    Regardless of how old you're, there are things in your day-to-day existance, that point out to you that you're not as spritely as you used to be...

    List at least 5 of them in this thread.

    1. Enjoying Jeremy Vines show on Radio 2.
    2. Making loud grunting noises when sitting down/getting up from a chair.
    3. The hangover lasting longer than the being pissed.
    4. Moaning about the 1p fluctuations in fuel price.
    5. Having to purchase a Nasal Hair Trimmer.
    6. Not wanting to get stoned because the subsequent munchies will make you bloated & give you indigestion.
    7. Avoiding Thursday night drinks because "you want to save yourself for the weekend".

    It can't just be me thats feeling like a bit of Grandad? :D

    The year I was born...

    Actually, I realize I'm gettin' old when I actually can help younger people with problems I had when I was younger too..things make more sense to me now..it's like,"Oh no..I'm old and wiser..."

    The main one for me is saying things that my dad says and realising that i act like him when i'm giving people advice.. Its like "FUCK, my dad says that! Arghhh"

    Also have to agree I hate getting pissed and having a chronic hangover, thats why I generally don't and just stick to my K :)

    Another thing that gets me is going to my local on a Friday and see the kids in there and thinking, "Geeze louise aint it past your bed time you little bastard!" That sucks balls knowing your gettin old :(

    talk of alzeimers. this is no lie.

    my grandad used to own the bridlington links (golf club), hes minted and i used to work for him for years. now because its got a massive function room attached to the clubhouse, groups would come and use it i.e. teacher training days stuff like that, well one week the local alzeimers assoiation came, had some dinner and a meeting and what have you.

    Anyway three weeks later my grandad recieves an apology letter and a cheque for 350 quid. they'd walked out and forgotten to pay. no shit, how funny is that.
