Default I'm No Longer a Kid

Recently, I was playing "Cards with Humanity" with a group of people. I looked around and realized I was the only one who was alive during the Cold War.

My project manager admonished some of my coworkers for picking car rentals that charged extra because they were under 25. I would laugh, but that means that I was driving longer than they were alive.

Now, if you would kindly get off my lawn, I'll be shopping for walkers.

Considering that I work with a lot of people young enough I could have given birth to them, I relate.

Same here. And when you hear the songs that were big hits when you were in high school played on a store's Muzak system, it's all downhill from there...

It gets even worse when you hear songs your kids liked but you hated playing on the Muzak system.

I find it weird to have friends who were born the year I graduated from high school!

I game with people that could be my grandkids [if any pregnancy I ever had popped out alive birth that is] I have been known to joke that I have unopened mail on my desk marked urgent older than they are, or socks or tshirts in my drawer older than they are. And as I have socks that are 35 or so years old, and still have some t-shirts from concerts I went to back in the mid 70s...*sob*

I remember hearing about a Malaprop Bob Hope made at a charity golf tournament. He was interviewing a young volunteer.

Hope: "How old are you?"
CM: "18"
Hope: "18? I have balls older than you."
Crowd:
Bob: I meant golf balls.

I can say that for 3 out of the 5 managers at my store currently.

Excuse me while I get distracted . . . my rhematism is actin' up and I can't find my walker.

I have, in the past, actually told people "I've got socks older than you!!" ...and meant it literally x_x

About half the guys at work were born after I finished high school. I've been known to honestly tell some of them, when they borrow some of my tools, 'Be careful with that, it's older than you are.'
