When you watch films, TV shows, and most of the cast look younger than you. Even weirder when it's something you watched a while back.

You're filling in a form online which asks for your date of birth and you get an error because you didn't think to put in what century you were born in. I was born in the previous millennium. You remember those good old days?

You start using the phrase 'back in my day' when talking about your school days/teens.

My memory is pretty bad, so can't actually recall taxi,
Hill street blues I recall, but then, Larry Carlton doing his thang on his geetar is memorable,
Also recall Rockford files music too, ~ guitar solo again,....
Ah,.. the 70's,.... when you got guitar solos on tv theme tunes
I even recall a news programme that had the rock band Mountain performing Nantucket sleighride at the start ffs

At a kids birthday party with a disco (my niece's. I don't just turn up at children's parties drunk and set fire to the dance floor. Not anymore.) and the only song I recognised was Gangnam Style. I found myself wondering whether this was the same song they'd been playing for the last half-hour because it sounds exactly the same. Music these days all sounds the same to me, not like in the good old days. Is this that Mrs Gaga who seems so popular with the kids these days? I think I heard one of her songs on the wireless once. Something about card games. Snap Face? Bridge Face? Ahhhhh! You old bastard!

But I guess pop music has always been derivative crap. In my day, during one of the wars, there was The Black Eyed Peas who I hated with a passion. I still listen to new music but none of that pop shit. Who's number one right now? Don't know, don't care. Should I hate Ed Sheeran? Don't know. Couldn't name one of his songs. I've always hated derivative pop shite but I used to know who I was hating. Who's this arsehole singing about sexy, sexy bodies to a bunch of 6 year olds? Who am I supposed to hate for this sonic diarrhea? I miss the good old days of hating Will I Am (Dick You Are). Pop music these days doesn't make me want to stab myself in the ear, it's just a dull noise.

When you have to check heel size when shoe shopping and deem anything over 4inches as completely unwearable.

Default Re: You know you're getting old when..

When the people who were famous when you were younger die and no-one under the age of about 30 has a clue who they are.

For example, I was saddened by Sean Hughes's passing at such a young age and especially from the effects of alcohol abuse which he'd done a lot to address in recent years. Sean always seemed like a sweet and gentle soul and I used to like seeing him in things. However, anyone under the age of 30 would've been like 'Who?'

When teens turn round and say they don't use facebook as it's 'old' and celebs for them often include vloggers.

I think it was the most watched tv mini series of all time (though I might be wrong) I was very young but my mum loved it.

I think I quite fancy Richard Chamberlain in his priest robes as well....
