We were at Oktoberfest last weekend having a ball. Beer was flowing, everybody happy; great food and music.
The band was rocking, and on their break I went up to chat gear with their guitarist, whose tone was excellent.
The band launched into a polka, and as I'm walking back to my table, a 30 year old hottie asks me if I like to dance. I'm thinking, yeah I still got it.
I confidently said "you betcha".
She says "great, my Mom's been wanting to dance all night"

Gulp

"I would be delighted to dance with your Mother".

And I did.

I checked my phone for text from my wife while checking out at the grocery store. The teenager at the register said that it was cool that someone my age texted. I was programming computers when her parents were teenagers.

Lady walks by me the other day at the Mercedes dealer and says, "I just love your hair." I'm thinking, cool, let the flirting begin, then she says "I just love grey hair on men, can't wait till my husband is old enough to get some grey."
Ouch.:faint:

Should have told her that she could see you on the side and have the best of both worlds. If she looks intrigued, have fun, if not laugh it off like you where kidding.

Mine was actually a couple months ago. I'm at a concert with the Mrs and all the sudden somebody is jumping on me giving me a hug. I see blonde hair, I look and see tanned legs wrapped around me..... She jumps down and I realize it's my best friends niece. The actual only baby I have ever held in my life. We chat for a minute about how she just graduated HS and is starting college.....

I'm 50 and working on lifestyle changes and getting in shape. I'm taking it real easy.

I had my left shoulder MRI'd for moderately annoying chronic symptoms with a diagnosis of osteoarthritis and some tearing with nothing really to be done to repair. This sucks. I want repair, not pain meds that will let me injure it more. I had some hyaluronic acid injected, but it doesn't seem to have helped much. My new ortho doctor isn't keen on platelet rich plasma therapy. He seems like a good doctor and we will be working on options.

I have a great family doctor now. Did all kinds of blood tests. My testosterone was low. I'm one month now on Androjel and it has done wonders for my mood and energy. My old doctor knew my T was low and did nothing. Don't settle on mediocre, do nothing doctors.

Sorry, guys. It's a (hopefully) long slide and you just have to get used to the fact that hot young women just aren't interested. Get over it. But if you look around and pay attention to the real world, you will find yourself in the middle of a garden of wonderful ladies (probably close to your own age) who totally understand and appreciate everything that's important to you. God has provided what you need - grow up and enjoy your life.

For me, it happened when I was 38 (I'm 53 now). I was a Senior Master Sergeant (E-8) in the USAF. I needed to investigate a mishap and went to the base photo lab to pick up a photographer to video document the mishap. He was an 18 year-old Airman Basic just out of Tech School. As we chatted in the truck he told me that his father was a 38 y/o Senior Master Sergeant. All of a sudden things got dark and sort of tunnel visiony.

Mrs. LTB and I never had any children, so I never felt like I was getting old watching them grow up.

My second big event was just this past week when my mother told me that a younger cousin that I baby sat when I was a teenager and she was an infant is going to be a grandmother. Good grief!

I was 40 and went to dinner with my mother. The waitress asked me what my "wife" wanted to drink.
I dyed my hair the next day and everyone I knew just laughed at me.

Rocking. . . polkas. If you weren't sure from the 30 yr old babe, you can be sure when you claim to hear a rockin polka. . . and know how to dance to it. (Nestor excluded, BTW.)

What were you playing?

A polka. :rofl:

I'm blessed with my mom's hair. I'm headin to 44 soon and still look 30-something. At 40, my dad looked 50. At 50, he looked 60. At 60, he looked 70. At 72, he still looks 70. I'm betting he had a few "wow yer old" moments before his time. (He also acted old at 40. The goofy things I do with my kids. . . never did my dad do anything near that.)

Now comes the really sad part: I went to a bar and started to talk to an 18 year old guy because he was a friend of a friends friend.. or whatever. After some minutes he says to my best friend and me : I want to be as cool when I am your age.





I AM 29!

I was going to say the first time, I said "Twenty years, I..." but after reading this thread, maybe I haven't had it yet, but it sure seems like it when the guys I hang out with are 10-15 years younger than me and they're hitting on women who were born when I getting my driver's license.

I'm sorry but God that SUCKS!!:rofl:

I got a similar backhanded comment from my young cousin's girlfriend when she was 17.

She said I was cute, because she liked Kevin Costner and Sean Connery. Kevin Costner is 15 years older then me and Sean Connery is almost double my age :steamed:

At a local bar/grill with a couple buddies a couple years back, and for whatever reason, the place is Packed.

A couple super-attractive college girls are wandering around looking for a place to sit, and we invite them to take the extra space at our booth 'till another table comes free.

