Thread: you know you're getting old when.

    I knew I was old when I was old enough to be every other student's father, when I was in college. In fact, I was older than the program director for my course of study. /smh
    Her: I love my computer! All of my friends are in there!
    Me: Yeah, I was thinking the same thing about my freezer...
    Her: What?
    Me: What?

    You know you're getting old when you're old enough to be your doctor's father. I've since switched doctors.

    When you remember seasonal vegetables. The missus was saying that post Brexit there could be a period when we can't get Mediterranean veg. When I was a kid salads were a summer thing, lettuce, cucumber and tomato, and in winter there was swede, cabbage and carrots with, parsnip and brussels from Christmas on, in other words what grew here, usually on Dad's allotment. I remember my Mother coming home in triumph with a green pepper from the greengrocer for the first time ever.

    I remember when Britain first joined the EU the euphoria over the availability of cheap wine, beer and cigarettes via the 'Booze' cruises. I wonder what will happen post Brexit.

    Anarchy. Dogs sleeping with cats. Gnashing of teeth, rending of garments. Or maybe, no one will really notice.

    Oh, and I know I'm getting old when every statement is an opportunity to be coarse, sour, and sarcastic.
    I guess I've been old a long time.

    I used to be the world's youngest dirty old man. And now, well... Just subtract the "youngest" part. LOL

    I am the world's youngest old curmudgeon, assuming that "old curmudgeonhood" begins at seventy or so.

    Damn kids and their hip hop pants.

    you know you are getting old when your contemporaries start expressing strident, curmudgeonly views. Personally I don't mind hot pants, hip hop pants, trousers without belts that show their pants, or even Bermuda shorts in bright colours. They are not for me, but if they want to wear them it identifies the wearers for me so I don't have to associate.
