How Did I Get So Old?


Can you feel me?

Boomers – bought stamps for 5¢. “Wait, we don’t have to lick them anymore?”

Gen-X – bought stamps for 18¢. “Remember you must lick ’em, lick ’em good!”

Millennials – bought stamps for 34¢. “You used to lick stamps? Why?”

Gen-Z – Q. “What’s a stamp?” A. “It goes on a letter.” Q. “What’s a letter?”

    Ha! I’m so old Mitch that I can remember when stamps were only 5 cents! I also remember dreaming of when I would turn 18 and “be on my own”. Be careful what you wish for!!

    Haha! I know. I haven’t bought stamps in forever. And they were “forever” stamps, too! Also, we might add, “What’s a ‘check?'”
