The era in which we grow up shapes us forever. Technology is second nature to most young people, while many older people were raised to expect different things from life. Here are a few things that only those over a certain age would understand: like the “Milk Man!” If you remember the ‘milk man’ and telephone operators, you will get a kick out of these flashbacks to way back when…
Sounds funny to say ‘back in the olden days’….when for people my age, we clearly remember these things!
Having one phone, connected to a wall, located in the hall of a 1,300-square-foot house with two parents and two children.
Everyone who was lucky enough to have a television, had just one and it was located in the living room.
A milk man driving the milk truck around delivering glass bottles of milk to your doorstep.
“Hello this is the operator.” Yep….you dialed ZERO and a real human answered and helped you make your call!
A typewriter. And most kids were required to take a typing class in school to learn the ‘keyboard’ by heart!
Watching your favorite TV shows at the exact time they were on, and there wasn’t any whatsoever to ‘record a show!’
Rotary dial telephone service…..long before the ‘modern push button model’ became an option.
An ice box, not a refrigerator.
Being able to play outside all day without having to check in with a cell phone — and your parents aren’t the least bit worried about it.
What are some other things that you clearly remember, yet your kids will never experience or understand?
