    When I went to a club last weekend and I saw everyone infront of me was being asked for ID, so I got mine out and when I got to the front the bouncer didn't even look at it and said "I wasn't going to ask you anyway".

    Hahaha I love this post. Being 21 at the moment, it's usually the "latest discussion" topics on the right that makes me feel old. Especially topics like:

    - Do I suit long/shorter hair and what would you recommend?
    - Do you stare at boobs (Like, seriously guys? )

    Younger people.

    Being told I 'don't get it' by teenagers, or that I can't possibly relate to them or understand how awful their life/parents/friends are. You know what? **** you all. We've all been there and the only reason you think us adults can't relate to you is because we grew the hell up and realised that our teenage woes were superficial and a product of our biology. Of course you've had it worse and are of deeper mind and purer soul than anyone else ever. Of course.

    When people don't know what certain things are (Walkmans, cassette tapes, VHS, floppy disks).

    When people don't know about or remember things that happened in my life, such as the first Gulf war or the Kosovo crisis.

    When people say my music or film tastes are for 'old' people.

    Seeing people who are 30-40 and realising they are closer to my age than my parents'.

    Realising I am over half way to 40.

    Remembering my own mortality.

    Ugh. Existential crisis coming on ...

    When people don't know how to record from the TV/radio to a casette (I used to record songs from Smash Hits TV so I could listen to them on my tape-walkman!)
    When people don't know what Sweater Shop Sweaters are!

    Also when the new TRON legacy movie came out, I watched the old one and realised how fast things have changed in 28 years.

    My sister doesn't know who S Club 7 are...
    Thats another thing that gets me people with no knowledge/little recognition of bands/music that defined my childhood. Out of interest how old is your sister?

    I hate reminiscing. Oh, do remember the spice girls and princess diana and when will smith didnt to the same film genre over and over again but sang that addictive tune..."Now, this is the story all about how/My life got flipped-turned upside down/And I'd like to take a minute/Just sit right there/I'll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel Air...or do you remember when you played on the nintendo Super Famicom or game boy
