My parents my whole childhood:

What are you *** doing in front of that screen?!?!
Stop playing GAMES and go out and do something with your life!
You are WASTING your LIFE on ****!
You will NEVER get a job.

Today I am payed more than 20th times as my dad was payed in my age.
They finally stopped complaining.

    It was the opposite for us. My mother never wanted us to go out and as a result I have barely any outdoor hobbies.

    inflation, but it is only 2% here.

    @Linux 2% per year is still somewhere around 14 times as much 40 years ago as it is now, though, if my math is anywhere close to right...

    (Estimated (1.02^15-1)*40)
