Remember when ??

Remember when

you could go through a yellow light and not get a $150.00 ticket in the mail**

you could go past a school with out kids outside @ 30 mph now you get a ticket in the mail for $150.00 for going over 20 mph 24 hours a day*

when we did not even have car seats in a car now it is a law to wear them or get a ticket no clue what that fee is

park on the street when more then 2" of snow or get towed and a huge fine [ it is a good idea so the trucks can plow ]
ok im done for now i feel better add on if you have some other odd things

Remember when there was lead in paint...mmmmmmm YUMMY.

Remember when the non-smoking section was a table away from the smoking section....DOUBLE YUMMY.

Remember when there were X-ray machines in shoe stores, to make sure you got the perfect fit.....Mommy, why are my feet glowing?



As for your first 2...I call shenanigans.

Remember when you could hop up your own car without the gubmint fining you?
Remember when you had a choice to wear seat belts or not?
Remember when you could ride in the back of a pickup truck down the road?
Remember when you could burn your leaves in your own yard?
Remember when you could smack your kid on the ass for wrong doing without child services knocking on your door?
Remember when you could eat a meal without worrying about what chemicals were in it?
Remember when you could park in your own driveway without the local municipality coming after you?
Remember when you could do your own home improvements without the nazi building department looking over your shoulder?

Remember when you had 3 channels available for
viewing television and not only was it black & white
but the picture quality was usually poor, yet there
was always something you wanted to watch?
