50 signs that you're getting old.

Hmm....


  1. Feeling stiff: No
  2. Groaning when you bend down: sometimes
  3. Saying “it wasn’t like that when I was young”: Quite often
  4. Saying “in my day”: Quite often, but shit changes much faster by now.
  5. Losing hair: been like that since my early 20s.
  6. You don’t know any songs in the top ten: Sure I do...of the 1990s.
  7. Getting more hairy – ears, eyebrows, nose, face etc: And I who thought that it must be my mediterranean masculinity at work.
  8. Hating noisy pubs: Yup :-/
  9. Talking a lot about joints / ailments: sometimes
  10. Forgetting people’s names: This actually happens to me a lot if I don't make a conscious effort to remember, but it's always been like that. Maybe it's because I'm a selfish bastard.
  11. Choosing clothes and shoes for comfort rather than style: I dress pretty much like Indiana Jones, minus the hat, yes.
  12. Thinking policemen / teachers / doctors look really young: Policemen are usually fit for their age, if they don't end up behind a desk. But teachers/doctors? Seen my share of slobs/fat fuckers among them.
  13. Falling asleep in front of the TV: if I'm tired or the programming is shite.
  14. Needing an afternoon nap: Yeah
  15. Finding you have no idea what young people are talking about : what young people?
  16. Struggling to use technology: not my problem, luckily. I can use anything from a R/C helicopter to Reel-to-Reel recorder. Unless not having a FB/Twatter account qualifies as "not using technology", nowadays.
  17. Losing touch with everyday technology such as tablets and televisions: can't do that even if I wanted, but does "losing touch" mean not being aware of internet memes or fads?
  18. When you start complaining about more things: maybe there are more things to complain about ;-)
  19. Wearing your glasses around your neck: did that as a kid, looked nerdy, I stopped.
  20. Not remembering the name of any modern bands: I bet the Beatles and Supertramp are still together.
  21. You avoid lifting heavy things due to back concerns: not afraid, but apply common sense (usually).
  22. Complaining about the rubbish on television these days: I complain about the rubbish on television these days.
  23. Misplacing your glasses / bag / keys etc: that's why I use bulky keychains.
  24. You move from Radio one to Radio Two: I switch between favourite oldies stations.
  25. You start driving very slowly: no.
  26. Preferring a night in with a board game than a night on the town: make that a video game/movie/tinkering/DIY and I'm game.
  27. Taking a keen interest in The Antiques Road Show: I prefer visiting real antique stores.
  28. You talk to colleagues who are so young they don’t know what an Opal Fruit is: my colleages are all around my age.
  29. Taking slippers to friends’ houses: I always do bring my slippers with me when travelling.
  30. Listening to the Archers: no idea
  31. Falling asleep after one glass of wine: make that three glasses of Bulgarian Black Ram whiskey, and we might have something here.
  32. Never going out without your coat: of course, where am I going to keep my wallet and other shit?
  33. Getting bed socks for Christmas and being very grateful: socks do wear out.
  34. When you can’t lose six pounds in two days any more: ...can you even do that without dehydrating and shitting yourself to death?
  35. Gasping for a cup of tea: espresso coffee or nothing, hombre.
  36. Taking a flask of tea or coffee on a day out: I actually tried that in my early 20s, when going to uni. More of an encumbrance, really.
  37. Joining the WI: huh?
  38. Taking a keen interest in the garden: sure, I like dumping vegetable leftovers and other crap in my "garden".
  39. Spending more money on face creams / anti-ageing products: meh...though I admit I spend a "lot" on razors/blades/aftershaves. Always cheap nasty stuff though.
  40. Spending money on the home / furniture rather than a night on the town: staying in is easier and economical.
  41. Taking a keen interest in dressing for the weather: well, I don't want to be caught wearing sandals or sneakers on a rainy day.
  42. Putting everyday items in the wrong place: there's no such thing as a "wrong place" in my house.
  43. Obsessive gardening or bird feeding: I just throw out whatever shit the neighborhood cats will eat, but not in my "backayard".
  44. Really enjoying puzzles and crosswords: actually crosswords and rebuses piss me off. I prefer Sudokus.
  45. Always driving in the slow lane, or below 70 in the middle lane: I prefer driving at optimal cruising speed in the right lane. Fuel costs!
  46. Consider going on a ‘no children’ cruise for a holiday: I prefer 'no children" pretty much anything.
  47. Your ears are getting bigger: is this even medically correct?
  48. Joining the National Trust: huh?
  49. Drinking sherry: I can't stand sweet liquors in general.
  50. Feeling you have the right to tell people exactly what you are thinking even if it isn’t polite: I do so with close down-to-ground friends, but not when I might expect a stomping in response :-p


Now the "scoring":



Results
1 - 20 - You're young at heart but secretly love crosswords and use anti-ageing products just in case.
20 - 35 - You've started taking your tea in a flask out with you and can't stand Radio 1. Stay away from the sherry to keep feeling young.
35 - 50 - Now you have most of the ageing signs it's time to accept you probably aren't just growing old - you are old. Enjoy being warmer than everyone around you and tell them so.



Conservatively I'd say I'm in the 20-35 zone. I'm in my early 30s. OK, let's see how you other DW old farts & fuckers fare.

11 for me, or thereabouts (and in my 40s). Some of them were things I did just as much when I was younger. For example, I'm probably better now at remembering names (but still dreadful).

