    Finish the sentence.

    I know I’m getting old when absolutely nobody I work with knows what “the San Francisco treat” refers to. :rolleyes:

    I just watched a young couple scooting down the road on a couple of hover boards,
    and their young child (maybe 3 or 4) was riding a tiny E-Bike, and I wondered "what's the world coming to?"

    And it still has the phrase on the side of the box. Pre-pandemic, the cable cars still advertised the stuff. I haven't been back to SF yet.

    You know you're getting old when you hurt yourself sleeping.

    You know you're old when you've been married longer than the age of the kids coming out of college.

    I walked into a group conversation in the company kitchen. A few guys roughly my age were talking with a punk kid co-worker...who claims he did not know who Jimmy Buffet is.

    Here’s a weird thought I had today: when I was a kid, many, many of the older guys in my neighborhood were WWII vets. But right now, it is the same period of time back to WWII , as the period of time from WWII to the Civil War! 77+- years for both.
    Wonder if vets from WWII said, “when I was a kid, many civil war vets lived in my neighborhood "?

    ...when your student tries to steer on the ground using the ailerons, and you slap his hand and say "It uses the rudders or it gets the hose again!"
    ...and then, reflecting on your brilliant joke, you think to yourself "I am the funniest person at this airport!"
    ...and then realize that your student was born a few years after that movie came out, has a strange expression on his face, and probably is thinking "Help, I'm trapped in an airplane with a crazy person..."

    I'm so old I can remember when HP made great stuff.

    And I can remember when "Made In Japan" was a pejorative.
