1955 - 58 Years Ago...
 
  
       Comments  made in the year 1955!

I'll  tell you one thing, if things
 
keep  going the way they are, 
its going to  be impossible to 
buy a weeks  groceries for $10.00.


 

 
 

 



   
Have you seen the new  cars 
coming out next year?  It  won't 
be long before $1,000.00  will 
only buy a used one.


 

 
 
 


  
      

If  cigarettes keep going up in
 
price,  I'm going to quit; 20 cents 
a pack  is ridiculous. 


 

 
 
 

 


      

Did  you hear the post office is
 
thinking  about charging 7 cents 
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  more than 20 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 
$50,000 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're 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 
government. 


 

 
 


 
 
 


The  fast food restaurant is
 
convenient  for a quick meal, 
but I seriously  doubt they 
will ever catch  on. 


 

 
 
 


 
 

 

      

There  is no sense going on short
 
trips  anymore for a weekend.   It 
costs nearly $2.00 a night to  stay 
in a  motel. 


 

 
 

      

No  one can afford to be  sick
 
anymore.  At $15.00 a day  in 
the hospital, it's too rich  for 
my blood. 


 

 
 
 


 

      

If  they think I'll pay 30 cents
 
for a  haircut, forget it.
