    If you are 30 or older you will think this is funny....

    When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears with their tedious
    stories about how hard things were when they were growing up; What with
    walking twenty-five miles to school every morning ... Uphill BOTH ways.
    Yadda, yadda, yadda 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'm over the ripe old age of thirty, I can't help but look
    around and notice the youth of today.

    You've got it so easy. I mean, compared to my childhood, you live in a
    damn Utopia. When I was a kid we didn't have the Internet. If we
    wanted to know something, we had to go to the damn library and look it
    up ourselves, in the card catalog. And it never failed - the book or
    magazine you needed was already checked out. There was no email. We
    had to actually write somebody a letter...with a pen. Then you had to
    walk all the way across the street and put it in the mailbox and it
    would take like a week to get there.

    There were no MP3's or Napsters. You wanted to steal music, you had to
    hitchhike to the damn record store and shoplift it yourself. Or you had
    to wait around all day to tape it off the radio and the DJ's usually
    talk over the beginning and @$%*@* it all up.

    We didn't have fancy crap like Call Waiting. If you were on the phone
    and somebody else called they got a Busy signal, that's it. And we
    didn't have fancy Caller ID Boxes either. When the phone rang, you had
    no idea who it was. It could be your school, your mom, your boss, your
    bookie, your drug dealer, a collections agent, you just didn't
    know...You had to pick it up and take your chances, mister.

    We didn't have any fancy Sony Playstation video games with
    high-resolution 3-D graphics.. We had the Atari 2600. With games like
    Space Invaders' and 'Asteroids' and the graphics sucked. Your guy was a
    little square. You actually had to use your imagination. And there were
    no multiple levels or screens; it was just one screen forever. And you
    could never win. The game just kept getting harder and harder and faster
    and faster until you died. Just like LIFE.

    When you went to the movie theater there was no such thing as stadium
    seating.. All the seats were the same height. If a tall guy or some old
    broad with a hat sat in front of you and you couldn't see, you were just

    Sure, we had cable television, but back then that was only like
    15 channels and there was no on screen menu and no remote control. You
    had to use a little book called a TV Guide to find out what was on. You
    were screwed when it came to channel surfing. You had to get off your
    ass and walk over to the TV to change the channel and there was no
    Cartoon Network either. You could only get cartoons on Saturday morning.
    Do you hear what I'm saying? We had to wait ALL WEEK for cartoons, you
    spoiled little bastards. And we didn't have microwaves, if we wanted
    to heat something up we had to use the stove or go build a frigging fire
    ... imagine that. If we wanted popcorn, we had to use that stupid
    Jiffy Pop thing and shake it over the stove forever like an idiot.
    That's exactly what I'm talking about. You kids today have got it too
    easy. You're spoiled.......You guys wouldn't have lasted five minutes
    back in 1980.

    LOL. I'm not over 30 either and I can relate too! I think sometimes about how much of a different experience my brother (who's only 6 years younger than me) has had with the internet. "In my day we had to wait weeks for our college acceptance letters to be mailed instead of checking continuously online!" etc, etc...
