Some of the quotes I remember: "I'll tell ya one thing, if things keep going the way they are it's going to be impossible to buy a week's groceries for $20." "Have you seen the new cars coming out next year? It won't be long before $2,000 will only buy a used one." "if cigarettes keep going up in price, I'm going to quit. A quarter a pack is ridiculous." (I can actually remember paying 7 cents a pack on a troop ship headed to Korea, no state or federal tax once you are in international waters.) "Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging a dime just to mail a letter." "if they raise the minimum wage to $1. nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store." (My first job was 35 cents an hour.) "When I first started driving who would have thought gas would someday cost 29 cents a gallon. Guess we'd be better off leaving the car in the garage." (I can remember gas at 11 cents a gallon during the gas wars in OK and TX.) "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 that every new movie has either "hell" or "damn" in it." "Did you see where some baseball player just signed a contract for $75,000 a year just to play baseball? It wouldn't suprise me if someday they'll be making more than the president." "I'm afraid the Volkswagen car is going to open the door to a whole lot of foreign business." "There is no sense going on vacation anymore. It costs nearly $15 a night to stay in a hotel." "No one can afford to be sick anymore, $35 a day in the hospital is too rich for my blood." "If they think I'll pay 50 cents for a haircut, forget it." (I can remember 15 cent haircuts, my mom use to give me a quarter and I could keep the change.) Saved the best for the last: "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."
