If you have read this before, I hope you enjoy reading it again. I got this from my sister and got a good chuckle out of it. Enjoy.

[QUOTE] 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! Stamps were 10
cents!







Child Protective Services didn't care if our parents beat us. As a
matter of fact, the parents of all my friends also had permission to
kick our ass! No where was safe!



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!







There were no CD players! We had tape decks in our car. We'd play our
= ; favorite tape and "eject" it when finished and the tape would come
undone 'cause that's how we rolled ; dig?

I am 48 and my parents were considerably older than most parents were when I was younger. I heard these things and many more situations that were hard to imagine just because we had a car! I did not hear the one where you hitch hike to the store to steal the music with your own hands! That is something that would never have come out of my parents mouths. Funny stuff though...the kids these days have no clue. That is what parents are for; to make them realize how easy they have it, but to forsee the future based on the past...the kids better get off their hineys and learn a xkill and get a job cause the parents won't have anything to leave them cause it was spent on getting them out of jail!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And now for the rest of the blog:






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 Play Station 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 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! 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!



&nb= sp;



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 or before!

The over 30 Crowd

These stupid little ipods...I carried a 30 pound boom box on my shoulder and box of casettes and extra batteries where ever I went. I remember pong and tank. Kickball and hide and go seek, now it's curball, lazy ass kids. A leaf blower? Pick up a rake. The scooters have motors now.

AND WE STILL HAD MORE FUN!!!! Long live us.

I think I'm going to take some of the language out of this and send it to my grandchildren......... heck, maybe even my grown daughter. lol

A busy signal if they were on the phone?....what about party lines that you shared with others in your neighborhood and if they were using the phone, you couldn't... and no one could call you either. It just rang busy and you got to listen to them get annoyed when ever you would pick up your phone to see if they were finished yet so you could make a call.

I have a friend who has a bunch of old albums/LP's, and his children call them big black, vinyl CD's.

Hey i remember that! or when you sat around all day waiting for the song then when you called to request it they said we just played that about 5 min. before you came on , so you had to wait til the next day.

I remember tricycles I had a yellow one no big wheel for me. But the neighborhood I lived in was very hilly. So to learn how to ride a bike was an obstacle course with a huge rose bush at the bottom of the steepest hill ( true story). Wow now i feel really old. thanks sugar this is a great blog!
