A quote you often hear is “the only constant in life is change” and it’s never been more accurate than today.
Ironically the quote is credited to a Greek professor who lived from 535 BC to 475 BC.I guess there was a lot of change in those days as well. Times they are a changing and here are some of the things WalletPop says are vanishing from America. There is some real nostalgia here:
Cash Registers That Make a Ka-Ching Sound
Alleys (for those who grew up in cities)
Charcoal (although I love that Kingsford TV commercial where the guy wakes up from a long winter without grilling).
Neighborhood kids who will do odd jobs (from shoveling snow to mowing your lawn).
Cars with manual shifts
Companies that match your 401K contributions.
Movie Rental Stores
Cameras that use film
Drive-in Movie Theatres (there were once around 4,000…now 357)
The Yellow Pages
By the way, talk about vanishing do you remember Paine-Webber, Eastern Airlines, RCA, Adelphia Cable, EF Hutton, Burger Chef, TWA, Standard Oil, Montgomery Ward and FW Woolworth?
