View Full Version : When did you first realize you were old/older?

I'm not saying that I'm old by any means. I'm only 27 and I know some of you around here are pushing 100.

I was at Target the other day searching for my "damn rock music" as the old people would put it, and I overheard two "younger" girls talking about CDs they were looking at. When I say younger I mean along the lines of 14-16...although who can really tell anymore. Anyways I overheard them talking about the Poison's Greatest Hits CD and one girl turned to the other one and said "Who's Poison?". The other girl had no clue as well.

At that point in time....I've determined that I'm getting older and it's all downhill from here.

So when did you first notice that you were old?

I'll be waiting for the Skip joke as well....

When I made the "Old man getting off the couch" noise. You know what I'm talking about. That "I'm struggling to stand up" noise.

That accompanied with many gray hairs in my beard. Oy vey. Only 30, but kids make me feel like I'm 50.

I realized it back when we got a car with moonroof, I was cruising down the highway on a nice spring day with the roof open and the sun shining down on me. I was feeling good until I glanced up in the rearview mirror and noticed the sun reflecting off my scalp through all my thinning hair...

Music usually does it, when you hear a song on the radio and its referred to as ďOld SchoolĒ or ďback in the dayĒ and its something you listened to in HS or collage.

I asked a younger woman to dance at a club one night and she said,"You're old enough to be my dad."

I looked at her and replied,"You should've just kicked me in the nuts,it would've felt better."

When all of the hair on my chest turned gray.

I was listening to the radio back a few months ago. The Ramones came on. The jock said "There's an oldie but a goodie..."

Delivered a job to a warehouse a couple weeks ago. The kid in the warehouse was a 20 something pierced I-Pod wearing skate punk type. He looked at my shoes and said "Where'd you get those Reebok high tops. Those are OLD SCHOOL!" I bought them a month ago. I wanted to KILL him.

Damn kids....stay off my lawn!

I was Christmas shopping a couple of years ago and purchased some items at Bed Bath & Beyond. The clerk(she was in her late teens/early twenties) asked me a question....don't remember what it was, but I replied back with something that I thought was quite clever and was waiting for her to laugh and/or relate. Instead, she says "Yeah, that's what my Dad always says too".....that's when I knew I was "old"

Music doesn't do it for me.

I never liked the music of my generation, and have always preferred the music from the 50's and earlier.

I realized I was older when I began participating on these Chiefs forums, and seemingly 90% if you poor bastards are to young to have seen the SB Chiefs.

I've got that problem as well. Holding on to what I have left until the day that I have no hair on top. At that point, I'm shaving my head bald for the rest of my life.


Also, a little advice for you "younger" kids. Don't shave your hair short. It won't grow back. I did it when I was 26 or so and it never came back. Consider yourself warned.

Oh yeah....another time that I realized that I might be getting old.

This last Halloween I was driving over to my brother's house to take my niece out trick or treating (another sign that I might be getting older). On the way over I noticed three punk kids (yet another sign) who were walking up the sidewalk to someone's house. They ran up to the door and grab the pumpkins off the porch. Normally back when I was 18-21, I would have laughed and drove off. Not now....I quickly turned around and started honking at them until they put the pumpkins down and ran off.

Maybe that's not getting old....maybe that's just having respect. Who knows.

How about the first couple of times that I went out to play basketball this spring. A couple of days later, I could barely walk because I think I injured something near my groin. Not even sure when or how it happened as I didn't notice it the first day after I played. Hell, I even went home and cleaned house right after playing hoops for a couple hours. 2 days later, I could barely walk. Everyone tells me "you're getting old". SCREW YOU ALL FOR SAYING THAT!!!

What brought it home - talking with some undergrads when I was at graduate school about how there was no such thing as cell phones when I was growing up. Then seeing the uncomprehending looks on their faces when they asked, "How did you ever get together with your friends to do anything?"

