PostStuff you had as a kid that they don't do anymore.....
by Death's Head » Tue Apr 10, 2018 11:31 pm

Whilst in a supermarket today I saw the World Cup Panini stickers and started reminiscing about the stickers I really liked as a kid. I fondly remember "Wanted" stickers. These came in packs with a bubblegum (which I wasn't too fussed about) and although there was no book to collect them in, you would still swap them with your friends trying to get a complete set. Each one had some generic person (such as "The Teacher", "The Sister", "The School Snitch") and a small uncomplimentary write up. I used to stick them on my bedroom door in the 70s which my dad was not very happy about!

What things from your childhood do you fondly remember and how many of you on here had the wanted stickers? (I'm guessing there is maybe half a dozen forum members who know about the Wanted stickers).Image

Porno mags in bushes.

I used to have small figurines that I used to play with, usually I'd wrap up a bit of tinfoil into a football shape and have the figurines play football.

The power of imagination would probably be my answer to this thread question.

Lego thst required your imagination rather than most of the pieces being specially moulded and stickered to look exactly like something.

A backbone and the ability not to be offended by absolutely everything

Oh, and Fuse bars.

My youthful optimism, rather than the cynical borderline nihilism that I have now.

That is only 30 days. You have Friday off every week so 52 days. You've never had it so good!

I don’t have Fridays off anymore. I have Mondays instead. 8-)

As I work compressed hours, I don’t actually get any extra time off even if my weekends are longer.

I work compressed hours without the day off in exchange FML. Did you choose Monday over Friday? Surely you lose out due to more Mondays being public holidays.
