If you are 36, or older, you might 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 forty, 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!

1) 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 ourselves, in the card catalog!!

2) 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!

3) 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!

4) There were no MP3′s or Napsters or iTunes! If you wanted to steal music, you had to hitchhike to the record store and shoplift it yourself!

5) 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 then the tape would come undone rendering it useless. Cause, hey, that’s how we rolled, Baby! Dig?

6) 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!

7) There weren’t any freakin’ cell phones either. If you left the house, you just didn’t make a damn call or receive one. You actually had to be out of touch with your “friends”. OH MY GOSH !!! Think of the horror… not being in touch with someone 24/7!!! And then there’s TEXTING. Yeah, right. Please! You kids have no idea how annoying you are.

8) 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 parents, your boss, your bookie, your drug dealer, the collection agent… you just didn’t know!!! You had to pick it up and take your chances, mister!

9) We didn’t have any fancy PlayStation or Xbox video games with high-resolution 3-D graphics! We had the Atari 2600! With games like ‘Space Invaders’ and ‘Asteroids’. Your screen 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!

10) 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!!! Oh, no, what’s the world coming to?!?!

11) 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 rat-bastards!

12) And we didn’t have microwaves. If we wanted to heat something up, we had to use the stove! Imagine that!

13) And our parents told us to stay outside and play… all day long. Oh, no, no electronics to soothe and comfort. And if you came back inside… you were doing chores!

And car seats – oh, please! Mom threw you in the back seat and you hung on. If you were lucky, you got the “safety arm” across the chest at the last moment if she had to stop suddenly, and if your head hit the dashboard, well that was your fault for calling “shot gun” in the first place!

See! That’s exactly what I’m talking about! You kids today have got it too easy. You’re spoiled rotten! You guys wouldn’t have lasted five minutes back in 1970 or any time before!

Regards,
The Over 40 Crowd

 If it was that obvious you wouldn't have so many people who were ofended by it, but keep telling yourself whatever you want I'm sure you think your little miss perfect anyway who am I to say otherwise

Quoting glitterteaz:

it is obvious to those with personalities that aren't dull

Quoting witchybabymomma:

 I think people are getting pissy because it comes off completely judgemental and rude and is not funny in the least. If it was meant as a joke maybe that should have been said.

Quoting punky3175:

How about:

1) you realize that glitter didn't actually write this

And

2) get a sense of humor.

It's meant to be funny. Why are so many people getting so pissy about this?


Quoting witchybabymomma:

 yeah ok sure whatever you say


get a life please

Funny cause I heard Walter going biiiitchh bibiiitchhh bibiiiiiittttccchh when ya walked into the post. 

Quoting witchybabymomma:

 I have a personality it's called not eing a bitch to people you don't even know

Quoting glitterteaz:

Ahhh.... Here's a dollar buy a personality!

Quoting witchybabymomma:

 Actually I am part of that 30 something crowd and maybe you should pat yourself on the head with your it wasn't critisizing anyone but calls them "spoiled rat ba$tards"

And no where did any of my comments have anything to do with a sense of entitlement.

I don't need anyone to kiss my ass, or protect my self esteem. I also don't feel the need to not call out a rude BS post.

Quoting punky3175:

*pats on head* Sweetie, I'm assuming you are in that 20-something crowd. This was criticizing anyone. It's an observation of how much things have changed in the past 20-30 years. Us 'over 36 crowd' don't really care that your '20-something crowd' has more technology than we did when we were your age. What does irritate us is the sense of entitlement and 'don't hurt my poor fragile ego. Only say nice things.'

For us (that over 36 crowd and from this thread it's really more socio-economic background) this IS a childhood flashback.

With your comments, you sound like you feel a little guilty or defensive because we aren't telling you what a special snowflake you are. Guess what? Life is full of people NOT kissing your ass or protecting your self esteem.


Quoting witchybabymomma:

 It does say a lot like we annot read minds therefore something should be written the way it was intended. Fashback to childhood are funny, but not critisizing people who have things that people didn't us to have.


Like I said if it was meant as a joke that should have been said.


Quoting punky3175:

It says a lot about the people who view it as 'judgmental and rude' and those who took it as it was intended - a flashback to childhood which is funny as hell.

It.didn't help that my babysitter looked just like her (in my mind). I remember accepting my fate after looking around my family and seeing only brunettes and redheads.

Quoting Sisteract:

I think I actually lusted for that hair-

Quoting Kate_Momof3:

 This what I thought I was going to look like when I grew up:
