You have to make a noise when you sit down or when getting up off the couch.

You drop something and a nice young person picks it up for you.

When you get a motorbike to be cool and then find you can't push it up the ramp into the shed.

WibbleAgain - 28 Nov 2018 21:25:38 (#5 of 197)

When you realise you haven't cared about being cool for a long time. Or know or care about any of the current celebs, anywhere.

Pentecost - 28 Nov 2018 21:26:23 (#6 of 197)

Nah, that's being old, not getting old.

accidentally tuning the radio to Radio 1 and thinking 'wtf is that noise!' before changing station pdq.

WibbleAgain - 28 Nov 2018 21:26:47 (#8 of 197)

You're right. Been old for a long time.

Anchorman - 28 Nov 2018 21:27:29 (#9 of 197)

Or know or care about any of the current celebs, anywhere.



I've felt that way pretty much all of my life

not eating spicy food because it gives you indigestion.

the GP surgery starts contacting you asking for samples of your poo

The hospital starts contacting you asking for your skeleton.

I teach at a university, and the seniority with which my students address me has increased perfectly in line with my hair colour, which sadly is not matched by my actual seniority.

There's no longer anyone older than you playing in the World Cup finals/Euros, if that counts.

Of bowls.

Two entire decades become indistinguishable. 2000-till present may be a particularly indistinguishable brace however.

meepmeep - 28 Nov 2018 21:55:39 (#17 of 197)

...it takes a while and some cross-referencing of major events to remember how old you actually are

Rendered - 28 Nov 2018 21:55:45 (#18 of 197)

When you have some sympathy for people moaning about being old.

A work colleague was talking of his brothers wedding in Miami last week where both the bridesmaids were the (both) 103-year-old Cuban grandmothers of the bride... They were feeling old during the Cuban missile crisis for instance.

I think I’ve seen that movie...
