LOL!  How about refusing to answer the phone b/c your “show” is on… sad, but true!

Throwing your back out while putting on your pants…true story. Or moving a fraction of an inch in the shower.

When kids no longer know what I dial tone is. True story. A kid came into my work to use the phone and he looked so puzzled and kept saying “It just keeps buzzing, what do I do?” He was about 12 and had never heard a dial tone.

@SandyDollHair:  …you go to the bridal salon to try on wedding dresses and the salesperson asks whether “your daughter has arrived yet”.  Argh.

I may still be young in years, but…

When you go to a party, and someone asks “whose supervisor are you?” (I work in a university).

When you can no longer stand to go to your favourite spots because they are “full of kids” or “the music is too loud”

When the people at work get younger and younger every year…

True story… the other week, I was in this oil boom town in SE Asia, where I work, and I kept seeing 60+ rich European men with rolex watches, sports cars, and 17 year old Chinese girls in very few clothes on their arms. My first reaction… I wanted to say “aren’t you cold, love? I only ask because you seem to have forgotten your skirt. How about we get you home and find you a new one, eh? And in the meantime, why doesn’t your dear old Grandpa lend you his coat to cover you up?”

My fiance & I went to pay our 2nd deposit on our wedding reception and the guy at the venue said “is this for your daughter’s wedding?”  Yeah, nothing like that to make you feel old!!!
