Grandmom is HOW old?

I got this in the office the other day.  Do you think they were trying to tell me something?

We've seen a lot in our day!..................Yes we have!!
How old is Grandma?
(Read this to the end-- quite an eye opener.)

Stay with this -- the answer is at the end... It will blow you away.

One evening a grandson was talking to his grandmother
About current events.

The grandson asked his grandmother what she thought
About the shootings at schools, the computer age, and
Just things in general.

The Grandmother replied, "Well, let me think a minute,

I was born before:

polio shots
frozen foods
contact lenses
Frisbees and
the pill

There were no:

credit cards
laser beams or
ball-point pens

Man had not
yet invented:

air conditioners
clothes dryers
and the clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air and
man hadn't yet walked on the moon

 Your Grandfather and I got married first, and then lived together. Every family had a father and a mother.

Until I was 25, I called every man
older than me, "Sir."

And after I turned 25, I still called
policemen and every man
a title, "Sir."

We were before gay-rights,
computer-dating, dual careers, daycare centers, and group therapy.

Our lives were governed by the Ten
Commandments, good judgment, and common sense.

We were taught to know the
difference between right and
and to stand up and take responsibility for our actions.

Serving your country was a privilege; living
in this country was
A bigger privilege.

We thought fast food was what people
ate during Lent.

Having a meaningful relationship
meant getting along with
Your cousins.

Draft dodgers were those who closed front
doors as the
Evening breeze started.

Time-sharing meant time the family
spent together in the
and weekends — not purchasing condominiums.

We never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CD's, electric typewriters, yogurt, or guys wearing earrings.

We listened to Big Bands, Jack Benny,
and the President's speeches on our radios.

If you saw anything with 'Made in Japan '
on it, it was junk.

The term 'making out' referred to how
you did on your school exam.

Pizza Hut, McDonald's,
and instant coffee were unheard of.
We had 5 &10-cent (5 and dime) stores where you could actually buy things for 5 and 10 cents.

Ice-cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar,
and a Pepsi were all a nickel.

And if you didn't want to splurge, you could
spend your nickel on enough stamps to mail 1 letter and 2 postcards.

You could buy a new Ford Coupe for $600,
but who could
Afford one? Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon.

In my day:

"grass" was mowed,
"coke" was a cold drink,
"pot" was something your mother cooked in and
"rock music" was your grandmother's lullaby.
"Aids" were helpers in the Principal's office,
"chip" meant a piece of wood,
"hardware" was found in a hardware store and.
"software" wasn't even a word.

We were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a husband to have a baby.
We volunteered to protect our precious country.
No wonder people call us "old and confused" and say there is a generation gap.
How old do you think I am?

Read on to see -- pretty scary if you think about it and pretty sad at the same time.

Are you ready?????

This woman would be only 59 years old.She would have been born in late 1952.



So are you one of the "old ones" or one of the "young ones"?
Do you believe it?
