  • When did I get soooo Old?

    Posted on Sunday, January 20, 2013

    I don’t feel old. I don’t think of myself as being old.

    But.....

    At my job we have a huge age division.  It’s just by chance, but half the employees are over 45 and the other half are under 25. I think the only person in the warehouse that’s in his 30s is the asst manager.  So, in the eyes of half of my co-workers, I’m old.

    The two people who work directly with me are 25 and 55.  And the other day the 25 year old was just awed that we remembered space missions that she’s only seen documentaries about.  She didn’t know that Reagan was ever shot.  She didn’t know there wasn’t such a thing as meth when we were her age.   After that afternoon’s conversation, I felt really old.

    And then last night I went out with my co-workers.  And we ended up at a bar where the young desperate men and overweight girls with low self esteem hang out.  The dj was just playing noise.  I don’t know how to dance anymore... I felt really old.

      It’s not someplace I’d have gone, but a friend of mine who is my age talked me into it.  We were by FAR the oldest people there.  We found out our boss is younger than our oldest kids.   I felt really old.

    And then some drunk kid who is a friend of one of my young co-workers looked at me and said I was pretty old “you must be like 30”   LOL!   Made my day!!!!!
