It has not been that long ago, I was the hot 40 year old dating these younger men....how did 7 years change so much? I think I need a make over....
Lol, I work in similar situation and have experienced similar, it is good to see someone else out there with these same thoughts...
Jane, it could be worse. I work with some young people who think I’m cool and fun, BUT some of my customers who are considerably older than I am think I’m at least a decade older than I am!! That always depresses me.
I feel old at times, but it has nothing to do with the people I work with ....LOL
It’s the aches and pains. Besides try dropping off your daughter at a high school function and lookng at damn 17 year old girls all firm and fit...and full of energy laughing and giggling like there is no tomorrow!
Besides saying you remind him of his mom’s best friend is not necessarily bad...remember Stifler’s Mom on American Pie...LOL
Yeah I agree with you 3sa...the aches and pains have begun slightly and the little strays of gray are appearing but by golly I refuse to let that damper my youthful spirit
Yep, I can relate! I worked with a lot of wonderful younger people at my last job. We got along so well that I sometimes forgot the age difference. Until someone would announce their dad’s birthday - and he was YOUNGER than me! LOL!
Jane, read my blog from yesterday about aging women - it was a real eye-opener for my view of myself as “old“.
Age is just a number, and the age you feel mentally is what matters. Hang in there and stay young every day!
I know age is just a number, but when I get the yes “mam” from one of my employess, I tell them I will respond to Bitch first....lol....he laughed. Then later told me he would go to the mechanic with me so they would not take advantage of me and tell them I was his aunt.....OMG, 5-7 years ago, he and I would’ve been “doing it” outside of work....lol (not if I was his mgr tho, never crossed that line. 3SA you remember.....those days for me.... lol
LOL. Yeah, i’ve had that happen. I worked with some recent college grads a couple years ago who considered me a bit ancient and worldly. It’s funny to go from the ‘young woman’ in the office to the ‘middle aged woman’ in the office.
I am a good 20 years plus older than most people I work with.I don’t usually think about it. I am cool with who I am and don’t try to dress or talk the talk, etc.(I would sound likean idiot, for sure).
But ever so often I look in the mirror and AACH—Who thehell is that? I note the tell tale signs which I kindaforgot about...
Hahaha.. somebody caled my husband “POPS” the other day and it freaked him out. He ran right to the store and bought dye for his hair!!
