    Just in case you weren't feeling too old today ........


    The people who are starting college this fall were born in 1992.

    They are too young to remember the space shuttle blowing up.

    Their lifetime has always included AIDS.

    The CD was introduced two years before they were born.

    They have always had an answering machine.

    They have always had cable.

    Jay Leno has always been on the Tonight Show.

    Popcorn has always been microwaved.

    They never took a swim and thought about Jaws.

    They don't know who Mork was or where he was from.

    They never heard: 'Where's the Beef?',
    'I'd walk a mile for a Camel ' or
    'de plane Boss, de plane'.

    McDonald's never came in Styrofoam containers.

    They don't have a clue how to use a typewriter.

    Pass this on to the other old fogies on your list.



    P.S. Save the earth. It's the only planet with chocolate..

    When my dad closed his gas station in 73 gas was 54.9 for full service which included checking your battery and your oil and wiping your windows-- 49.9 for mini service which was only pumping your gas for you.
    Mini service was the first thing the industry tried to get more customers before self service was introduced a few years later.

    When my DH and I had our 2 gas stations in 1975 cigarettes were 50 cents a pack.

    Do you remember green stamps and gold regal stamps? We gave them out at my dad's service station. I remember my grandma saving them for my cousin and I to lick and put into the books so they could be redeemed for merchandise. Toasters bookshelves lamps etc.