We all chat a bit, and at the end, the two girls are smiling at me, leaning forward, flirting, and one pushes a slip of paper across to me, with a huge smile, and says 'We'd love it if you'd call us sometime! SOOON, OK?'

My buddies are shocked, wondering what magic I have worked to get these girls so worked up and ready to rock?

I'm all humble, and point out that while I'd never cheat on my wife, it's good to know that beautiful women still want me, and I'm not sure which one of them I'd pick anyhow, but perhaps in a pinch I'd look at dating them both (were I single) etc.

I then look at the slip of paper, and it says 'Ashley & Stephanie - great babysitters! We'd love to watch your kids!' and their phone number.

I'd successfully picked up a babysitter for my pre-school children.

Sigh.

I recently took my 14 year old daughter to a diner for breakfast. A couple tables away was a local mom and her kids. My daughter was a summer camp counselor for one of the kids, so they stopped by our table to say hi as they were leaving. The mom, who was my age, asked my daughter is I was her older brother!

Too bad the only women who pay attention to me are older and heavier than my ego would like!

I was in my mid 20's and an undergrad in college this was in the 80's and I carried my stuff around in a brief case. I found it easier to handle than a backpack. A student came up to my girlfriend at the time and wanted to know if she had taken any of my classes and was I a tough professor.

At 37 I pulled into the Long John Silvers drive through and placed my order, the girl gave me the total and I drove around to the window. She comes up to the window looks at me turns around and goes to the register makes a few entries and comes to the window. I have the correct amount ready to hand her and she says, oh it's changed honey I gave you your senior discount.

When I was 43 I walked into a pawn shops jewelry section with my little girl who was 9 or 10 at the time she wanted to go in there. One of the ladies starts chatting with us as my daughter is looking at ear rings and proceeds to ask my daughter if her grandpa is going to buy her some ear rings. I said she's my daughter. Oh, sorry dear.

I am 46 now and my youngest brother who is in his late 30's takes some clothes and other items to a local charitable organization for donation that I also donate to frequently and they ask him if he wants the forms to take for a charitable deduction and he says sure and they ask his name. He tells them his name and the lady responds oh we know your dad and give my name, he comes in here all the time with stuff. My brother just grins, accepts the tax info. and then proceeds out the door to laugh his butt off and then find me to aggravate.

For the record what hair I have left is nearly white at 46 and my nickname is Gramps...

My mom...in her 60s folks call us "Mr. and Mrs. Gallium".

My wife...I took my wife to the OBYGN when she got knocked up, we are there with the rest of the boys, the eldest was a recent teenager. The nurse comes out, looks at us (4-5 of us), and then begins addressing my wife and teenager as Mr./Mrs. Gallium.

Funny thing is, when I shave and wear "young people clothes" (jeans or cargo pants/etc), people think I am no older than 30.

The last young guy to talk smack about me being old was my Marine son in law. I challenged him to put on some boxing gloves and join me in the back yard whenever he wants to call me old or make fun of sailors again. He still hasn't taken me up on that. When my kids call me old man I just tell them that I'll challenge them to a run or any type of physical fitness test and see who's old.

I'm 43 with a little grey hair and a grey goatee, and in the best shape of my life. In fact, this morning I noticed that I can just start to see the outline of my six pack abs. A year and a half ago I was fat, overstressed, and had daily back pain. Now the back pain is gone but the knees hurt, which is my reminder that I'm getting older.

I must be doing something right. I overheard my fiance talking to her best friend the other day and heard her friend say that her 19 year old daughter thinks I'm hot, and my fiance said that another friend's daughter said the same (both girls are beautiful!). My head got so big I almost fell over. It doesn't really matter except it made me feel good. Its not like I'm going to get a chance (or take that chance) to knock boots with the daughters of people I know.

It was at www.gasthausbavarianhunter.com

The beer is great, the festival is fun with great music. The food in the restaurant is America's idea of German food- really heavy: frozen spaetzle, instant potatoes and over-priced schnitzel.
It's a fun place to go for dinner with a group. The beer and creepy strolling accordion chick make up for the poor food.

I'm old and I get a kick out of people that say they forgot something that was "on the tip of their tongue" so they must be a sign of old age.

I tell them that forgetting things is not a sign of old age, it's a sign that you have many other things more important to think about.

I also mention that I, for most of my life, I have been very forgetful. Since I have always been forgetful, it cannot be a sign of Alzheimer's or age, just preoccupation.

A real senior moment is when you forget you have a bed date with a 20 year old. It sometimes is also called "fortuitous amnesia".

