I think I realized that I was officially old when I didn’t enjoy going to big concerts anymore.
I still like to see bands in small clubs, but those big concerts? I just don’t like the whole shebang anymore.
It’s too much work and I’d rather be at home on the couch!
Yeah, like I said…I’m old now.
AskReddit users admitted when they realized they weren’t young anymore.
Let’s see what they had to say.
“I was in my late 20s, at work talking with one of our new interns.
I can’t remember why but she asked how old someone was and I was like, “I dunno, about our age?” She gasped and asked “How old do you think I am??”
Then I gasped and asked, “HOW OLD DO YOU THINK I AM?!”
Anyway, that’s when I realized I was ”not young” anymore.”
“When a song I loved as a teenager appeared as an oldie on the radio.
I DJ’d a wedding a year ago and the groom asked me if I could play that one oldie…”Get Low” from Lil Jon.”
3. Oh, boy…
“When I dislocated my jaw lying in bed yawning.
Didn’t even think it was even possible.”
4. Getting old.
“It was very weird to me to hear my girlfriends sisters talking about how they learned about 9/11 in history class.”
5. Out of place.
“When I went to a nightclub last weekend and everyone looked like children.”
6. How exciting!
“I just bought a new mop and was really excited to go home and use it.
I mopped the whole apartment in absolute bliss.
I finally decided that I will not fall for the Swiffer commercials again.”
7. Gave them a scolding.
“Saw some neighborhood kids messing with a stop sign while driving home. I slowed the car down, rolled down a window and said,
“Hey… I think maybe you shouldn’t be doing that.”
Which in my mind meant cut it out before an adult catches you.
But these kids look sheepishly at the ground and give me an ok like I was the adult in the situation. Which I was, gently chastising children for fooling around with public property.”
“I took my fiancé back to the University I attended and we went for a drink at my old favorite bar.
Ordered a margarita & the waitress said, “Do you want the well tequila that we serve to everyone or like…. adult tequila?””
9. I hear you!
“When my best friend and I were planning for a concert next month and for the first time in our lives we were like “Do we… want to buy seats instead of standing in the pit?”.”
“It was when I went to casually step off a 4 foot drop.
I had one foot of the ledge and my brain screamed Danger, I had to stop reset and prepare myself to absorb the impact and make sure I bent my knees.
20 year old me wouldn’t have thought at all about that.
I was in my mid thirties at the time.”
11. Still remember…
“When I got my first decent car and accompanying loan.
40 years ago and I still remember the payment amount. $207.72.”
12. Party’s over.
“Walked into nightclub in my mid-30s and got the “what’s my dad doing here?” looks.
Yep, the party was over.”
