THIS KIND OF STUFF HAS GOT TO STOP IN OUR COUNTRY! People of our
generation have got to stick together and end this discrimination!
We Must Stop This Immediately!
Have you noticed that stairs are getting steeper . Groceries are
heavier . And, everything is farther away. Yesterday I walked to the
corner and I was dumbfounded to discover how long our street has
become! This extension work was apparently done at night !! Very
And, you know, people are less considerate now, especially the
youngsters. They speak in whispers all the time! If you ask them to
speak up they just keep repeating themselves, endlessly mouthing the
same silent message until they're red in the face! What do they think I
am, a lip reader?
I also think they are much younger than I was at the same age. On
the other ha nd, people my own age are so much older than I am. I ran
into an old friend the other day, and she has aged so much that she
didn't even recognize me.
I got to thinking about the poor dear while I was combing my hair
this morning, and in doing so, I glanced at my own reflection
........Well, REALLY NOW- even mirrors are not made the way they used to be!
Another thing, everyone drives so fast these days! You're risking
life and limb if you happen to pull onto the freeway in front of them.
All I can say is, their brakes must wear out awfully fast, the way I see
them screech and swerve in my rear view mirror.
Clothing manufacturers are less civilized these days. Why else
would they suddenly start labeling a size 32 pair of pants a 42, or
medium shirt as 'extra large? Do they think no one notices that these
things no longer fit around the waist, hips, thighs, and neck ?
The people who make bathroom scales are pulling the same prank,
but in reverse. Do they think I actually "believe" the number I see on
that dial? Heck ! I would never let myself weigh that much! Just who
do these people think they're fooling?
I'd like to call up someone in authority to report what's going
on -- but the telephone company is in on the conspiracy too: they've
printed the phone books in such small type that no one could ever find a
number in there!
All I can do is pass along this warning: We are under attack!
Unless something drastic happens, pretty soon everyone will have to
suffer these awful indignities. PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO EVERYONE YOU
KNOW AS SOON AS POSSIBLE SO WE CAN GET THIS CONSPIRACY STOPPED!
PS: I am sending this to you in a larger font size, because
something has caused my computer's regular fonts to be smaller than they
once were. (They must be sneaking to my house and messing around with
my computer. Probably CIA....!!!) Pretty scary stuff huh
