I know I've got old when.... I used to be the remote control and tv was only in black & white. When mums were the old gal now I'm the old gal. Telling my kids/grandkids off for doing the same things I used to do. Remembering baby doll nighties being the fashion. Colouring my hair for a change now its to hide the grey. Dancing with a partner doing the jive and going to a disco.

I know I've got old when: Trying to be of help to a young mum, I try to retrieve something her baby has dropped, and then she has to call for assistance to help me back up Wink

It happened to me a couple of years ago. While getting off a plane in Sydney, I let a small kid (it turned out that he was four years old) and his parents get off before me. As he walked past me, the boy looked up and said (very loudly!) "He's a VERY old man!". Out of the mouths of babes! Roll eyes Roll eyes Roll eyes Edited by member, 29th Aug 2014 10:07 pm

Whilst chatting up a lady younger than myself, she said "You're old enough to be my dad" Quick as a flash I replied "I might be. What is your mothers name?" (If the moderators find this too risque then please delete. I really don't want to lower the tone of this fabulous site)
