    I just answer back, I'm not that old yet. Plus 21 isn't old, it's older when comparing with like when you were 16 etc. And sometimes people need to be told 'act your age'...

    I agree with Rei. The examples you gave are not neccessarily related to being called old. an example is when my friend called me 'Grandad' a few times XP. I didn't mind at all to be honest. But I see what you mean in the examples. It can get irritatiing after a while, when they keep on saying it everytime.

    And yeah 'act your age, not your shoe size!' XD

    OP, these things imply that you're immature, not that you're "old".

    I do get my family saying to me that I'm very sensible (about some things) like I rarely go out anymore and hate nights out with them cos I admit I'm boring and don't really drink either lol That and I have given up on sexy shoes, I am buying grannyish hush puppies anymore!!! My mum will never understand the lack of stilettos!

    I wish people would call me old
    I like it makes me feel grown up. As for "act your age", no one ever has to say that I'm a mature young lady me :p:

    I get called old as a joke because I had a gap year and I hang around with a lot of people who didn't. Doesn't bother me though
