I've probably paid for my chiropractors horsie.
.. people address you as "sir" in the skatepark.
The first time the pretty girl at the cash register calls you sir. Noooooo!
Gimme my discount, kid!
When you have to go for a pedicure because you can't reach your toes with the nail clippers anymore. Happened on Sunday.
I knew I was getting old when I heard Grateful Dead and Hot Tuna songs on the Muzak in the supermarket - and that was 20 years ago.
Anybody remember what Muzak is?
Red Skelton even composed songs for them. Muzak was designed to give upbeat music to workers from Monday AM to Friday PM, then , mellower on the weekends. In the '80s, I heard Moody Blues and others on Muzak. Better than hearing classic songs on Ex Lax commercials, I guess.
I know I’m old because:
I remember when phones with buttons were new-fangled...
...and I use the term new-fangled.
as a bit of an extension to new found physical limitations, I have really severe allergies and this summer has been especially bad for me here in Texas. Sunday morning I had a bit of a sneezing fit and pulled some sort of muscle in my neck. Dumb thing still hurts today!
Sneezing is one of the most explosive releases of energy in the body. It can easily cause dislocations through muscle spasms. Can you get a professional massage to loosen the neck muscles and relieve the pain?
well, i actually have a bulging disk in my neck too, so the problem is actually deeper than just being horrifyingly out of shape.
Like Don Henley sang, " I saw a Deadhead sticker on a Cadillac, you can't go back"
That one made me laugh out loud. The kids at the counter probably had no idea what the Soviet Union was.
ROFL, that bring up an old college memory. Some guy showed me a picture of Nancy Wilson (Heart) lookin awfully pretty with some guitar hanging off her neck and I said COOL! He was all "Cool? WTH?" I didn't realize I was supposed to be looking at her, all I saw was the guitar!
Apparently plenty have nothing better to do than reply to what should be, and mostly is, a fun thread.
When movies or shows where the people wear clothes you grew up wearing (and maybe still wear) are referred to as "period pieces".
Especially if you're there to watch your grandchildren skate!
People start offering "senior discounts" without you even asking.
My (2nd) wife is 16 years younger than me and only 8 years older than my eldest daughter. Some years ago I went with them on a designer clothing shopping expedition. When I was standing around looking slightly uncomfortable the helpful sales assistant said: "I think it's great that you take your daughters shopping". They never let me live it down!
So, about 7 or 8 years ago that happened to me twice in a two day period. It turned out Tuesdays were the seniors discount day in the local supermarket and I was offered a look at the seniors menu in a restaurant. That seems to have been when the tide started to turn...
