‘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.

‘Have  you seen the new cars coming out next  year?   It  won’t be long before $2,000.00 will only buy a used  one.

Which change would you most like to reverse?


‘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 29 cents a  gallon. Guess  we’d be better off leaving the car in the  garage.

‘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 .

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 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.

I’m  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 Lincoln or Omaha anymore  for a weekend, it  costs nearly $15.00 a night to stay in a  hotel.

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

If  they think I’ll pay 50 cents for a hair cut, forget  it.’