My first one was when my favorite metal album became a classic. Then I did the smart thing and married a 24 yr old, I'm 32, and talking child hood schools everything with her is "oh my god your old" comment.
Then the realization that I've involved in one way or another with one of my hobbies for over 20 yrs does not help. Couple that with my 8 yr old who seems to think that, nevermind that I do weighted pull ups, bench 300lbs and squat over double my body weight, that I'm to old and decrepit to play at the park with him.
You reading that makes me very glad I have thick skin.

My OLD moment came when a Surgical nurse was prepping me for a minor surgery.
As she was setting up to insert an IV,she asked me about the scar on my arm.
I told her that was long ago when i used to build race cars and got cut by a piece of sheet metal I was installing.
She said "Oh, you might know my Brothers,they used to race too".
She mentioned the names,and yes ,I knew them very well.
THEN I remembered HER!
I asked "Do you remember me?"
She says "No"
I say "That's good,that means I'll get up after the surgery is done"
She asked "Why is that?"
I told her"Because when you were a little girl,we gave you SUCH a bad time when you were hanging out in your brothers garage with us,and we did all sorts of cruel jokes to you."
She thought a while as she got the IV into me,then,smiling at me,she said "Now I remember you,You were so bad in those days,but you always bought me ice cream at the racetrack and I really looked foward to that on race days!

I woke up in recovery alive and intact,she was there and we laughed about the old days!

NO WAY!

I'm at a UPS satellite store, not a main branch by the way, and the girl behind the counter starts giving me a hard time about not being able to use a company account number for mailing out stuff from her office's location, but at first, she does it in generic kind of way. After a couple verbal interactions, I'm thinking she's had a bad day, so at the best of my utmost ability, I placate her acerbic tone with couple humorous colloquialisms based on the situation, and then offer several choices as possible solutions.

I realize she ain't buying it, and asked her what she would suggest. OUCH! Then starts a 1 minute diatribe of policy and how cooperate people think accounts are so important to UPS. I finely interrupt her somewhere in the middle of of it all, and just out and ask, "What the **** is your problem?!?!?! Do I know you?!? Do you think you know me? Has my company done anything to get you into trouble?!? Why are you so ******* temperamental?!?" She laughs and says, "Yeah, I knew I recognized you, your name's *****, and you dated my Mom, *******, back in the **'s." What the heck!?! She was right.... Oops, small world... :embarassed:


Ended up getting the thing shipped for free and an old life chapter closed.

At 52, I pick my battles wisely and starting one in a bar packed with college kids is not wise. HH

What were you playing?

One day it dawned on me that my favorite songs are "classic rock", I don't know any of the songs on the "new rock" radio station and I don't like them either. That was the first time I felt old.

The second time I felt old was when I realized that I (1) get up early no matter what, (2) I watch documentaries and the news, and often yell at the TV, and (3) I complain about the price of stuff, usually comparing "it" to what "it" cost 20 years ago.

When I get called "Sir".I'll be 42 in 2 months and I get mad when I don't get called sir! Being addressed as dude, man or guy by some 18 year old just chaps my can!

I never play my '72 Precision at bars. I only played it at weddings until they too, got out of control. HH

I made it past the 55 threshold and thought I was doing okay. Then my wife comes home from the bank and informs me that she changed our checking account to an "old goat" account, meaning we got free checking, free travelers checks, etc.

Couple of weeks ago I was having lunch and a young (early 20's) waitress comes by my table with the coffee pot.
Without asking, she tops my cup off and even before I got "thank you"out of my mouth, she says "my Grandpa likes his coffee to be really hot and I thought you like it that way too"!:steamed::crying::supergrin::rofl:

I was talking with my 12 year-old Stepdaughter last week about cameras and when I started talking about different types of film, she went blank and asked what camera film was.

I felt older than King Tut's farts.

Hell, that's ten years before they say, "We want to run a camera up that vertical smile."

When I was getting ready for my first colonoscopy,the Doc said " Don't worry,it's only about the diameter of a finger,But,it's marked off in FATHOMS"

Don't you just love medical humor??

Well to be fair, that mix crosses a broad spectrum. So at any given moment she might not have known the particular song Gramps and the Gray Beards were playing :)

Well I'm 61 today and glad to make it this long,( had a minor stroke in August). Anyway I was at Mickey D's a few months ago to get coffee and the kid said that will be 62 cents, or some thing like that, can't really remember. I said I thought it was a dollar he says "senior discount". He might have been 18, at least he didn't say sir.

My mother was living in a retirement home and changing apartments and I was helping her move. One of the other residents asked me if I was moving in.
