You’ve lived long enough to see the clothes you wore in High School come back in style.

When the cashier at Ross just ever-so-helpfully asks me “are you a member of our Tuesday Club?”

Me: (by the way, I go in a Ross about 2x a year), “is that some type of savings card or something?” (thinking, grocery store type)

Cashier: “No, every Tuesday if you are over 55 you get 10% off, no card needed or anything….”


a.  what I wanted to say:  SO what are ya’ trying’ to say here, I LOOK over 55?  Thanks a lot for ruining an otherwise lovely Tuesday you young, bratty young person.

b.  what I said: “oh yes I am over 55 (cuz really bees, I just turned 58 recently), I’ll take the discount.

Walking out I’m thinking, there’s another 2.00 to add to the ring fund………cuz, because rings:)

bubblescomere :  Haha, this thread is hilarious! You know you’re old when your co-workers decide to go bowling for team building on a “work night” from 8-10pm and you say you can’t get go because you’d get home too late. (I legit didn’t go so I could get enough sleep for work the next day.)

You know you’re old when your kid cousins are now graduating from undergrad and master’s programs and are working adult jobs now.

You know you’re old when you and SO and are deciding which city to move to based on how “family friendly” it is (we are planning to marry & TTC soon).

I’m 31.

When everyone in the sports team you follow is younger than you, and the ones your age are considered ‘veterans’ and every news article is about how they have to retire because they’re sooooo old.

….. when I learned that a kid I last saw as a cute little toddler in diapers (while I’m an adult married woman) is now a bald grandfather. Yup – just had that experience a few days ago. Life is short.
