Just thought I’d post about the differences in expectations and lifestyle from when I was brought up to the present day.I’m just going to post about household goods and not services.
Draughty windows and doors.
Telephone. Often a shared line with your neighbour..
Black and white television.
Unreliable car built by Ford that would rust to scrap in five years or less.
Double sink with disposal unit.
Bathroom suite with shower
Computers and the internet.
42 inch colour TV and other smaller ones dotted around the household.
One or more cars.
Neither of these lists are extensive. I just thought that I’d show how much we have progressed in the last fifty years.
However we seem to have lost so much in the non materialistic side of things. I could go on at great length about how I miss the way of life in the past where manners were paramount and the individual looked after his own safety. However I’d be likely to bore you to tears, so I won’t.
Then again I might.
