You Know You're Getting Old When...

Recommended Posts

My brother worked with a bunch of young folks at a grocery store...he was the manager. He said one day they were talking about comedy movies and he mentioned Animal House. Everyone just stood and stared at him ... they claimed they’d never even heard of it. He said he walked away feeling very old.

I try to stop myself before comparing a situation to this scene from Five Easy Pieces.  I got tired of the blank stares.

I, for one, remember it from the day (1970, Alexandria Theater, San Francisco, with Annie).

 

I love that scene.  That kind of thing happens in real life; I always wondered if the writers were familiar with Paul Goodman's diary,  Five Years - Notes During a Worthless Time, (published before Five Easy Pieces) in which Goodman, a New Yorker, orders a root beer float somewhere in the Deep South.  The guy behind the counter said, "We don't make those."  Goodman orders a bowl of vanilla ice cream and a glass of root beer.  Just as he is spooning the ice cream into the root beer glass, it is snatched away.  The guy says, "I know what you're doing, you Northerners." (or was it " you Yankees?").

It's there job to find something wrong, or at least guess at it.

 

I know what is going to be next, they will want to stick something up where I would rather not.

You know you're getting old when you know what a proctologist is......which reminds me.....

How do you tell the proctologist at a cocktail party?

 

He's the one with the brown ring around his eye.....

My boss is 26; it's ok because I trained, excuse me, mentored him. Anyway, he didn't know who Mel Brooks is nor had heard of any of his movies. So now I make him watch You Tube clips of "vintage" comedy.....

For the last few years, every barber asks if I want my eyebrows trimmed.  I always say Yes, because they can do a better job than I can do in the mirror.  

 

Also, overgrown eyebrows yell SENIOR CITIZEN!

Just go to a salon, where they cut both men's and ladies' hair, and you should be able to get a good job done.  Spoil yourself and get a shampoo at the same time.  Sure, it'll cost more than a barbershop, but they'll know how to trim or cut long hair.

Heck I've been using the same good-looking chick for 25 years.  I just call and ask when I can schedule Joy for a lap dance.  They know RIGHT away who it is and what's going on!  :)
