They just don't build em like they use too.
This use to be only three dollars.
I can remember when.
People just don't act the same now days. (hmm?)
Where Have their manners gone?
What is happening to this place.
Man, I could go on and on but I won't. I was just kickin around things in my mind and started thinking about all this stuff, so what the hell, why not get it outta my head and into yours, LOL.
Houses just are not built like they use to be.
The old house had outside toilets that people would tip over, they were drafty and cold in the winter and a hot house in the summer. The plumbing was just coming into existence, so most of the joint leaked under the sinks and rotted out the floors.
Electricity, man they used these old wires that frayed easily, you ever been into an attic of an old house? The wiring looks like it was made with fur balls and spider webs.
The windows were thin sheets of glass, and they were always stuck.
The floors were cool though, solid wood floors, very pretty but seldom if ever insulated, so in the winter it felt like you were walking on a sheet of ice, if you were bare footed.
THANK GOD, they don't build houses like they use too.
Ever seen an attic fan, cool, oh yeah, practical, not hardly. I will take my central heat and air unit any day.
So what do you think?
Were things better back when? What do you think was better and why? Tell me, no better yet tell us all.
I am a firm believer that not only are things better, but they are getting even more so every day.
List your answer in the comment section.
