The mention of Prince Albert in a can brings back some youthful memories of telephone pranking.
We’d call the local tobacco shops or jiffy stores and ask them if they had Prince Albert in a can, if they answered yes we would respond “would you please let him out” and slam the phone down!
They caught on quickly and it only worked a few times but it was considered radical juvenile delinquent behavior back in my junior high days...
In that period of time in the summer we walked through the neighborhood with our old lawnmower looking for yard work jobs and in the winter carried our snow shovels looking for snow removal jobs.
There are no neighborhood kids that do the random snow shoveling jobs anymore, I can’t get around good anymore and I’m always hoping for that knock on the door before I have to go out and do it myself!
