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 mag ination!! 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 (well, I didn't have to do this, we had a remote control with our converter box) 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

For those of us that are older than fifty, there were two other aspects. There was no cable or satellite TV. I lived in LA. We were lucky as we had seven channels where as most locales only got one to three. We didn't get a color TV until I was well into high school.

Then there was the radio, ugh. FM radio was only educational or classical music. You had a format called top 40. That meant that you might hear a tune by the Stones, then have to suffer through Dean Martin, Johnny Cash, or the Supremes, before something by the Beatles got played. It roughly translated to less than three minutes of anything you wanted to hear being played over a half hour interval.

Good post, green thingie.

Yep what Word said. And if you lived in the country you had to use something called rabbitt ears or have a huge outside antenna and only then you were lucky to pull the signals in. Usually they would be snowy and barely noticeable. Greenie for you Shawn.

LOL....so true, so true!

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!

I thought that way too and now I am constantly telling my kids just that! The kids these days don't seem to have much of an imagination either...the technology today has ruined that. I loved Atari. I tried to find one at a couple stores around here that sell used electronics (found an old Nintendo there), but I can't find one

I want my MTV, money for nothing, and chicks for free. Sure you children of the 80's had it rough.

Sure you children of the 80's had it rough.



I don't think I had it rough at all. I just think that the technology that there is today makes children, teenagers, and young adults more of the "wanting it now" generation and like I said before, less imaginative.

And dammit...I want my MTV!!!!

Yeah, and you had the famous Gil Whitney on WHIO TV that had his prediction of winter because the color of the "Wooley Worm" and the color of the "Skwirl's" (Had to add that one ) There was no DVD's on a Saturday, You had "Shock Theater" with Barry Hobart ***AKA*** Dr Creep speaking of which there was no Rob Zombie also, because Dr Creep was about like him an early version of him. Sex was easier that was for sure for a guy, none of this working out stuff with aerobics and the woman squeezing you to death like a Suzzanne Summers thigh master LMAO!
80's was more intimate for a man and a woman and less group sex, remember those times well!

" You think you had it rough? We actually had to TYPE text for emails and blogs, PLUS use our hands to play video games, dammit....now go plug in your brain jack and STFU."

Yep...it could be real soon that parents are over heard saying, "Yes, you can plug in your 'Brain Jack', but sit still...don't you dare move...if you even think a thought and scratch your nose all your friends and family members could recieve a "ThoughtMail" you could live to regret!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Be scared...be very scared!

yeah they are spoiled, but consider yourself lucky because back then in my third world country, like in my city, there's just 20 people who had tv and neighboring kids would wait on windows till that TV owner turns it on and let them watch through the window. Lucky for them because my grandfather has a big house and he'd let them all in and even cook porridge for all of us kids for our snack. Greenie my friend.

Microwaves make everything soggy, and mp3's sound horrible. Cds are lower fidelity than vinyl, and all the bands are trying to sound like Joy Division.

If you want high fidelity music you have to go to a specialty store or (arghhh) hot topic (they of all people sell lps, but you have to stand in line behind the smelly emo kids and put up with the overly polite and cheery "punk goth" kid behind the counter).

The video games have gotten too easy, the music is to corporate, all the food is soggy and the clothes are no longer made to last for more than a couple months (I have had three hundred dollar jeans litteraly fall apart on me- and the cheap ones didn't exactly hold up much better).

Nothing is made in america anymore and we elected a leader as dumb as Reagan and as crooked as nixon for TWO TERMS.

We are stuck in not one but two middle eastern quagmires, one of which was started under false pretenses and sold to us via misrepresentations of truth and forged documents...atleast Reagan had the decency to simply use drug money to illegaly fund foreign "freedom fighters"...that was more honest and decent.

Did I mention Nigerian scammers, skewed news sources (like "newsmax") with no accountablity, paypal scams and indecency prosecution (the fbi's Obscenity Prosecution Task Force ...


Yeah, jolly old time to be alive.
