    Riding in the back seat of my dad's Hudson Wasp, standing up and holding onto the cord that ran across the back of the front bench seat. Plenty of headroom to jump too. I wish I had that 1950 Hudson now.

    Oh boy, I’m sorry to say it, but they will now be coming fast and furious. Just do what I did with my lady, and tell her that they have her name on them. She won’t bring it up again. It worked for me

    I fly medivac helicopters for a living. Landed at a hospital the other day to drop a patient off with my crew. One of the male nurses asked me why i got into flying helicopters. I told him because i loved the show Airwolf. He just looked at me with the deer in the headlights look and said, what’s airwolf.. ugh Im old..

    You need to start adding these opening phrases to you conversations:

    1) a number of years ago...

    2) There used to be...

    3) in my younger days...

    4) this is probably before your time, but...

    You left out the classic...
    "Back in my day..."
    But then I suppose you have to be REALLY old for that one!

    #1263 25 days ago

    When I see a good looking girl and instead of saying I'd like some of that I find myself thinking if I were 30 years younger

    ... & we liked it.

    Quoted from dasvis:

    Yeah, and they don't make cars liked they used to. Used to be if the car was a convertible and the top got torn, then is was salvage yard curtains. 50,000 miles and you needed an engine overhaul. 60,000 miles and the transmission went out. In 3 years of being on the road the paint job was gone. And you were lucky the car was not a bucket of rust.

    Yeah, they don't make them like they used to. I sure do miss buying a car with 36 monthly payments only to watch the car self-destruct after that last payment was made

    I miss checkout lanes that are actually manned by people.

    Had to go to Home Depot today for a section of outdoor carpet to build a dog ramp. (Dog pinched a disk in its back, its getting old too ). Had the carpet cut, they gave me my price ticket, and I headed for the checkout. There were about half a dozen lanes where you can scan and go, but I needed the person this time due to my custom purchase. Apparently about five other people were in the same situation so we all waited patiently at the one lane manned by a cashier while the auto checkouts were all empty.

    Scan and gos are not all bad, I typically use the manned checkouts though as I know it keeps someone employed.

    Quoted from TractorDoc:

    I only go to stores that have self checkout if I can not get the item I need anywhere else. And then I try to avoid the self checkout unless it is the only option at the time.

    And you know you are getting old when you can remember when self checkout first started.

    And you are old if you remember when a CEO of a company only made 50 times what the worker made.

    Very sad that these days a lot of companies do not care much for their employees or customers, they only care about keeping investors happy.

    Went to a Rona (Canadian Big box hardware). During a week day, not on a weekend. They only had the self check out open. I looked around for a check out teller, walked back to the self check out area, and a store employee asked if I needed help. Told her, "If there are no tellers working I was just going to drop these 5 items on the counter and leave". She then grabbed my purchases, scanned them and asked for payment.

    The local Walmart is installing 12 self check outs.

    I would do the same thing.

    Tell me about it. It was great!!
    We had an auto parts store & a machine shop in the heyday of crappy cars. -- the good old days $$$$

    I like self-checkout, but my wife hates them.

    You know you're old when all the women starring in "MILF" videos are younger than you.

    you have to sit down on the side of the bed in order to take your pants off.

    And/or put your socks on.

    You put your socks on standing up?

    Sometimes. . . never thought much about it but I suppose I have good balance.

    I have always had good balance also. Only time I ever sit to put on socks is when knee pain is unbearable.

    You know you are old when?... Fart dust?
