You Know You're Getting Old When...

Recommended Posts

When your conversations always drift to how many and what kind of pills your taking. Then after that who died and who is in the hospital.

=== that you’re watching bowling at all is a sure sign you’ve seen many decades in your rear view—

Even worse when you wake up with something new hurting.

 

 I woke up with one with my arm hanging out of the bed wrong, hurt for over a week.

What upsets me the most is when someone calls me "SIR".

That's a compliment considering Tarheel is older than dirt...

that's a kick in the gut, isn't it?

 

  first time I heard it I think my OOOPH was audible

my appearance does not inspire "Sir" comments now.

 

anyone remember BullDurham tobacco?  little cloth bag that insures a stale product.  Gets/got so dry [here] that it converts to snuff. Not the "pinch between your cheek and gum" stuff.

 

another one

discounts on new cars being 5X what we paid for our first new car.

Once upon a time we built a "belly wheel" for a retiree who had a big gut hanging.  Just a truss like support with a pipe & wheel attached to it.  Was hilarious watching his reaction when he was opening his gifts.  He's since passed and I ran into his good looking daughter a couple weeks ago and she said "Dad would want you to have his belly wheel I think.  I'll drop it off sometime!"  Well it was my idea but...   😰

That's nothing, last year we were in Galveston Tx late one night and the only place open to eat was a Whataberger. We went in. It was very busy being about the only place open and we were about 3rd in line and the girl behind the counter looked around everybody in front of us and asked me if I wanted my free senior citizen drink. :huh: I didn't know what to say, I just stood there, I had never been asked anything like that before and the wife says well answer the girl, I laughed and said I guess so?

Around here they just give me the senior citizen discount without even asking. 😨 I didn't think that it was so obvious.

I know, I guess it was easy for her, she was probably under 25 and I look like a dinosaur to her.

1.A couple of weeks ago my wife and I were standing while riding on a very crowded New York City Subway car and two young people offered us their seats which was very nice revealing as to how we must look.  

2. My wife and I were ordering food at a fast food restaurant and arguing over how to order so there was no confusion. The cashier said "That's so cute!" I wanted to smack him.

3. Last one. I used to manage a middle school cafeteria and one day while working in my office I hear a lot of commotion coming from the serving lines and one the servers yelling. I go out to see what is going on and just as I'm rounding the corner I hear one of the kids say 

"Where's the old man?" I replied quite sharply, "He's right here!"  The look on his face was priceless.....

When you forget about this thread and it is almost to the bottom of the page, your old.
