When I was 10

When I was 10 most people who were retired told me that once I reached their age there would be much more leisure time and people would only be working a few days a week as most of the work would be done by robots, well I guess they were right as many people are working a few days a week or even less but the thing they did not take into consideration was that people would only be paid for the hours they worked and without money leisure time may not be leisure at all.
If you are retired can you remember similar things that adults told you at the time .?

When I was in my early twenties I shaved about once a fortnight. I was always told that by the time I'm 45 I'll be shaving twice a day. Still waiting...

Nope - when I was that age most people didn't live much beyond 65
Also I lived in a rural village at that time and the workers didn't even think about automation of the farms

On my 10th birthday the Americans still hadn't dropped atomic bombs on Japan.
