    What happened since 1955?

    Comments made in 1955 ....

    Iíll tell you one thing, if thingskeep going the way they are, it's going
    to be impossible to buy a week's groceries for R10.00.

    Have you seen the new cars coming out next year? It won't be long before R2,000.00 will only buy a used one.

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

    Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging 4 cents just to mail a letter.

    If they raise the minimum wage to R1.00, nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store.

    When I first started driving, who would have thought petrol would someday cost 20 cents a litre. 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 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 R2.00 a night to stay in a hotel.

    No one can afford to be sick anymore. At R15.00 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.

    Well, I was not around yet in 1955, but I remember when I was about 7 or 8 year old (in 1979) a bread used to cost only 15cents...!
    always fear when Christel is near....

    Excellence is not a skill; its an attitude...
