    You know you are old when you go to best buy to get an MP3 player and they laugh.
    Well to be fair I expected it and did phrase the question "do they still make MP3 players for us old pricks?"

    They had one tiny little section all the way at the back of the store with like 4 players.
    I don't care.
    I refuse to pay for one of those fancy phones.
    I kill every cell phone I get in under a year and I'm actually proud that my current one cost me five bucks. I crap you not. Five bucks. And I buy little cards and put minutes on them when I actually want to talk to anyone.

    BTW the player is for my commute on the bike.
    Now that it's cold I'm in the full helmet and some tunes will be nice.

    I'm the exact same. I've got a smart phone but the only time I use it for listening to music is when I'm shaving/showering(no plug sockets in UK bathrooms).
    I've got three different MP3 players and I use them all the time. Keep one in the bedroom locker full of classical and folk music. A larger capacity one of better quality, full of my favourite albums, that I use all the time. And one that I use for work, coved in paint(I'm a painter) with a cheap set of headphones that are also full of paint. Full of my 'get shit done tunes' like Metalica, Motorhead ACDC etc.

    You know you're getting old when you start noticing who colors their hair and who doesn't.

    This is turning into a "you know your getting old when...." thread.
    I'll play.

    You know you are old when you hear your favorite songs in an elevator.
    You know you are old when you’re told to slow down by your doctor and not the police.
    You know you are old when you’ve been diagnosed with CRS: Can’t remember shit.
    You know you are old when you stop searching for the meaning of life to focus on searching for your car keys.
    You know you are old when your brain cells are down to a manageable size.

    You know you are old when the lady at the hardware store gives you the senior discount without my even asking her about it. Thanks a lot, lady!

    Then you start asking for it everywhere you go. lol

    You know you're getting old when someone calls you at 9pm and says "I didn't wake you did I?"

    You know your getting old when you want to rip through your workouts with the intensity & furiousity that makes the entire gym stop and watch at some point but instead are forced to workout at the pace of a mere mortal due to continuous nagging injuries.

    Simple: when you're old:):):)
    My daddy (RIP Frank) used to say:
    "Son, old doesn't exist...you were just born before someone else!":):)
    You know what, he was right.

    I don't even own cell phone,....I'm with Miss Magic,....they're just a tracking device. I call cell phones "Electronic Tethers" I don't want to be reached 24-7, sometimes I just want to hide from everyone. And most importantly, my work can't reach me 24-7. :heheh:
