Top 10 ways to know you are getting old................

Postby pair8head » May 8, 2009 3:07 pm

I'll start with 3

1. You are on a first name basis with more Doctors then Bartenders.
2. Your favorite music can now be heard in elevators.
3. When you fart and blame the dog, nobody dares laugh.

Why would knowing your bartender make you old?

You know you are getting old when you can't program the electronics in your home and have to pay the kid up the street to do it for you.


Also when you hear yourself saying things like "turn that down" or "because I said so." All the things your parents said you to that you SWORE you woud never say to your own kids..


How about when you try on a pair of "old lady" shoes just to see what all the fuss is about and realize they are comfortable. Then you buy them in every color.... :)
well, ummmmmmm, yah, I guess I better come up with something witty to put in this spot since everyone is reading it.......

Preach it, sister! Amen and hallelujah! 8) 8) 8)

I just found some tennis shoes (do they still call them that) after 6 months of looking. They fit perfectly. They come in pink, white and blue. And, they're all sitting in my closet. [smilie=battingeyes.gif] [smilie=battingeyes.gif] [smilie=battingeyes.gif]

When you get up or get down, it sounds like you're stepping on bubble wrap.

People in their 30's (and 40's!) hold doors open for you. And they don't even
know you! This happens to me alot. :pirate:
