These bones are a creakin’, baby!

I’ve noticed that I’m getting up there in years because every time I bend to pick up something off the floor, my knees make A LOT of noise.

But I guess that’s just part of life, right?

When did you realize you were getting old?

Here’s what AskReddit users had to say.

That sucks.

“All of my beauty products just stopped being produced.

One by one… my shampoo, my eyebrow pencil, the curlers I use in my hair every d**n day…

Poof! They are gone. Good luck finding a replacement.

I guess I should be happy they produced them for 30+ years, but I really wish they could have held on 30 more. F**king bulls**t!”

Who are these people?

“I was reading Rolling Stone at the doctors office and realized I hardly knew any of the bands on the Billboard #1 singles list.

’90s music to my kids is like what ’60s music was to me.”

There you go.

“My every day routine: Come home from work, watch Wheel of Fortune, look at the newspaper and sit outside(weather permitting), to watch the birds and squirrels.

If that doesn’t mean I am old, then nothing does!”


“When I started mixing corn flakes with frosted flakes because frosted flakes alone was too f**king sweet.

7 year old me would be shocked at old me.”

Let’s slow down.

“At 44 I don’t feel old but when I’m going to do something now I think about it if I could get hurt.”

Are you okay?!?!

“I fell on ice not long ago.

I was around a large group of people. On the way down, everyone had the sharp intake of breath and a look of terror.

While on the ground, I was the only one laughing. That’s when I realized though I may not feel old, other people know I am.”


“I was explaining something to a young coworker and went, “you know, the band The Presidents of the United States of America?”

Blank Stare.

“The one with the song that goes ‘Movin to the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches.'” She looked at me like I was insane.”

Doing nothing.

“This is a common conversation with my husband and I.

“Do we have to do anything this weekend?”

“I don’t think so.”

“Oh thank god.””


“I recently saw a reddit post about things that were popular 25 years ago and I thought about the 80s until I saw a comment that pointed out that we are talking about 1998.

I also then realized that I am older than 25.

I also recently used the phrase ’20 years ago’ when I was talking to a friend. That hit different.”

Ancient TV.

“I was browsing a thrift store a few years ago, an RCA wooden console TV caught my eye because we had an identical one growing up so I checked it out for fun, read the back of it and everything.

A while later as I was standing in line beside the TVs, a kid behind me points to the wooden console one and goes “MOM, LOOK AT THAT ANCIENT TV!”

It was made the same year I was born.”

This game isn’t fun…

“You know what’s a totally not fun game to play with your younger coworkers?

Asking them what cartoons they grew up watching.

Asking them where they were on 9/11 is also a good one.”

What’s your “I’m getting old” story?
