A collection of 1955 sayings! - FUN!

that was then....

They couldn't conceive any thing but,...what they got then

Who would've thought....

"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 $20.00!"

Now, how many quit since! or rather picked up smoking!

"If cigarettes keep going up in price, I'm going to quit. A quarter a pack is ridiculous!"

A letter or more,...what's adime anymore?

"Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging a dime just to mail a letter!"

Are we now complaining about the minimum wage? But them, poopr people!

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

GAs price is all over; nobody thought we will have so big cars to consume so much gas anyways!

"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!"

...and so much more lately....

"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!

and... this goes on!

Who else would make that kind of money?

"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!"

and lately that the case...

"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!"

We are getting there!

"Thank goodness I won't live to see the day when the Government takes half our income in taxes!"

People eat no matter of what the weather is !... Viva drive-through!

"The drive-in restaurant is convenient in nice weather, but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on!"

That's not even opening the door for you anymore!...

"There is no sense going anywhere for a weekend anymore, it costs nearly $15.00 a night to stay in a hotel!"

Watch what's todays dollar ammount to be 1 night in, that will have your blood presure go up!

"No one can afford to be sick anymore, at $35.00 a day in the hospital it's too rich for my blood!"

now the red -neck country might still have a problem with that!

"If they think I'll pay 50 cents for a hair cut, forget it!"

A star, for ever!
