Here are a few things that Americans were saying in 1959. Some

of you will remember, some will only laugh...



* 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 $2,000 will only by 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 $1.00, nobody will be able

to hire outside help at the store.



* When I first started driving, who would have thought gas would

someday cost 30 cents a gallon? Guess we'd be better off leaving

the car in the garage.



* Kids today are impossible. Those duck tail haircuts make it

impossible to stay groomed. Next thing you know, boys will be

wearing their hair as long as the girls.



* Pretty soon, you won't be able to buy a good 10-cent cigar.



* 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.



* Did you see where some baseball player just signed a contract

for $75,000 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 are even making electric typewriters now.



* It's too bad things are so tough nowadays. I see where a few

married women have to work to make ends meet.



* It would be long before young couples are going to have to

hire someone to watch their kids so they can both work.



* I'm just 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 Congress.



* The drive-in restaurant is convenient in nice weather, but I

seriously doubt they will ever catch on.



* There is no sense going to the city for a weekend. It costs

nearly $15 a night to stay in a hotel.



* No one can afford to be sick anymore. $35 a day in the

hospital is too rich for my blood.



* If a few idiots want to risk their necks flying across the

country, that's fine, but nothing will ever replace trains.



* I don't know about you, but if they raise the price of coffee

to 15 cents, I'll just have to drink mine at home.



* If they think I'll pay 50 cents for a haircut, forget it. I'll

have my wife learn to cut hair.



* We won't be going out much anymore. Our babysitter informed us

she wants 50 cents an hour. Kids think money grows on trees.
