OLD TIMER TELLS NSFs – “YOU KNOW LAST TIME MY NS PAY ONLY $50, YOU ALL VERY LUCKY”

Do you know last time my NS pay only 50$? You are very lucky now.

I can’t stand people saying that we are lucky now because we are paid 600 and above.

When it’s the same people telling us that things are so expensive now while reminiscing about the past when 1 bowl of noodles was 1 dollar LOL.

If you do the math, we are getting paid, on average the same as they did last time based on how strong the money was last time

Netizens’ comments

  • Yes, last time food so cheap, u can’t compare last time to now, last time $50 can buy a lot of stuff, now $50 buy what? Gst now 8% going to 9% soon
  • Now I need to pay $1.5 to buy milo for my buddy.
  • All those old boomers always use their circumstances to undermine ours. Different times, different cost of living.
    They always gonna make it seem they have it harder. Ignore them, they have no better advice, that’s why they say such things.
    Makes them look tougher but it’s all just ego.
  • My girlfriend taught me a comeback for these kinds of boomers.
    “Yea but back in the day, you can afford a 5-room flat with like 2 raspberries.”
  • The counter is telling the person what their pay would be now with inflation.
    I earn $20 less than a random encik during his time. And it wasn’t even 10 years ago that he enlisted. Lol it shut him up about it.
  • I heard last time ippt still pays around the same as now though, so if anything we are losing out more, let me know if I am wrong
  • I think they are trying to make us feel better. The absolute amount does make someone feel better even though in real terms there is no change. LOL.
    For example, you have 50k sgd but if you convert to baht, you are a millionaire in Thailand. Actually bad example cos things are cheaper in Thailand. You get the point.
  • I suppose and you guys do have a point about how times were different back then and how the pay now may not be as big of an increase from last time if you take things like inflation into account. But for those in the older gen, let’s cut them a bit slack as some of those that I hear this from were genuinely nice guys who just want to make you feel better. I know it varies from person to person but for those who are genuinely nice, we shouldn’t ridicule them as they mean well but they just lack perspective.
