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?

Reading glasses? Oh you can now read? You're welcome.

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

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

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

Is am young and I disapprove all of today's music except Cokdpkay the only good music today

I've been disapproving of this stuff since the summer of 2013 - 2014

3 someone calls you ma'am or sir

yeah I'm not too old for that

4 your hair starts going white

I'm 14 years old and this applies.


I'm almost old

5 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 saying how bad they are and that they they not very famous.

Love em totally also I like Queen and Journey in fact I am 11 and today's bands suck except Coldplay

I'm 11 too and their my favorite band and no one know who they are at school (I'm totally disgusted).

I'm only 11 but still shocked when someone says that.

6 Need to start using a cane

Well I WANT to use one, but that's just cause I'm lazy and I can use it to hit people

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

I just want one to hit people with

I won't use it even when I grow old.

7 you wish you had not thrown out your old toys, clothes, etc. as they are now worth billions of dollars

Dang I haven't thought about that... I'm already a hoarder, gah!

You've got a good point, there.

8 when your parents die
9 you move to Florida

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.

I can't believe people like this place all the old people live here

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

My mom calls Florida gods waiting room lol.

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

What do they know there to young no experience

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

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

I wish I was old, because this is something I want, n I can't get. Studies!

The late late show comes on a 1130 keep falling asleep and missing it

So aparrantly I am old even though I am in my teens?

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.

My grandpa knows how to use an IPad more than I do

14 You can't remember what you said to someone yesterday, but you can remember television commercial jingles from 1960

"Winston tastes good, like a cigarette should..."
(next two lines added by kids: "No filter, no flavor, just cotton-pickin' paper")

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.

No. That's just idiots.

18 When you think you remember what sex was

hopefully I'll never get there

19 You remember Tom and Jerry coming out in the 40s but don't remember the Wii U coming out

Ah Tom and jerry, always a classic

I mean yeah but, YEESH - Stakamakataka

20 When you call 20/30 somethings Kids

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

I am 26 and my relatives all call me a kid

21 you're still tired even though you've slept 12 hours

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

Story of my life

22 you get excited about tea

Oh gosh! I must be super-old...

23 You enjoy I Love Lucy

You're never too old or young to enjoy a classic like I Love Lucy

24 You personally knew Pablo Picasso

Or Albert Einstein.

25 when broadness of the mind and narrowness of the waist change places

Not quite but I'll come back in forty days. Things will have definitely have changed places by then.