Without even looking at the link, I knew this had to be from a British source, and the stuffy old Telegraph didn't come as a surprise. Who else would even mention the Archers?

My "yes" for number 41 is more a product of moving from the UK to Minnesota than anything else. The result of not dressing for the weather here is death. The UK is one place where you can pretty much ignore the weather and feel no more than discomfort for the most part.

I had actually seen that on a Greek on-line newspaper a couple of months ago, and saw variations of it with (usually) less or rearranged questions exist, as well as more "localized" versions.

If anything, I feel that the "test" proves more about how solitary or conservative one might be, rather than how old.

I guess I was old in my (pre)teens, since I've been doing some of this stuff for as long as I can remember.

We need a "51. You play a 20 years old video game" point, but I guess this might fall in 3. and 4. too.

I keep telling myself 30 is the new 20. And in a lot of ways it is. Since most people don't start a family anymore until they are in their early thirties.

I don't need a quiz to tell me I'm getting old, but with a score around 16-20 (have no idea who the Archers are and can't stand the taste of sherry) it looks like I haven't yet joined the ranks of the grumpy old men.


43. Obsessive bird feeding
What choice have I when they park themselves on the doorstep and demand to be fed.

On a side note, my joints feel very stiff today. Maybe I slept weird.

uh, the inclination to answer 50 retarded questions means not only are you old, but also tragically have nothing better to do.

edit: o the telegraph. Well, the median age of their readership is bound to be hip and young and groovy and not fecally incontinent. My mistake entirely.

I scored 15. I should note that some of these are either things I've done all my life, or are legitimate concerns that have nothing to do with getting old (e.g. TV IS 90% shit, has always been 90% shit, and I don't care what anyone says to the contrary). Others, admittedly, are just features of being 30 and not a teenager.

Heh... I've got it worse. I actually work in a high school and still get asked if I'm a student (and I'm turning 30 this month). Part of me is flattered, but damn it's hard to act as an authority figure when you're constantly being mistaken for a student. Honestly, it's like half the reason I have a beard.

Yeah its tough to be an authority figure when you look the same as people. Maybe you need to have a badge for something. Just tell people you're an undercover narc like 21 Jump Street.

I know at parties people ask if I want a beer or something and kids will speak up saying he can't drink, he's not old enough....

I have a badge, actually. Strangely, it doesn't seem to matter much, as staff badges look a lot like student badges where I work.

Really though, to be honest, I have no real problem dealing with students - my problem is when other staff members I don't know mistake me for a student. There's just something weird about, say, helping a kid in a wheelchair and having a coworker coming at you and bitching about how you're not qualified to help that kid, even though that's the whole reason you're there (yeah, that exact scenario has happened to me on several occasions). Sure, I get it, the person may not know me, I may look like a student, but for crying out loud, I have an ID card that I attach to my shirt.

Sorry for going on so long, and I suppose it's not really a big deal, but it just annoys me when people interrupt me from doing my job because they think I'm a student. I mean, I get it, I understand you wouldn't want a high school student doing my job, you want someone with qualifications and experience, but argh, if I was a high school student, I wouldn't be trying to do this in the first place.

It all just adds to the conversation. Sometimes people overlook the obvious. There could also even be staff meetings people see you at, but I guess overall since you're larger than your badge they focus on you more than the badge. My HS used to have staff wear not uniforms, but school designated clothing. Like they had to wear logos or colors that identified them as staff. But it was only every Friday, because other schools would come for games and they wanted the visitors to know staff from students. We had a few hairy students that looked like they were 40.

Feels full of shit that quiz. Like the first one, I am already stiff like iron bar, goddammit. And only 22. Or 43. I don't feed birds in summer, but in winter, I'll happily put some seeds in bird feeder. Or part 22. Fuck, there's already full of shit in TV. I just look backside of the paper to see if there's anything interesting coming up. Usually ends in "Nope, nothing interesting" - phrase.

'Sides, we will wither away, one day or another. Why bother to answer these questions, when the inevitable is coming, in few decades?

I'm 16 and I scored 8. Now tell me if you think I'm being sarcastic.

Guilty as charged:
01: Yes. Being away from physical exercise does make me stiff when I stay in for extended periods of time.
06: Which country? Nothing in the western hemisphere for me.
08: Pubs?
15: I play Doom, people. I do believe I can handle myself pretty well for my age, and I choose not to associate with many people.
18: When are we NOT complaining? yer grammer suks
20: I don't listen to "bands," but rather to "circles."
22: I don't have television service. and I don't watch any shows on the internet.
34: Puberty stretched me out vertically. 30 pounds in two years...close enough?


We need a "51. You play a 20 years old video game" point, but I guess this might fall in 3. and 4. too.

This bumps my score up to 9.

How many of the 50 signs of getting old apply to you?
1. Feeling stiff- no
2. Groaning when you bend down - no
3. Saying “it wasn’t like that when I was young” - yes
4. Saying “in my day” - yes
5. Losing hair -no
6. You don’t know any songs in the top ten –Never really cared
7. Getting more hairy – ears, eyebrows, nose, face etc - yes
8. Hating noisy pubs –Always did
9. Talking a lot about joints / ailments – Feeling like I’m getting arthritis in my right hand. Granted I’m on a PC most of the time.
10. Forgetting people’s names – was never good with names.
11. Choosing clothes and shoes for comfort rather than style- Yes
12. Thinking policemen / teachers / doctors look really young- not really
13. Falling asleep in front of the TV – always did
