Stay with this -- the answer is at the end. It will blow you away.

One evening a grandson was talking to his grandfather about current
events.
The grandson asked his grandfather what he thought about the shootings
at schools, the computer age, and just things in general.

The Grandfather replied, 'Well, let me think a minute, I was born
before:

*television

*penicillin

*polio shots

*frozen foods

*Xerox

*contact lenses

*Frisbees and

*the pill

There were no:

*credit cards

*laser beams or

*ball-point pens

Man had not invented:

*pantyhose

*air conditioners

*dishwashers

*clothes dryers

*and the clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air and

*man hadn't yet walked on the moon


Your Grandmother and I got married first, . . And then lived together.

Every family had a father and a mother.

Until I was 25, I called every man older than me, 'Sir'.
And after I turned 25, I still called policemen and every man with a
title, 'Sir.'

We were before gay-rights, computer- dating, dual careers, daycare
centers, and group therapy.

Our lives were governed by the Ten Commandments, good judgment, and
common sense.

We were taught to know the difference between right and wrong and to
stand up and take responsibility for our actions.

Serving your country was a privilege; living in this country was a
bigger privilege.

We thought fast food was what people ate during Lent.

Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins.

Draft dodgers were people who closed their fron t doors when the evening
breeze started.

Time-sharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and
weekends-not purchasing condominiums.

We never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CDs, electric typewriters,
yogurt, or guys wearing earrings.

We listened to the Big Bands, Jack Benny, and the President's speeches
on our radios.

And I don't ever remember any kid blowing his brains out listening to
Tommy Dorsey.

If you saw anything with 'Made in Japan' on it, it was junk

The term 'making out' referred to how you did on your school exam.

Pizza Hut, McDonald's, and instant coffee were unheard of.

We had 5 &10-cent stores where you could actually buy things for 5 and
10 cents.

Ice-cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar, and a Pepsi were all
a nickel.

And if you didn't want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough
stamps to mail 1 letter and 2 postcards.

You could buy a new Chevy Coupe for $600, . .. . But who could afford
one?
Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon..

In my day:

*'grass' was mowed,

*'coke' was a cold drink,

*'pot' was something your mother cooked in and

*'rock music' was your grandmother's lullaby.

*'Aids' were helpers in the Principal's office,

*' chip' meant a piece of wood,

*'hardware' was found in a hardware store and

*'software' wasn't even a word.

And we were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a
husband to have a baby. No wonder people call us 'old and confused' and say
there is a generation gap... And how old do you think I am?

I bet you have this old man in mind...you are in for a shock!

Read on to see -- pretty scary if you think about it and pretty sad at
the same time.

Are you ready ?????


This man would be only 59 years old.

So true... Didn't you just love those days? I remember them so well...

I wonder what happened to turn many (but not all, thank goodness) of the younger generations into disrespectful, rude, insonsiderate, cruel, selfish, nasty mindless little morons?

Sadly the problem is that there is no discipline allowed anymore. If you so much as raise your voice to your child they can report you and with drastic results. We spoiled them too much. The respect we were raised to have for our elders is non existant. I can't imagine my kids calling ANYONE sir! lol

Without repect what do you have? I'll tell you what, primal selfishness.


Sad
