    Had to share this as some of us are a little aged now and I found this funny as hell...
     
     Checking out at the store, the young cashier suggested to the much older woman, that she should bring her own grocery bags because plastic bags weren't good for the environment.
    <div><div> 

    </div></div><div><div>� The woman apologized and explained, "We didn't have this 'green thing' back in my earlier days."
    � The young clerk responded, "That's our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment for future generations."
    � She was right -- our generation didn't have the 'green thing' in its day.


    � Back then, we returned milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over.� So they really were recycled.
    � But we didn't have the "green thing" back in our day.


    � Grocery stores bagged our groceries in brown paper bags, that we reused for numerous things, most memorable besides household garbage bags, was the use of brown paper bags as book covers for our schoolbooks. This was to ensure that public property, (the books provided for our use by the school) was not defaced by our scribblings.
    � Then we were able to personalize our books on the brown paper bags.


    </div></div><div><div> 

    </div></div><div><div>� But too bad we didn't do the "green thing" back then.�
     
    We walked up stairs, because we didn't have an escalator in every store and office building. We walked to the grocery store and didn't climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time we had to go two blocks.
    But she was right. We didn't have the "green thing" in our day.


    Back then, we washed the baby's diapers because we didn't have the throwaway kind. We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy-gobbling machine burning up 220 volts -- wind and solar power really did dry our clothes back in our early days. Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing.� But that young lady is right; we didn't have the "green thing" back in our day.

    Back then, we had one TV, or radio, in the house -- not a TV in every room. And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief (remember them?), not a screen the size of the state of Montana . In the kitchen, we blended and stirred by hand because we didn't have electric machines to do everything for us. When we packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, we used wadded up old newspapers to cushion it, not Styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap. Back then, we didn't fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cu t the lawn. We used a push mower that ran on human power. We exercised by working so we didn't need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity.
    � But she's right; we didn't have the "green thing" back then.


    � We drank from a fountain when we were thirsty instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time we had a drink of water. We refilled writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and we replaced the razor blades I n a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull.
    � But we didn't have the "green thing" back then.


    � Back then, people took the streetcar or a bus and kids rode their bikes to school or walked instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour taxi service in the family's $45,000 SUV or van, which cost what a whole house did before the "green thing." We had one electrical o utlet in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances. And we didn't need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 23,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest burger joint.

    � But isn't it sad the current generation laments how wasteful we old folks were just because we didn't have the "green thing" back then?

  2. If some old lady said all that and I was behind her I would tell her to shut up shes holding up the line

    Thanks for posting that in the large type...as I couldn't find my glasses....
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
    oops, they were on top of my head...... :laughing:
     
  4. We don't like being old in the first place, so it doesn't take much to piss us off... Especially from a tattooed, multiple pierced smartass who can't make change without the cash register telling them how much.
     
    I am old and I am a tattooed, multiple pierced and a smartass. I recycle my spent vape into peanut butter cookies. 
     
  5. What the hell does this have to with smoking weed? There is a general sub-forum here, btw.
     
  6.  
    rather read this than the rest of the noobie threads in the "seasoned tokers" section..
     
  7.  
    lmao....
     
    I also have a tat and piercing, that wasn't the point nor my words....
     
     
    It has more to do with being aged, as a seasoned toker is, thanks for letting me know about a general area though, Ill check with you next time I want to start a topic....:)
     
  8. I remember cleaning up my neighborhood by collecting bottles out of ditches to trade them in for a soda. And when it was empty....it didn't go in the trash. It went right back into a ditch. It wasn't littering, it was paying it forward for the next guy.

    c'mon man..
     
    make a thread titled "what do you do when high"
    or "favorite movie when high"..
    or my favorite "how do i tell my mom i smoke weed"
    that's what belongs in here..
     
  10. Ops a fake. Hes not the real yoda. Look how hes talking in his post. Dont believe his green nonsense and just smoke it.
     
  11. rather see this post then another "mom caught me" thread
     
  12.  
    best answer for that was given by me.... "Happened to me too, I was like "MOM!..don't just stand there....... Say something dirty. :ey: ..""
     
  13.  
    Hmmm, Insult him you have not...but watch you he will.
     
  14. Don't be a douchebag because you don't want to admit you're incorrect. If every user would just pay attention to detail, and not be pricks when somebody challenges them, this website would SOO much better. And this sub forum isn't about being aged or whatever. It's about smoking weed. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Either way, this whole seasoned vs apprentice smokers sections thing is just stupid, IMO.
     
  15.  
     Did you happen to notice that green text under YODA's name....the text that reads...

    SUPER MODERATOR
     
    Next take a look under yours and it will soon say

    Shit in your own cornflakes you did!
    Eat it yourself you will!
     
    May the Force have mercy on your soul...............
     
  16. I misunderstood the title but still a good read

    I understand what you're saying, but then shouldn't the MOD's be expected to follow the rules, just like the rest of us? I mean, it just makes sense... Or maybe they're not rules- just guidelines, and I've been doing it wrong all along. Who knows? I'm just trying to bring common sense and logic into this message board, but if people want to take everything as an insult... Have fun, I guess. Apparently we're still in high school...
     
  18. the sad thing is, im not even old and i can relate to this.
     
    how does this not belong in the seasoned tokers section?
    considering some older tokers have been smoking since before you were born...
     
  19.  
    Ummm, Hello Pot, this is Kettle................HELLO. What was it that BROKE the rules. It was a good post, and it was posted in "seasoned tokers" because it was a post for us old timers. But I guess you wouldn't understand that. And the fact you can't even just stop defending the indefensible......and instead want to go on and on with some diatribe about whatever? Dude...you are wrong. You should just apologize. It's one thing to bust another blades balls about dumb shit. But the Moderators are doing a job. And a DAMN FINE job at that. You want me to come to your job and act like a jerk to you? No, you wouldn't. Give the dude some respect, and show a little more tact and poise in the future.....if you have one here that is. Decorum goes a long way with blades, and you ain't showing any.
     
     Major fail dude. MAJOR FAIL!

    Last time I checked, "Seasoned Tokers" was specifically about the act of smoking weed, but geared towards older or more experienced individuals, rather than lesser experienced smokers... Not about being old in general. It says it right there on the forum description. But shit, maybe other people interpret that differently... Maybe it should be more clear. Oooorrrrr... The whole system should be ditched and replaced with one "smoking" subforum. Too easy, so simple, less confusion, and no hierarchy bullshit between "apprentice" and "seasoned" smokers.

    And by the way, have you seen most of these threads? It's as if idiots don't pay attention to detail and just post whatever they want here, without limit to their redundancy. For example, every other thread I see is a "Will I pass a drug test?" or "How much should ... cost?" or "What music do you listen to while high?" thread, even though there are obvious permanent threads that cover the exact questions that everyfuckingperson just has to ask. So it's not the moderators, it's the users.

    And could do me a solid? Cut the cheesy jokes.
