I Knew I Was Getting Older When....

I started to notice service people calling me "Ma'am" instead of "Miss" 

When I heard a song I partied to in college on a classic rock station!


How did you know when you were getting older??

I realized I was old when people mistake me for my kids grandmother. That and it takes me a good 3 days to recover from driving half way across the country

OMGosh, YES!  When you suddenly hear what used to be considered edgy rock music on a commercial for something like cars and minivans it's so disheartening!

Oh wow!  I get 'mom' from students every once in awhile, but I haven't gotten 'Grandma' yet!  

Quoting Fayanne:

when my joints started getting stiff in the morning, or after sitting for a while.

and the day one of my students accidentally called me 'Grandma"

When "my" movie stars - Robert Redford, Meryl Streep, Jane Fonda started taking older roles.

When I heard a song on a classic station and thought --"That's not old!"

When I saw a classic movie on tv and could not believe that it was a classic movie!

That happened to me once when I went to the movies with a friend.  I insisted it was because HE looked old!  lol
