Top Ten Ways You Know You Are Getting Old

What are the things that happen that remind you that yes, you are older no matter how young you still think you are?
The Top Ten
1 can't read anymore without reading glasses

I am horrified of the day I will not be able to work top-notch, especially if I cannot see anything.

Sorry, but I couldn't read this. Now where did I keep my glasses?

Wow, I'm thirteen and this applies to me. I must be getting old.

2 you disapprove of the clothing young people wear, and their music, too

My grandpa always tells me not to listen to rap, but it's so darn addicting!

Wait, I was already doing that since I was thirteen.

I'm pretty young and I already disapprove. It makes me feel old already.

3 someone calls you ma'am or sir
4 your hair starts going white

I'm 14 years old and this applies.

5 Need to start using a cane

I want a cane, but only to hit people with.

Well, I want to use one, but that's just because I'm lazy and I can use it to hit people.

6 you are stunned when a young person says Who are the Beatles?

I'm 13 and I love the Beatles, but now everyone at school says how bad they are and that they are not very famous.

I'm thirteen, but I'm still stunned. I must be getting old.

My generation is stuffed. Simple as that.

7 you wish you had not thrown out your old toys, clothes, etc. as they are now worth billions of dollars
8 when your parents die
9 you move to Florida

Florida is not just for old people. What about Orlando?

This one is funny but very true!

LOL. I didn't want to vote for this one initially. It sure is funny though. I'll move to Florida when I'm old and gray, but I'll move to the Keys somewhere. I'll stay out of Ft. Lauderdale.

10 the doctor/police officer/etc. look too young to be qualified to do these jobs

11 you are done for the night by 10 pm at the latest

My mom made me go to bed at 9 PM when I was in high school. Does that mean my mom is forcing me to grow old too fast?

The Late Late Show comes on at 11:30. I keep falling asleep and missing it.

12 Your back goes out more than you do
13 there are too many new-fangled devices to learn how to use

Trying to plod through Office 2007 and a new droid phone as well.

14 You can't remember what you said to someone yesterday, but you can remember television commercial jingles from 1960
15 You get in a lot of pain recently
16 (for women) you find yourself shopping at Talbot's instead of Banana Republic (or the Limited, or some store like that)
17 Someone calls you an old fart!

Oh! Of course, it's the surest signal.

18 You remember Tom and Jerry coming out in the 40s but don't remember the Wii U coming out
19 When you think you remember what sex was
20 you get excited about tea
21 you're still tired even though you've slept 12 hours

This could be a sign of a serious physical or mental problem regardless of age.

I've felt this way now for a few years.

22 When you call 20/30 somethings Kids

I'm in the Millennial generation and have a kind of fear of old age. When it's the 2050s, oh no it's happened.

Instead of young adults or some other less demeaning and age-defining phrase.

You will try to resist it, but eventually, you will fall into this little age-revealing habit. By crackie...

23 You think Betty White is sexy

RIP Betty White. You were always old whether you were five years old or eighty years old.

What the hell? This is probably true though.

24 You enjoy I Love Lucy
25 your pants start to rise to your armpits

I will never let that happen to me, even if I have to wear those 3-inch rise jeans when I'm older.

I will never stop wearing low and ultra-low rise pants no matter how old I get.