When I was talking to a bartender and made a comment about smoking in McDonalds.~ She looked at me like I had just grown another head out of my neck.

I realized I had become “the crazy underwear lady”~
My son cried out in a hi-pitched adolescent voice to “Please stop buying him underwear, he has enough for three weeks” in the middle of Target.


My son was telling me about “this funny song about butts, that they play at the skating ring”~
I then quoted the first few lines of “Baby Got Back” . yes he’s ok now, but I was worried for the first few minutes that he had died of embarrassment. (And we were in the car.)

A little over a year ago, I was getting together with my cousin and jamming (he plays drums and I play guitar). Now he is a few years younger than me but he is over 30. His wife is a couple years younger than he is, I think. She hangs out with even younger people (coworkers from the restaurant and/or her younger brother's friends, I think).

They are having a party and invite us to come over and jam. So, I go over a couple of weekends and jam with my cousin. Several of the guys there are also musicians so we kind of ended up just have a free for all jamfest. It was a lot of fun. But I also got to thinking about it and then kind of felt weird. I am 36 (was 35 at the time) and here I am hanging out at parties of people(most were probably ages 16-21) that were barely older than my son who was 14 at the time. They wanted us to jam over there for New Year's Eve. I declined. :( It just felt.......wrong.

Yea, I can see several problems with that. Say a few of the kids have alcohol and the party gets busted. Who do you think the cops are going to haul in for distributing to minors?
Who was the Green Bay tight end that went to an after prom party and was accused of molesting a 16 y.o.? Canít think of the dip shitís name but thatís a pretty good reason to just avoid that type of situation all together.

"getting old" really struck home when a guy at work was talking about how their baby was due on his MIL's bday.... and he told me how "old" she was going to be - which was 2 years younger than I was at the time...... :(

BTW, what is up with skinny 120 pounds emo guys getting hot chicks? When I was 17 those were the kids that got the shit beat out of them, shoved in lockers, and called Rump Rangers. What is going on

I was pondering that a few days ago as well. I saw some emo douche with finger -less gloves and a f*cking emo scarf hitting on this luscious broad. The worst part was I knew he wasn't gonna f*ck her and that they were probably talking about panic at the disco. :shake:

For me, it was always my little sister who is 11 years younger than me. Things changed so much while she was growing up. I listened to cassettes, she listened to CD's. I had a CB in my truck as a teenager, she had a cell phone. Her graduating high school was incomprehensible to me. But the worst thing for me was when she was in college. It was right before her sophomore year. I was helping her move her stuff into the dorm. While I was visiting with her boyfriend outside, one of his buddies came up to say hello, and he asked me if I was Kayla's dad. I was shocked that he could even think that. I have never been able to forget it either. Young F***er.

I used to play basketball EVERY DAY. Now I play twice a week and I'm smoked.

I watched American Pie last weekend. HOLY BALLS that was a long time ago.

I get pissed when I see punk ass kids being worthless. (used to be one)

I think frequently about my career. (used to be just sports)

I think frequently about my retirement fund. Yeah you heard me. RETIREMENT.

I think frequently about how to handle my parents' estate when they go.

My Dad talks frequently about retiring. He used to be a hard-assed workhorse.

I saw a girl in Wal-Mart and commented to my fiancee that she couldn't be more than 14. She's 19 and works with my fiancee.

The list goes on and on.......and on.

I'm not saying that I'm old by any means. I'm only 27 and I know some of you around here are pushing 100.

I was at Target the other day searching for my "damn rock music" as the old people would put it, and I overheard two "younger" girls talking about CDs they were looking at. When I say younger I mean along the lines of 14-16...although who can really tell anymore. Anyways I overheard them talking about the Poison's Greatest Hits CD and one girl turned to the other one and said "Who's Poison?". The other girl had no clue as well.

At that point in time....I've determined that I'm getting older and it's all downhill from here.

So when did you first notice that you were old?

I'll be waiting for the Skip joke as well....
