You know you’re a Boomer if….

 

√ …you ever used a rotary phone.

…friends call you at 9 pm and ask if you’re still up.

…you smoked a non-filter cigarette.

 

…you haven’t been carded since the Carter administration.

√  …you pay $20 for the $10 trim you got for $5 when you had hair (thanks to Senator Sam Ervin).

…the World Wide Web used to sound like a spider horror movie.

…global warming meant you left your light-up world globe on overnight.

…beehive was a hairdo, credit meant thanks, gay meant carefree, and queens were monarchs.

…most of your childhood pics show you in plaid clothing.

√ …your mother told you not to wear shinny patent leather shoes because boys could see your underpants in the reflection.
