You suddenly remember what a Telethon was and how it enthralled the nation and it seems like a new world. ; ).

When you were young, things were looking up.

 

 

 

When you're old, things are looking down ...'

You know you're old when you remember when  hire purchase  payback was in $$ per month rather than $$ per week.

You know you are old when you first went to Australia without needing a passport.

9:30 ? That's awfully late! tongue-out

 

 

 

You know you're old when you can remember when video rental stores were a relatively new novelty (and they rented out video tapes).

When you had a friend who bought a VHS top loader when they came out, at a paltry $3500, and spent $500 to upgrade the 5 mile remote CORD with a IR remote. Gross that back to the purchasing power of $4000 in those days. In fact I just will. RBNZ calculator, tells me that $4000 in say 1985 is equivalent to $11,038 in todays money.

You know you're old when you preferred amber monitors to green monitors (pretty much the only two choices back in the day).

That's not old. You know you're old when you didn't have the choice of amber monitors.

Gosh, I can remember the old Noel Leemings store in Ashburton hiring out movies on VHS and BetaMAX tapes! I think they did that pre-video stores appearing.
