So I Said, “I’m Old Enough To Be Your Older Sister!”

Signs that some of the people you work with are very, very young (relatively speaking):
1. You’re having lunch with the young-uns. They go around the table telling you what year they all graduated from high school. All of them graduated in this millenium.
2. When you tell them what year you graduated, they say things like, “Dude. I was in the SECOND GRADE that year!”
3. A lot of them still live at home with mom and dad. A couple of them are getting ready to go off to college.
4. One of them invites you to his 21st birthday party. It is a ‘hotel party’. And I don’t mean the kind in a ballroom.
5. “WHO’S RICKY SCHRODER?” they ask. (this one killed me) Your description of the 80s hit tv sitcom Silver Spoons is met with vacant stares.

    I know how you feel- my girls at the Mermaid don’t even know who New Kids on the Block or Debbie Gibson are! I graduated from college before they were in high school too! Yikes!
    But its ok, I know plenty of people who are older than me…

    okay the last one HURT, but perhaps you guys can build a bridge…i mean he was on scrubs. (oh, and if you want to feel bad, talk about music, my sister is ALWAYS surprised to find out what songs are remakes.)

    Last night while we were listening to “The Quiet Storm” on Hit Radio 100 at work, I was singing along to “I Miss You” by Klymaxx, one of my employees asked how I knew the words to the song since she had never heard it before. I said that it had been a popular song back in ’85 when I was 15 years old. She promptly replied by saying “Wow, your pretty old, I was only 2 in 1985”. Ouch!

    I was on the elevator at work one day and some college interns were discussing someone they know who is 30. One of them said, “I cannot imagine being 30, like that is soooo old!” I’m creeping up on 34 and all I could do was laugh at them! So far, my 30’s have been my best years.

    I agree, the 30s have been the BEST!

    i disagree. my favorite years were between 6 yrs old and 8 years.
    but my 30s have been pretty great too.
    btw, when i was 6-8 years old, they were electing reagan president for the first time and star wars was a big thing. i was into dukes of hazard. i wasn’t really into music, but i remember singing a song that went, “shake it, don’t break it, took your mama nine months to make it.”
    good times. good times.
