Er, is this a "sympathise with FF" topic or a "state why you feel old" topic? Because I don't feel old, particularly. Razz

Being a 90s kid, I feel so so damn old. Aww!

jk, I really really don't. Although, looking for a suitable "90s kid so olddd" image unearthed this, which is a legitimate point...

It's a bit out of date, isn't it?

Also, obligatory "I remember when Pluto was a planet!" comment.

It'll be a feature on one of those "crazy computer facts" lists you see on Cracked and its ilk: "Did you know that icon for saving your files on word processors is based on an archaic data storage medium? Caaarazy!"

It's anything really. I was just surprised by the phone call as I'm 41 & didn't really think I was of the age that needed blood pressure checks.

Fair enough. Sorry about the "blood check" thing - it'll happen to us all, I suppose...

And agreed with ZJ on the music. Also on the "music".

Shanks has reminded me that I do have an old-people complaint I can make (apart from hooligans playing loud music, as expressed in the annoyance thread): back pain. If it ruins my spine when I sit slouched forward, why was my body designed so that it was comfortable? Mad

On a similar note, when TV shows use the sound effect of a vinyl record being stopped abruptly (used mostly in Britain's Got Talent and the X-Factor, from what I've seen of those shows), do 'young people' know what that sound is?

Vinyl is still us use in a few musical subcultures of The Young, I should imagine so.

I feel old when I still get ID'd and want to kiss the person at the till for insinuating that I look much younger than I actually am! Dance

Gone are the days when I would get crabbit when asked for ID.

Today's music makes me want to projectile vomit into the face of a nearby person. Mad

I guess that means I've crossed the invisible line at some point.

At the start of April I was shockingly ID'd in asda despite having a glorious beard, so I bought my drink in Morrisons instead. Smile

I think awesomedude is referring to the thread title... but I have no clue why people backing away from you is a sign of being old... Neutral

I think the oldest anyone's ever been when I asked for Id was about 26, which I don't think is too bad.

Funny story (not really):
When I'd not long finished school and I was 19 and working on the self service checkouts, this kid from my year at school went through and I didn't ask for any if, natch. So he says "aren't you gonna id me?"
So is said "no, I remember you from school"
And he says "what, because I'm black?"

I mean, how in the seven hells do I respond to that?
