For those who missed out:
Kid, dials grocery store down the block...Hello, do you have pigs feet?
Grocery man: Well, hold on, let me check.
Grocery man, comes back from checking and responds... Why yes, Miss I do.
Kid says...Well then, were in the hell do you buy your shoes?
Left us in stitches everytime..poor kids of today..no fun at all!
WE had our own gangs! THe GOOD kids and bad kids (not really bad just bullies) and the bad kids would make the good kids scream and run by yelling bad names at us such as "GENERAL ELECTRIC"! LOL! We would plug our ears and run home!!!!
My brother played with Army men and I worried he would become a fighter and buy guns. HE is the biggest pasifist I have ever known!
AS a child he and his friends had a game they played. They would call a number out of the phone book at random. When the person picked up the phone he and his friends would tell them they were phone repairmen working on the phone lines, and NOT to use the phone for so long as otherwise they would be electricuted. THEN they would call the people back and when the people would answer they would scream like they were dying. NOBODY called the police. Nobody seemed to mind!
WE had a TV but were always too busy to watch. AS a just out of my teens girl, I did not drve as I could go anywhere on a dime. When we moved to a non incorperated area there were no busses for about 2 miles so I hitchiked. ONe day I hitched a ride with 2 guys and I was in the back of a Van. Suddenly I started remembering all I had been warned about. Finally I became scared and asked to be let out at the corner. When I spoke up I scared them half to death. They not only had no intentions of harming me - they had forgotton I was even there!
