  • Symptoms Of Being Over 25

    An old classic


    1. You leave clubs before the end to 'beat the rush'. (worst still you don't go to the clubs)

    2. You get more excited about having a roast on a Sunday than going clubbing the night before.

    3. You stop dreaming of becoming a professional footballer/basketballplayer and start dreaming of having a son who might instead.

    4. Before throwing the local paper away, you look through the property section.

    5. All of a sudden, middle aged people are not 46, they are only 46.

    6. Before going out anywhere, you ask whether there is anywhere to park.

    7. Rather than throw a knackered pair of trainers out, you keep them because they'll be alright for the DIY or in the garden.

    8. You buy T-shirts without anything written on them.

    9. Instead of laughing at the innovations catalogue that falls out of the newspaper, you suddenly see both the benefit and money saving properties of most of the things that are in it.

    10. You start to worry about your parents' health.

    11. You have more disposable income, but everything you want or need to buy costs between 200 and 500 quid.

    12. You don't get funny looks when you buy a Disney video or a Wallace And Gromit bubble bath, as the sales assistant assumes they are for your children.

    13. Pop music all starts to sound the same.

    14. You opt for Pizza Express over Pizza Hut because they do a really nice half-bottle of house red.

    15. You always have enough milk in.

    16. To compensate for the fact that you have little desire to go clubbing, you instead frequent trendy bars and restaurants in the mistaken belief that you have not turned into your parents.

    17. While flicking through the TV channels, you happen upon C4's Time Team with Tony Robinson. You get drawn in. Grand Designs also appeals.

    18. The benefits of a pension scheme become clear.

    19. You go out of your way to pick up a colour chart from B&Q.

    20. You wish you had a shed.

    21. You have a shed.

    22. You actually find yourself saying 'They don't make 'em like that anymore' and 'I remember when there were only 4 TV channels' and 'Not in my day....'

    23. Radio 2 play more songs you know than Radio 1 - and Jeremy Vine has some really interesting guests on.

    24. Instead of tutting at old people who take ages to get off the bus, you tut at rowdy school children.

    25. When sitting outside a pub you admire their hanging baskets.

    26. You find yourself saying 'is it cold in here or is it just me

    27. you understand the above and forward it to your fellow aging friends

          Numbers, 3,5,6,7,8,10,1.24 soooooo totally true.
          But these are nice feelings.
          At least there are some bonuses to getting older.

          I dont feel like I need to learn the lyrics of songs.
          I dont give a hooha what people think of me as long as my nearest and dearest like me.
          I get a new hobby of tryin to delay wrinkles and I get new places to find stray hairs, ...some grey.
          I quite like staying in (but have realised I have no social life).I actually plan and ring round my friday nights tv viewing in the paper.
          I see youngsters and thank goodness im not their age anymore.

                          All of the above and more. Don't you hate it when you find yourself saying to your kids "if I'd have spoken to my Mother/Father like that I would have......" or you trot out your parents favourite phrases. Oh well time to take off the woolly bed socks and get dressed, take the milk in, feed the cats and whizz the vacuum cleraner round before going to the shops and tutting at the youth of today..

                              I knew i was getting older when I on the few occasions I do go clubbing I make sure I have a nice warm coat and to put on after maybe an umberella just in case...

                              Also I started to think that the people on the grumpy old men/women programs on TV really do make some valid points!
