One of mine was years ago. I was driving past my old high school, that wasn't odd at the time I had to drive past it every day to get to work

There were a bunch of kids waiting at the corner to cross the street. Looking at them it occurred to me that someone who was born on my first day of high school was now in high school. That was when I ws 27/28 so it didn't make me feel "old" but definitely made me realize that time was passing

Having trouble remembering what someone told me last week but having total recall of a sitcom theme song from 35 years ago

Something else I always hear was when you get to the point that you don't recognize the host or musical guest on Saturday Night Live - you're old

I was just talking about this one last week, watching older movies and identifying more with the adults

Came across this talking about the Little Mermaid

Ariel: Daddy, I love him!

Me at 14: Yeah, girl, you tell him!

Me at 30:

this is true for me.

And I take it one step further.

Even now a small part of my brain thinks of the year 2000 as the future

Every Night I go to work...

When I go to the store I look around and say: "Where did all these young people come from?, they didn't used to be this many."

I remember when I went to the store and I would see old people, now I realize that I am the old people.

I'm sure there are a number of things that contribute to making me feel older.
I can't tolerate feeling like this! Where is this madness going to end?!?!
I'm not going to stand for getting older anymore! I'm putting my foot down!
Enough is enough!!! :rant:

I once watched a young coworker downloading MP3s onto her smart phone.
So I quipped, "Yeah, it's easy for y'all. When we wanted the the latest tune we had to go to the store and buy the 45."

Yes, that puzzled look on her face made me feel really old. :mecry:
