You read this entire list looking desperately for one sign that doesn't apply to you...

You know you're getting old when you realize that you used to do your banking inside of a bank.

Or...

You remember when cable tv first came out and in exchange for your monthly payment, you didn't have to suffer thru commercials like those "free tv" folks did!

Your joints are more accurate than the National Weather Service.

You know you're getting old when your shoes were 1/2 size smaller because you could bend down enough to cut your toenails. Hahahaha

This one seems to fit this thread so well.........

Subject: Should I Really Join Facebook?



I do not know who wrote this, but the gist of it sure does fit most of the people I know who are my age:

When I bought my Blackberry, I
thought about the 30-year business I ran with 1800 employees, all without
a cell phone that plays music, takes videos, pictures and communicates
with Facebook and Twitter. I signed up under duress for Twitter and
Facebook, so my seven kids, their spouses, 13 grandkids and 2 great grand
kids could communicate with me in the modern way.. I figured I could
handle something as simple as Twitter with only 140 characters of
space.

That was before one of my grandkids
hooked me up for Tweeter, Tweetree, Twhirl, Twitterfon, Tweetie and
Twittererific Tweetdeck, Twitpix and something that sends every message to
my cell phone and every other program within the texting world.

My phone was beeping every three
minutes with the details of everything except the bowel movements of the
entire next generation. I am not ready to live like this. I keep my cell
phone in the garage in my golf bag.

The kids bought me a GPS for my last
birthday because they say I get lost every now and then going over to the
grocery store or library. I keep that in a box under my tool bench with
the Blue tooth [it's red] phone I am supposed to use when I drive. I wore
it once and was standing in line at Barnes and Noble talking to my wife
and everyone in the nearest 50 yards was glaring at me. I had to take my
hearing aid out to use it, and I got a little loud.

I mean the GPS looked pretty smart
on my dash board, but the lady inside that gadget was the most annoying,
rudest person I had run into in a long time. Every 10 minutes, she would
sarcastically say, "Re-calc-u-lating." You would think that she could be
nicer. It was like she could barely tolerate me. She would let go with a
deep sigh and then tell me to make a U-turn at the next light. Then if I
made a right turn instead. Well, it was not a good
relationship.




When I get really lost now, I call
my wife and tell her the name of the cross streets and while she is
starting to develop the same tone as Gypsy, the GPS lady, at least she
loves me.

To be perfectly frank, I am still
trying to learn how to use the cordless phones in our house. We have had
them for 4 years, but I still haven't figured out how I can lose three
phones all at once and have to run around digging under chair cushions and
checking bathrooms and the dirty laundry baskets when the phone rings.

The world is just getting too
complex for me. They even mess me up every time I go to the grocery store.
You would think they could settle on something themselves but this sudden
"Paper or Plastic?" every time I check out just knocks me for a loop. I
bought some of those cloth reusable bags to avoid looking confused, but I
never remember to take them in with me.

Now I toss it back to them. When
they ask me, "Paper or Plastic?" I just say, "Doesn't matter to me. I am
bi-sacksual." Then it's their turn to stare at me with a blank look. I was
recently asked if I tweet. I answered, No, but I do toot a lot."


Us senior citizens don't need
anymore gadgets. The TV remote and the garage door remote are about all we
can handle.

"Mind your own beeswax" seems like a perfectly good retort.

...taking a sweater along "just in case" usually turns out to be a pretty good idea.

When the money no longer jingles out of the slot machine at the Casino.

When the bank doesn't want your rolled coins.
