Comments you (or your parents or grandparents) might have made in the year 1957:
 
  • "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 $5000 will 

  •    only buy 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, 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."
     
  • "Kids today are impossible.  Those duck tail hair cuts make it impossible to stay groomed.  

  •     Next thing you know, boys will be wearing their hair as long as the girls."
     
  • "I'm afraid to send my kids to the movies any more.  Ever since they let Clark Gable get by 

  •   with saying  the "d" word in 'Gone With The Wind,' it seems every new movie has either 
      the "h" word or the "d" 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 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."
     
  • "Marriage doesn't mean a thing any more; those Hollywood stars seem to be getting divorced 

  •   at the drop of a hat."
     
  • "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 Lincoln or Omaha anymore for a weekend.  It costs nearly $15 a 

  •    night to stay in a hotel."
     
  • "No one can afford to be sick any more; $35 a day in the hospital is too rich for my blood."  

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