What are you too old for?

Reddit top voted comments....

Asking to use the restroom at work.

Party like a rock star and still be expected to get up the next day and function at all.

Pub crawls. You find a pub, it's warm and comfy, you have somewhere to sit, and in an hour you have to get up and walk somewhere. Normally the second place won't have any seats. I'd rather just find a place and stick with it.

Drinking heavily on a Friday night. I only get 2 days off a week, and I'll be buggered if I'm going to spend them feeling like crap.

Negativity from so called friends. People who just can't be happy for other people and their achievements, and treat such things like direct competition.

A newer Clinton entering the political fray.

Over the hill hippies still trying to get their way and wanting to impose it on everybody else.

I don't know if this makes me old exactly but guys on the cell phone while saunaing annoyed me. Yea, maybe I'm getting too old.

A friend of mine is an LA Fitness member and he is allowed to bring in a guest.

I am too old to date a redhead 20 years my junior. When I figured out that she was born the year after I got married and technically I am old enough to be her father, well, all I can say is I had a good run.

Saunas should be a no talking zone.

I am going to call you Sixty Polanski from now on.

Sixty Grit said...

You do understand that she is nearly 50, right? So, no.

Rabel said...

So, Sixty, my friend, you don't have Red's phone number handy do ya?

Sixty Grit said...

LOL! I do - and I was just over at her place yesterday. Next time I see her I'll tell her you say "Hey!"

Putting up with drama queen tantrums.

I don't have time for that shit. I don't have the patience to ignore it either and will gladly tell them to shove it. I don't need people like that around me.

I'm too old to go play with random kids in the neighborhood. Like, lets go build a fort, or find some creatures in the woods.

The other day there were some old mattresses out by the dumpster- and I was like "score! forts and wrestling!". Then I kept on walking because I don't know any kids here.

I did get heckled by two small boys for money yesterday! I asked if they were seriously out here begging. YES, he said. I recall that age, and I would ask people for money too- just to see if they would. I told them NO- but I'll teach you music for free! Go ask your parents.

I was sort of kidding, but in retrospect I wish I'd actually given them business cards. Lets make a deal- one month free music lessons as long as you take it seriously. I'm sure I'll see them again...

You make an interesting point Steg. In this day and age a man can't talk to a child without being in a lot of trouble. You just can't do it. You were very smart telling them to ask their parents. But don't be surprised if you don't get a visit from the cops if a parent takes it the wrong way.

We have been lucky that we get a lot of really young babies in the store now that we sell nursing bras. One baby that came in was only three days old. I was freaking out. They never used to take kids out of the house that early back in the day.

It is a new freaking world.

I'm too old to exercise, but I have to do it because I don't want to be too old in becoming a fat fuck. You don't see obese 80 year olds (i'm not 80). You know, because they never make it that long because they are FAT FUCKS!!!

Steg said...

I hear ya Trooper. It is what it is, I guess. Once people get to know me it's all good, but I welcome the scrutiny and I would be taken aback if parent's DIDN'T.

Meth, two of my grandparents were some 300+ pounds at 84ish. Motorized chairs, the chair lift up the stairs, blegh. They actually won some 4 million on a lottery one time so they did whatever they wanted.

Pro tip: win the lottery. :P

It's amazing how many people comment on how to take care of infants when they have never care of them in the first place
It's an old wives tale that new born babies should be kept indoors. If the baby is healthy why not take them outside .
