How you know when you are getting older...

and I am only 28.
Just a little experiment, I will start off.
Tax, the economy, politics, current affairs suddenly start to play on your mind,
You find teenagers incredibly cheeky despite the fact that you can remember the same been said about you at that age,
You stop listening to new music because it is rubbish and will never be as good as the music when you were a teenager,
please continue.....

Re: How you know when you are getting older...

One of the other ways you know, is when you spend a lot of time writing into internet forums, and getting responses from er! older people (no offense meant)
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

I know it's a bit of a cliche but for me it has to be when all the policemen/women look as if they're just out of nappies!

Re: How you know when you are getting older...


  An older gentleman had an appointment to see the urologist who
shared offices with several other doctors. The waiting room was filled
with patients.
 
    As he approached the receptionist's desk, he noticed that the
receptionist was a large unfriendly woman who looked like a Sumo
wrestler. He gave her his name.
 
    In a very loud voice, the receptionist said,
'YES, I HAVE YOUR NAME HERE;
YOU WANT TO SEE THE DOCTOR ABOUT IMPOTENCE, RIGHT?'

 
    All the patients in the waiting room snapped their heads around
to look at the very embarrassed man.
    He recovered quickly, and in an equally loud voice replied,
'NO, I'VE COME TO INQUIRE ABOUT A SEX CHANGE OPERATION,
BUT I DON'T WANT THE SAME DOCTOR THAT DID YOURS.'

 
DON'T MESS WITH OLD FOLKS.

I know I'm getting older because time only goes in one direction.

Hair starts to grow out out your ears, and you actually consider buying a "Hygienic Hair trimmer".

And with every passing week it moves faster in that direction!

Re: How you know when you are getting older...

Don't laugh.....it is all true...
Perks of reaching 50 or being over 60 and heading towards 70!
01.  Kidnappers are not very interested in you.
02.  In a hostage situation you are likely to be released first.
03.  No one expects you to run, anywhere.
04.  People call at 9 pm and ask, did I wake you?
05.  People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.
06.  There is nothing left to learn the hard way.
07.  Things you buy now won't wear out.
08.  You can eat supper at 4 pm.
09.  You can live without sex but not your glasses.
10.  You get into heated arguments about pension plans.
11.  You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.
12.  You quit trying to hold your stomach in no matter who walks into the room.
13.  You sing along with elevator music.
14.  Your eyes won't get much worse.
15 .  Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.
16.  Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the national weather service.
17.  Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either.
18.  Your supply of brain cells is finally down to manageable size.
19.  You can't remember who sent you this list.
And you notice these are all in Big Print for your convenience.
Forward this to every one you can remember right now!

Had this e-mail some time ago and artmo is absolutely correct - most of it is true and frighteningly so!

Re: How you know when you are getting older...

I am nearly 61 and I know I am old as when I talk to people about the good old days and things like the Light Program, valve radios, crystal sets, mangles and dolly tubs no one understands.
Kids in the street give you lip and call you an old git
You cant look at a pretty girl anymore as they call you a dirty old man.
People talk down to you as if you are stupid.
No one want to employ you even though you have over 20 years IT experience.
You need glasses so you can find your glasses you put down somewhere.
Some good points
If you have trouble with your teeth you take them out and give them the dentist.
You can stay in bed as long as you like
They dont ask you for ID when buying booze.
You dont have to sign on anymore and have a snoty nosed kids of 20 trying to tell you how to find a job and conduct yourself at an interview(I hated that)
You have all day to do nothing

That's the problem with today's elderly generation. They have no self-motivation.
