When you start referring to people in their 20's as "the young people"

When you suddenly need double the amount of coffee you did before to wake up in the morning.

When hangovers last two or three days.

When you're a zombie making idiotic mistakes at work over and over just because you got two hours less sleep than you need.

When you find your first grey pube.

When you start thinking everything was just better in the 80s/90s.

When a cup of tea and a bar of chocolate is infinitely more appealing than having sex.

When mostly everything that people under the age of about 21 say irritates the shit out of you.

When you become genuinely interested in Antiques Roadshow and going antiquing at the weekend.

When jazz and classical becomes the only music you can stick, everything else just grates and sounds dumb.

You try to sit cross legged (like school assembly) and your hips feel like they will pop out of joint!

Hairs grow on your face, nipples and belly button.
Your eyebrows grow wild more regularly.
Your toenails are harder to cut.

Is complaining a thing you do when you old ? I never used to complain , but i’ve written about four ‘strongly worded emails’ in the last month .

^ I'm already at that point

In my 20's I'd eventually try and get something sorted

Now I just tank up on painkillers and accept this is about it

It's all a bit grim this getting old malarkey.

I can sympathise with this but would modify it slightly to about 80-90% of what people under the age of 21 say. There is always the 10% that is interesting or entertaining.

I was listening to a group of teenage girls on the train at the weekend. This was the conversation.

Girl A: "I love jam."
Girl B: "I hate jam.".
Girl C: "I love jam and I love peanut butter and I love marmite."
Girl D: "Jam is rank."
Girls A and D:"Noooo."
Girl E: "Oh My God."
Girl B: "Why are we talking about jam?"
All the girls then giggled like mad for about 20 seconds.

In case you were wondering, this fits into the 10-20% that doesn't irritate me.

Another one I've not heard of bites the dust! I feel young again.

Not really, I still feel like a grumpy, boring middle-aged person. Who is still treated as a teenager in some ways, which is REALLY confusing, because if I was a teenager now I'd have grown up in a different time with different experiences and expectations and no internet. But hopefully that will soon end. 20 years ago really does feel like a long time ago and like yesterday at the same time. Getting older is weird.
