Received via email, thanks Nikki, got a good chuckle out of this one =)

If you are 30 or older you will think this is hilarious!!!!
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… Barefoot… 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 my 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!
And I hate to say it, but you kids today, you don’t know how good you’ve got

mean, 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 catalogue!!

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!  Stamps were 10 cents!

Protective Services didn’t care if our parents beat us.  As a matter of
fact, the parents of all my friends also had permission to kick our
ass! Nowhere was safe!

were no MP3′ s or Napsters!  If you wanted to steal music, you had to
hitchhike to the damn record store and shoplift it yourself!

you had to wait around all day to tape it off the radio, and the DJ
would usually talk over the beginning and @#*% it all up!  There were
no CD players!  We had tape decks in our car.  We’d play our favorite
tape and "eject" it when finished, and the tape would come undone..
 Cause – that’s how we rolled, dig?

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!

weren’t any freakin’ cell phones either. If you left the house, you
just didn’t make a damn call or receive one. You actually had to be out
of touch with your "friends". OH MY GOD !!!  Think of the horror..  And
then there’s TEXTING .  yeah  , right.  You kids have no idea how
annoying you are.

we didn’t have fancy Caller ID 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
the Atari 2600!  With games like ‘Space Invaders’ and ‘Asteroids’.
 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!

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!  NO REMOTES!!!

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 rat-bastards!

And we didn’t have microwaves.  If we wanted to heat something up, we had to use the stove! Imagine that!
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
or before!
