I clip coupons now and will only buy items when they are on special. I'm also proud that I save more money at the grocery store than the items cost. I've turned into my mom.

you voluntarily get up on saturday and sunday at 6:30 or 7:00am . . . without an alarm clock.

you've stayed out really late if you are just getting home at midnight.

hahaha, I;ve done this a few times but cant stand to have the front pocking on the shirt sagging down, looks retarded.


and like lafta said (and I said on a previous page), some of you are letting yourselves get really old really early... I am 31 and dont do half this shit... you are only as old as you let yourself be... (my parents are in their 70s and still go out dancing and shit)

... when someone says "I'm getting ready to graduate" and you honestly can't tell if they mean high school or college.


... you're talking to someone entering college, and approx. 40% of your childhood references (music, movies, cartoons) are things they have never heard of.

Agreed, well unless you are so old that you are married, then I suppose that holds true

Unless you are marrying a 19 year old, in which case props to you, good luck with the divorce in a year so enjoy the sex while you can

I realized I was starting to get old when my doctor told me that my blood pressure was high and put me on a restrictive diet.

The next time I realized I was getting old was when I saw all these kids walking around wearing those zip up hoodie jackets that have all the dumb shit printed on them (like company logos or something). What the hell is that shit?

The next NEXT time I realized I was getting old was when I realized I try to show up and be a good uncle to stuff that's important for my nephew when I hear about it (showing up with family). Since when was I, of all people, a family man.

And even still, I'm not as old as a lot of you.

Shows with a lot of images jumping around get on my nerves. Kid's shows, MTV (whenever I somehow end up watching it), and even some news show.

^^ Yeah, the kids shows that are on nowadays have some weird subliminal shit that they didn't have when I was a kid. For instance, whatever that skater-themed show was on nickelodeon that started to become popular when I was in HS (I think), that show would randomly break away to a screen showing some sort of word you hear skaters say way the hell too much (stereotypically) and it would flash it on the screen with bright colors. I was trying to figure out if the show had a purpose but gave up.

Kids shows are just slowly becoming more efficient at turning your kids into marketing magnets.

You grew up in the city (Charlotte, Cary, Raleigh) and you get to a point where you want to learn about raising chickens, tending trees and how to build a house. I have no clue where to even start learning this stuff. Mostly the last two.

I went on this rant the other day about how my GF's newphews did not know how to re-intall their computers. They continue to get viruses that completely corrupt their computer (I am assuming from disreputable game or porn sites)/

I was all like "man back in the day if you were a kid that had their own computer at 12 years old you would have to know how to work the damn thing!!!!" When I was their age I could put one together, swap parts, and reload an OS.

Then I realized that I sounded like an old grandpa.

I guess I am failing at staying young. I do not know how to work a video game system newer than Nintendo 64, suck at rock band, and it totally trips me out that new video games have those headset things where you can actually talk to the people you are shooting at/with as if you were in combat and had radios.

I still burn CD's for my car because keeping my MP3's straight is too much of a PITA.

Last night at dinner with a friend I spent the whole time discussing mortgage rates and other stuff involved with buying a house. Then I went home and thought about budgeting money and taking advantage of my credit card's rewards program.

When I realized how boring and mundane it was a piece of me died.

I'm old enough to have a 19 year old daughter. And have a couple of friends who do.

Duke, 30? I remember my 30th birthday...I went out and got hammered with Beth and my friends Tripp and Elizabeth. When Beth and I got home, I proceeded to rail the hell out of her. After railing the hell out of her before we left the house. She was a wild one...and even SHE complained about me getting too wild. Dude, 30 ain't NUTHIN.

I have a little less than 2 years before I hit fucking 40
