      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 my 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 ourse lves, 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!  Nowhere was safe!

      There were no MP3's or Napsters!  If 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 would 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?

      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!  NO REMOTES!!!

      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 retards!

      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 or before!

      Regards,
      The Over 30 Crowd

        • What was it they called it..party lines I think...anyways when our neighbors phone rang at their house there was a slight vibration on our phone, since I was always by the phone I was the only one that new about it, I could tell when they answered and I would pick it up and listen to the gossip...scandalous...

          We were my parent’s remotes.  I remember how many times my mother would say, get up and change to chanel # and you just did it. I’ve watched my daughter search for the remote for 15 minutes when she could have just walked up to the tv and change the chanel manually. And don’t even get me STARTED on the TV Guide! LOL!!!

        • WHOA! I was telling my daughter about jiffypop popcorn during the summer and she didn’t believe me. So I went to the store and bought some.  she and her friends had a good laugh watching me make that popcorn on the stovetop only for the bottom kernels to be all burned up! They DO have it too good!

        • After I read everything everyone said and I stopped laughing because I remember it all way to well. Hahaha I totally agree that these kids Do have it easy. I remember that if you wanted to talk with osmeone you had to get up, walk over to their house and knock on their door to say or tell them something. NO texting And lets be serious here, What can be all that important that a 9 year old simply HAS to borrow MY cell phone to call their friends? Hahahaha
          Or what about Drive-In movies? Does anyone remember those? There were no Big cinemas with huge cushy seats with Digital surround sound systems playing the soundtrack so loud your seat and YOU vibrate to it. All we had was this little speaker that Dad would hang in the front window that we could barely hear in the backseat of the 1957 Chevy station wagon. Ahhhh, to be young again right.hahahaha

        • It’s so sad that our kids will never know that anticipation of looking forward to Saturday morning cartoons.   Or know what it’s like to actually wonder who’s calling on the phone.

          I miss the big heavy telephone reciever that was so easy to cradle between your ear and your shoulder while you were working in the kitchen.  You tried that with a cell phone lately????
