    the one thing you remember is when popular music had artists who actually SANG the words.

    When the stores keep asking you if you qualify for the "over the hill discount".

    Or...

    When the stores stop asking you if you qualify for the "over the hill discount", and just give you the discount anyway.

    When you remember what it was like to dance *with* a partner. (Might only make sense to the over 50 crowd, that hit the honky tonks, in their younger days.)

    You can tell your old when you go to fill in a form on a computer that asks for your date of birth and you have to scroll to the bottom of the page to find the year.

    And you know you are ready for retirement when your workmates start calling you "old man" or "old boy" instead of by your name. ( but when they don't know something they always come and ask you for the answer )

    Two decades ago I was working on a team and one of the guys had been working for quite a few decades. A group of us would eat lunch and take a walk when the weather was nice and on said walk, this guy mentioned that he had been hired in 19xx. I said that was the year I was born! Everyone laughed.

    Now the tables have turned and I am getting to be the old guy.

    Later,
    Dan

    You bet, .. when you see folks on TV shuffling and waving their arms and can't tell whether they're dancing .. or exercising. (blurred lines these days)

    You sink your teeth into a steak, and they stay there.

    You enjoy hearing about other people's operations.

    You have a dream about prunes.

    You wear black socks with sandals.

    Your ears are hairier than your head.

    When you bend over, you look for something else to do while you're down there.
    If a man says he’ll fix it, he will. There is no need to remind him every 6 months about it!

    ... when after a big meal you're usually ready to 'sleep-off some calories'.

    ... when the leaders of a dozen+ 'World powers' are just 'kids' to you.

    ... when you get the most 'likes' for posting on-topic (for once) in a forum.

    ... when you drive the golf cart to the mailbox instead of pedaling a bicycle.

    ... when your GF was born your sophomore year of college and has more grandkids than you do.

    ... when your huntin'/shootin' buds don't know what the word 'sophomore' means.

    ... when they call you 'old-fashioned' 'cuz the brim of you hat is on the front, and you wonder how they knew you're favorite 'cocktail', not even realizing they're old enough to drink.

    ... when the word 'cocktail' only means an IED to them & they wonder why you'd sip on an explosive.

    Of course, you would be really old if you scroll to the bottom of the list and the year isn't listed.
    Or...
    you require a 3 digit year, and they only give you 2 digits.

    I.E.
    Are there computer programs that don't accept ages of 101 years?
    Birth dates of 1899?
    Can't differentiate between someone born in 1909 and 2009?
