    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.

    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...

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

    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:

    ... & we liked it.

    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

    #1266 11 months ago

    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.

    #1267 11 months ago
    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.

    Quoted from TractorDoc:

    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.

    Quoted from Darcy:

    Told her, "If there are no tellers working I was just going to drop these 5 items on the counter and leave"

    I would do the same thing.

    Tell me about it. It was great!!

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

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

    #1279 10 months ago

    And/or put your socks on.

    You put your socks on standing up?

    #1281 10 months ago
    Quoted from joemagiera:

    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?

    I still keep real maps in my car....I'm not sure what is scarier, that I have used them still or that there are generations that don't even know how to.
    Can you even still get free state maps at visitors centers etc?

    They had all sorts of State, county and city maps at the visitors center in Joplin MO. on I-44 when I went there two years ago.

    I just found out I'm no spring chicken anymore. Taking a shower even sober, I just slipped and ate shit in the tub. No slip surface, my ass. First time ever.

    The damage from the nozzle that spared me the time I cracked my head, just paid me back in the left back of my ribcage. lol.

    I'm fine. Just feeling old that I actually lost my footing.

    Funny guy!

    I suppose if my hair wasn't so long, I wouldn't be using that conditioner that caused the fall in the first place.

    Reminds me of the time I was just about done stuccoing the last window of my house and came down the ladder and stepped on the hose nozzle that dropped me into a wheelbarrow full of stucco which proceeded to tip over and almost break my arm.

    Same as today, at the time I was sure there was more damage than actually happened.

    Quoted from wolverinetuner:

    For one glorious moment it was.

    A wheel barrow full of stucco is kind of heavy. Drop my ass into it and it gets even heavier.

    #1291 10 months ago

    You know you are old when you actually look for maintenance that needs to be done to the house, and then do it yourself.

    Are you sure you did not slip on one of those scrubby poof things?

    I remember back in simpler times when there was a bar of soap and the stuff in the bottle was to wash your hair.
    Now the shower shelves are full of all shapes/sizes/descriptions of bottles. . . I imagine part of that comes with having a spouse though.

    #1293 10 months ago

    Anyone else remember "soap on a rope"?

    #1294 10 months ago
    Quoted from TractorDoc:

    My fault for not buying more Comet when I ran out a couple weeks ago. The only thing I think about when going to the grocery store is food.

    *Plastic* bottles now - remember when we had glass bottles in the shower?!? Although, honestly, I don't ever remember one getting broken...

    You might not be old yet, but you are getting older if you can remember those hand held pocket TVs Radio Shack use to sell. All of them complete with an antenna and a fuzzy screen when reception was poor.

    And nowadays, it is YouTube on an iPhone with very clear pictures.

    You order a meal in a restaurant and when it is placed in front of you your first inclination is to eat it rather than take a photo of it.
