In the line at the store, the cashier told an older woman that she should bring her own grocery bags because plastic bags weren't good for the environment.

The woman apologized to him and explained, "We didn't have the green thing back in my day."

The clerk responded, "That's our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment." He was right -- our generation didn't have the green thing in its day.

Back then, we returned milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over. So they really were recycled. But we didn't have the green thing back in our day.

We walked up stairs, because we didn't have an escalator in every store and office building. We walked to the grocery store and didn't climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time we had to go two blocks. But he was right. We didn't have the green thing in our day.

Back then, we washed the baby's diapers because we didn't have the throw-away kind. We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy gobbling machine burning up 220 volts -- wind and solar power really did dry the clothes. Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing. But that old lady is right; we didn't have the green thing back in our day.

Back then, we had one TV, or radio, in the house -- not a TV in every room. And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief (remember them?), not a screen the size of the state of Montana

In the kitchen, we blended and stirred by hand because we didn't have electric machines to do everything for us.

When we packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, we used a wadded up old newspaper to cushion it, not Styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap.

Back then, we didn't fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the lawn. We used a push mower that ran on human power. We exercised by working so we didn't need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity. But he's right; we didn't have the green thing back then.

We drank from a fountain when we were thirsty instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time we had a drink of water. We refilled writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and we replaced the razor blades in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull. But we didn't have the green thing back then.

Back then, people took the streetcar or a bus and kids rode their bikes to school or walked instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour taxi service.

We had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances. And we didn't need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 2,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest pizza joint.

But isn't it sad the current generation laments how wasteful we old folks were just because we didn't have the green thing back then.

well, women are wired to be caring, nurture and compassion like a luxury car and men are made like a truck. A mistake us women make is being on a quest to turn a truck into a car...is like setting ourselve up for disappointment.

I remember in the 80's when my dad and his buddies would sit around and watch wrestling. Hulk vs Andre the Giant etc...

Andre = Ong Bay in Laotian.

If you are old DON'T Read this


I read this joke in Thai, it's something like this:

There were three bats living in the same cave, there's a young one, then there's one in the middle age, and the elderly one.

One day the young one decided to go hunt on his own to see if he can get any blood, he's gone for a very long time and came back with nothing.

Then the middle age one thinks he can do better than the young one, he left and was gone longer than the young one and came back with nothing.

Then the elderly said "I will show you how's it's done", he left and in a little while he fly back with his mouth full of blood. Wow, the young one and middle age one was excited how can he done that so fast, so, they decided to ask "how did you do that?" Elderly one answer "did you see that big tree over there? " they both answer "YES", elderly one "well, I didn't".



That's my story .
