Back in my day I had to walk 100 miles to school, the snow was 10 feet deep and when we got to school the teacher would beat us… make us dig our own graves and then kill us… … and candy bars were only a nickel!

Pet Peeves: Back In My Day…

  1. Bwahahahaha! I remember telling my children about my “childhood,” when they were expecting cars as soon as they turned 16 and it was the ultimate humiliation to ride the school bus.
    They never missed an opportunity to say “yeah, yeah, yeah. Mom had to walk ten miles to school in six feet of snow, uphill both ways, with a broken leg and a hole in her shoe.”
    Truth is….I actually did. Of course, it wasn’t uphill both ways and it was only about five miles but there were many days where the snow was almost up to my waist. Girls weren’t allowed to wear pants but at least one of my legs was warm…from the cast. Another boy broke his leg and his mama toted him to school in his wagon.
    Schools rarely closed for snow. Everybody had chains on their cars and it was just the way it was….colder than a witches’ tit in a brass bra, too.
    To us…it was normal. Everybody walked to school and I got to the place where I could flat fly on those crutches! LOL

    • LOL! Excellent! It was definitely much more rugged in the past. one of my cab drivers told me that he has a school pick up list of kids he takes to school everyday. I don’t think it would be possible to live that down even just a few years ago. LOL! Not to mention if I ever heard my mom say “Buffalo Tom your cab is here to take you to school” I would have fainted dead away!😁
