What We Were Saying in 1957

I get a lot of stuff in email. A lot of things I file away to use later but this one was so neat, I decided to use it.

“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 $20.”

“Have you seen the new cars coming out next year?
It won’t be long before $2000 will only buy a used one.”

“If cigarettes keep going up in price, I’m going to
quit. A quarter a pack is ridiculous.”

“Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging a dime just to mail a letter?”

“If they raise the minimum wage to $1, nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store.”

“When I first started driving, who would have thought gas would someday cost 29 cents a gallon.

Guess we’d be better off leaving the car in the garage.”

“Kids today are impossible. Those duck tail hair cuts make it impossible to stay groomed.

Next thing you know, boys will be wearing their hair as long as the girls.”

“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.”
