    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 Imagination!! And there were no multiple

    levels or screens, it was just one screen.


    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!


    The over 30 Crowd

    (Send this to someone you'd like to make smile,

    whether they are under 30 or not.)

    I was in high school in 1980. No locks on our locker, all the boys carried knives on there belts and we took our guns to school {in the school}.

    Never had any thing stolen out of our lockers, no one got stabbed and no one got shot. Why? If you caught any one stealing you kicked there butt and if anyone bullied you, you kicked there butt and the teachers were the referees. A lot of butts got kicked but no one got shot or stabbed.

    Now days the kids can’t just kick the guy’s butt they have to what until it all comes to a head then they have to get a hold of a gun some where and shoot a bunch of there class mates.

    Your right things were harder back then, maybe that is why my knuckles snap, crackle and pop now when I make a fist. By the way I was one of the school wimps as I was not a big strapping farm boy. My family was in the scrap metal business and I work every day 7 days a week hand loading steel in to trailers. But the bullies never came at me with less 6 guys. Boy life sure would have been a lot simpler if I only knew that a gun could have been used for something other then hunting a knife for skinning your game.

    I can remember our first color TV, I had to go outside to turn the big antenna. We were so excited when we got pong. I was 12 when we got our first air conditioner, living in Miami FL was fun. Only it was only in the livingroom. I slept with a fan.

    None of that matters when you can't find a living wage job despite having a college degree, and student loan companies own your soul. I'd rather take an MP3 and email-less society than what I have now.
