You don't see teens sprawled across the hoods of their cars anymore. That was a very popular place to kick back.

And you just don't see people cutting their jeans and turning them into jorts (jean shorts). Now, they are bought that way.

Who pulls out a back-pocket comb anymore for a few whisks through the hair nowadays? It might happen, but nowhere near as often.

Littering was so bad in the 70's that we needed a massive national campaign against it. It was very common (and didn't enrage many people) to just see someone toss out their McDonalds or Burger King trash right out the car window. A big deal to very few.

Seems like going door to door and offering to shovel snow (or cut lawns) for a few bucks took a nose dive after the 1970's.
