Default From The Over 30 Crowd

Received this via email and wanted to pass it on - LOL! (Sad, but true!)

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 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 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 ourselves, in the card catalog!!

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!

There were no MP3's or Napsters! 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'd usually talk over the beginning and @#*% it all up!

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 Boxes 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 Playstation video games with high-resolution 3-D graphics! We had the Atari 2600! With games like "Space Invaders" and "Asteroids" and the graphics sucked! 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!

When you went to the movie theater there no such thing as stadium seating! All the seats were the same height! If a tall guy or some old broad with a hat sat in front of you and you couldn't see, you were just screwed!

Sure, we had cable television, but back then that was only like 15 channels and there was no onscreen menu and no remote control! 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 and 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 brats!

And we didn't have microwaves, if we wanted to heat something up we had to use the stove or go build a frigging fire .. imagine that! If we wanted popcorn, we had to use that stupid Jiffy Pop thing and shake it over the stove forever like an idiot.

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 1970!

Regards, The over 30 Crowd

I HATE that the DAMN CARTOON NETWORK doesn't air Bugs Bunny. *FINGER* to them. Where the hell are all the good cartoons with historical references in them?

Bah....

Most of the them are now probably considered politically incorrect for one reason or another and no longer be aired.

LMAO I just bought an Atari 2600 off ebay to replace the one my husband gave away years ago. The kids are mad because I can kick their butts at Kaboom and Pacman. They've temporary abandoned their Play Station 2 and are trying to steal my new/old system from me.

Even at 21 I remember a lot of these things.

SOOOO much truth to the recording the songs off the radio. The DJ ALWAYS messed it up somehow. I remember having all my cassettes of radio ripped songs.

LOL... and the big controversy..

Did Hi-speed dubbing on a boom box decrease quality?

Excellent HTG!!!!...and lets not forget...If we were inside on a summer day, your Mom would scoot you outside until it was time to eat...and THEN when she called for you (or flashed the porch light) .....you had like 1.3 seconds to get home!!!

I can remember the first time I played organized football (with pads and a helmet) I thought "this beats the heck out of playing backyard tackle football in jeans and a t-shirt!!!!"

...and didnt we all have a place we called "the field" where we went to play?

I know that when I was younger I Didnt Want To Be Stuck In The House.. and usually if I was stuck in the house I got caught doing something I wasnt supposed to be doing.. We used to all do things that we should have got disciplined for, but we didnt get caught right? We had tree houses.. we dug out dirt in some banks to play with our matchbox cars and trucks etc. Come on kids... get out and do something other than sitting in front of the tv. That is one of the biggest reasons that america is gettting heavier and heavier around the belt line..
