Back in our day we played outside-not online, mom let us drive on her lap on the highway, and dad threw us in the pool to teach us how to swim.
Slacker says parenting now is not even in the wheel house of parenting when they were kids. He remembers when he learned how to ride a bike his parents just put him on the bike without training wheels and if he fell or anything they would just try it the next week. He remembers driving down the highway with his dad on his lap and they weren’t wearing a seat belt. Slacker said he was reading the warning label on a toaster and someone must have put the toaster in a sink at some point because they warning label read: Do Not Put in Water. Are people stupid? Back in the day if he had to tell his friend something he would drive to a gas station and use the phone booth to call people. He also mentions that the planes had smoking sections. So gross!
Steve says when he was a kid he was climbing all over the seats and playing while driving. He also mentions that when they were kids they got to ride in the bed of pickup trucks. Steve said that back in the day there were no warning labels on anything. Back in the day on the school bus people could hang out in the aisle of the bus and walk around.
What did you do back in your day that you couldn’t get away with today?
My mom would let us jump from the roof of our house onto our trampoline. It was awesome!
