And I remember promising myself that when I grew up,
There was no way in hell I was going to lay
A bunch of crap like that on kids about how hard I had it
And how easy they've got it!
But now that... I'm over the ripe old age of
Thirty, I can't help but look around and notice the youth of today.

You've got it so easy! I mean, compared to my
Childhood, you live in a damn Utopia!
And I hate to say it but you kids today you
Don't know how good you've got it!

I mean, when I was a kid we didn't have The Internet.
If we wanted to know something,
We had to go to the damn library and
Look it up ourselves, in the card catalogue!!
There was no email!! We had to actually write
Somebody a letter, with a pen!
Then you had to walk all the way across the street and put it
in the mailbox and it would take like a week to get there!

There were no MP3' s or Napsters! You wanted to Steal music, you
had to hitchhike to the damn record store and shoplift it yourself!
Or you had to wait around all day to tape it off the radio and the DJ'd
usually talk over the beginning and @#*% it all up!

We didn't have fancy crap like Call Waiting! If you
Were on the phone and somebody else called they got a busy signal, that's it!

And we didn't have fancy Caller ID either!
When the phone rang, you had no idea who it was! It could be your school,
Your mom, your boss, your Bookie, your drug dealer, a collections agent, you
Just didn't know!!! You had to pick it up and take your chances, mister!

We didn't have any fancy Sony Playstation video
Games with high-resolution 3-D graphics! We had the Atari 2600! With games
Like 'Space Invaders' and 'asteroids'. Your guy was a little square! You
Actually had to use your I magination!! And there were no multiple levels or
Screens, it was just one screen Forever!

And you could never win. The game just kept getting
Harder and harder and
Faster and faster until you died! Just like LIFE!


You had to use a Little book called a TV Guide to find out what was
On! You were screwed when it Came to channel surfing! You had to get off
Your ass and walk over to the TV to change the Channel and there was no
Cartoon Network either! You could only get cartoons
On Saturday Morning. Do you Hear what I'm saying!?!
We had to wait ALL WEEK For cartoons, you spoiled
Little rat-bastards!

And we didn't have microwaves, if we wanted to heat
Something up we had to use the stove ... Imagine that!
That's exactly what I'm talking about! You kids
Today have got it too easy.
You're spoiled. You guys wouldn't have lasted
Five minutes back in 1980!

Regards,
The over 30 Crowd

And the cars;

The car I learned to drive on was a 1955 Ford – my dads first car – hand me down and was 18 years old when I got it.
I was in high school with 900 kids and 5 of us had our own cars. (check that out today – only 5 kids don’t have their own cars)

It had:
No heated seats,
No power mirrors,
No heated windshield,
No power brakes,
No power steering,
No automatic transmission – 3 on the tree,
No traction control,
No radial tires, - bias ply,
No power locks,
No power windows,
No air conditioning,
No padded dash,
No halogen headlights,
No rugs – floor mats
No disc brakes - drum brakes,
No seat belts,
No headrests,
No airbags,
Had an oil bath air filter,
Had an AM radio with 1 speaker (was deluxe),

And I loved it!

(man when I list that today I don’t think I could drive it now!)

OH MY GOD THAT WAS SOOO F*&KING GOOD...AND TRUE! I'm 32 and I know all about the damn card catalogue. But...I disagree with the microwave thang. I did have one of those and used it whenever I could.
