How Old is Grandma??
Today, some fun:
How old is Grandma??? I think you will be surprised!
Stay with this — the answer is at the end…
One evening a grandson was talking to his grandmother about current events.
The grandson asked his grandmother what she thought about the shootings at schools, the computer age, and just things in general.
The Grandma replied, “Well, let me think a minute, I was born before:
- frozen foods
- photocopier machines
- contact lenses
- credit cards
- ball-point pens
- air conditioners
- clothes dryers, the clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air and
- man hadn’t yet walked on the moon
Your Grandfather and I got married first, . . and then lived together.Every family had a father and a mother.Until I was 25, I called every man older than me, “Sir”.
And after I turned 25, I still called policemen and every man with a title, “Sir.”We were before computer- dating, dual careers, daycare centers, and group therapy.Our lives were governed by the Ten Commandments, good judgment, and common sense.
We were taught to know the difference between right and wrong and to stand up and take responsibility for our actions.
We thought fast food was what people ate during Lent.
We had never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CDs, electric typewriters, yogurt, or guys wearing earrings.
- “grass” was mowed,
- “coke” was a cold drink,
- “pot” was something your mother cooked in and
- “rock music” was your grandmother’s lullaby.
- “Aids” were helpers in the Principal’s office,
- “hardware” was found in a hardware store and
- “software” wasn’t even a word.
Pizza Hut, McDonald’s, and instant coffee were unheard of.
We had 5 &10-cent stores where you could actually buy things for 5 and 10 cents.
Ice-cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar, and a Pepsi were all 5 cents.
And if you didn’t want to splurge, you could spend your 5 cents on enough stamps to mail 1 letter and 2 postcards.
You could buy a new car for $600, . . . but who could afford one?
Too bad, because petrol was 11 cents a litre.
No wonder people call us “old and confused” and say there is a generation gap… and how old do you think I am?
I bet you have a very old lady in mind…you are in for a shock!
This Woman would be only 58 years old!
Times change quickly!
