Back in the 80's!!

Some of this is just too true...poor us that grew up in he 80's haha!!!!

When I was a kid ...adults used to bore me to tears with their tedious
diatribes about how hard things were when they were growing up.

What with walking twenty-five miles to school every morning uphill both
ways through year 'round blizzards carrying their younger siblings on their
backs to their one-room schoolhouse where they maintained a straight-A

Despite their full-time after-school job at the local textile mill where
they worked for 35 cents an hour just to help keep their family from
starving to death!

And I remember promising myself that when I grew up there was no way in
hell I was going to lay a bunch of crap like that on kids about how hard I
had it and how easy they've got it!

But...Now that I've *sigh* am almost into my 30's , I can't help but look around
and notice the youth of today.

You've ..got .it. so.frigen'. easy!

I mean, compared to my childhood, you live in a goddamned Utopia!

I mean, when I was a kid we didn't have The Internet-we wanted to know
something, we had to go to the library and look it up ourselves!

And there was no email! We had to actually write somebody a letter. WITH A PEN!!

and then you had to walk all the way across the street and put it in the
frickin' mailbox .
and it would take like a week to get there!

And there were no MP3s or Napsters!
You wanted to steal music, you had to go to the record store and shoplift
it yourself!

>Or we had to wait around all day to tape it off the radio and the DJ'd
>usually talk over the beginning and f*** it all up!

You want to hear about hardship? You couldn't just "download" porn!
You had to bribe some dude to buy you a copy of "Hustler" at the
It was either that or jack off to the lingerie section of the Sears
Those were your options!

We didn't have fancy ***** like Call Waiting!
If you were on the phone and somebody else called they
got a busy signal!

And we didn't have fancy Caller ID Boxes either! When the phone rang, you
had no frickin' idea who it was.

it could be your boss, your mom, a collections agent, your drug dealer,
you didn't know!!!

You just had to pick it up and take your chances!

And we didn't have any new age Sony Playstation videogames with
high-resolution 3-D graphics!
We had the Atari 2600 and Comodore 64!

With games like "Space Invaders" and "Asteroids" .and the graphics sucked
Your guy was a little friggen' square!
You had to use your imagination!

And there were no multiple levels or screens; it was just one screen

And you could never win, the game just kept getting harder and faster until
you died!

Just like LIFE!

When you went to the movie theater there was no such thing as stadium

All the seats were the same god darn height!

IF a tall guy sat in front of you. you were screwed!

And sure, we had cable television, but back then that was only like 13
channels and there was no onscreen menu!

You had to use a little ****ty book called a TV Guide to find out what was

And there was no Cartoon Network! You could only get cartoons on Saturday
morning... ...D'ya hear what I'm saying!?!

We had to wait ALL WEEK, you spoiled little brats!!!

That's exactly what I'm talking about!

You kids today have got it too easy.

You're spoiled, I swear to God!

You guys wouldn't last five minutes back in 1989!
