Comments made in the year 1955!

Comments made in the year 1955!



I'll tell you one thing, if things keep going the way they are, it's going to be impossible to buy a week's groceries for $10.00.







Have you seen the new cars
coming out next year? It won't be long before $2,000.00 will only buy a used one.







If cigarettes keep going up in
price, I'm going to quit; 20 cents a pack is ridiculous.



Did you hear the post office is
thinking about charging 7 cents just to mail a letter.



If they raise the minimum wage
to $1.00, nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store.



When I first started driving, who
would have thought gas would someday cost 25 cents a gallon. Guess we'd be better off leaving
the car in the garage.



I'm afraid to send my kids to the
movies any more. Ever since they let Clark Gable get by with saying DAMN in GONE WITH THE WIND, it seems every new movie has either HELL or DAMN in it.







I read the other day where some
scientist thinks it's possible to put a man on the moon by the end of the century. They even have some fellows they call astronauts preparing for it down in Texas .



Did you see where some baseball
player just signed a contract for $50,000 a year just to play ball? It wouldn't surprise me if someday they'll be making more than the President.



I never thought I'd see the day
all our kitchen appliances would be electric. They're even making electric typewriters now.



It's too bad things are so tough
nowadays. I see where a few married women are having to work to make ends meet.



It won't be long before young
couples are going to have to hire someone to watch their kids so they can both work.



I'm afraid the Volkswagen car
is going to open the door to a whole lot of foreign business.



Thank goodness I won't live to
see the day when the Government takes half our income in taxes. I sometimes wonder if we are
electing the best people to government.






The fast food restaurant is
convenient for a quick meal, but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on.



There is no sense going on short
trips anymore for a weekend. It costs nearly $2.00 a night to stay in a hotel.



No one can afford to be sick
anymore. At $15.00 a day in the hospital, it's too rich for my blood.







If they think I'll pay 30 cents for a haircut, forget it.
