Friends used to drop in unannounced for coffee and a short visit. Today an invitation or at least a phone call is required!

Dogs used to run free. Today they must be tied, walked on a leash and only allowed to run free in a dog park!
Deals used to be made with a handshake. Today a signed contract is required.

Prices have skyrocketed. A candy bar used to be a nickle. Today it’s almost a dollar. Gas used to be .25 a gallon. Today its over $3.00 a gallon… and sometimes over $4.00!
I babysat, as a kid, for 25 cents an hour. Today it’s more like $3.00 an hour.

Guys used to walk on the outside of the sidewalk when with a girl, opening the door letting a girl or woman go in first and opening the car door for a date. Today guys walk on the in-side, let a girl or woman open her own door. Little or no respect is shown.
Men always removed their hats when they entered a building. Today many men wear their hats inside, even during a worship service!
Folks used to take pride in their looks. Today many feel it’s okay to look scrubby, no matter where they are. Dress codes must be utilized by businesses to keep a decent appearance.
