So very true!!!! I find myself less willing to waste my time with toxic people.

I think getting older makes us realize just how precious time is and more unwilling to waste it on non-sense unless we want to be nonsensical

You know at any given moment how far away the nearest bathroom is.

My mind knows and thinks I'm the age I'm supposed to be but sadly, my body says otherwise.

You work and work to make the mouse pointer move until you realize your cell phone is not your mouse.

Ha ha, thats a good one, ya know I was sending a text message from the phone last night and then tried to edit it with the mouse. Sorry Charlie, that won't work.

Heres my contribution. Ya know when you sign up for a new email or something and you have to put the year you were born, and then scrolling and scrolling down to find your year. Thats when ya know you're getting old.

I would say getting older makes us realize just how precious time is. We think of the time lost, worry about the amount of time left, and hope the decline will be as gradual as Jack LaLanes.

Unfortunately, I no longer get asked for my "Senior Pass". Especially with young people, I just get waved in.

Nose picking... I see allot of old people dig in their nose without care of whose watching. Now it is typically old men but occasionally it's an old gal.

The first time a sales clerk asked me if I was eligible for a senior discount, I knew I was "getting older". And what made it so bad was that I had not yet reached that store's eligibility age.

When Judy and I go to the cinema, I always say "two senior tickets please." The sixteen
year old kid selling the tickets just glances at my white hair, and does'nt even look at my
OBVIOUSLY too young face........ Judy stands well away from me, as she says we'd never
get away with it, if the kid gets a look at her. "Oh yeah" I mutter very, very quietly under
my breath............
