I took a double glazed motorhome window to a specialist repairer in Halifax and had to kill some time while it was fixed. Their office was closed when I returned, so I went to the factory entrance where I explained my presence to a young apprentice who answered the door. He turned and walked into the interior shouting "T'owd fella's come fer 'is winder". Yes, it was the first time I realised that I must be old.

I won a small pink plastic sparkly trinket box from the penny falls machine (now 2p falls) in a seaside arcade. I offered it to the person next to me for her daughter to have. She asked me if my grandchildren wouldn’t like it instead

I was told on holiday a couple of years ago that my grand daughter was beautiful. I pointed out it was my daughter and he was a bit embarrassed and very apologetic!

When some kind white haired chap on the underground, who you think looks older then you, offers you his seat. I was with my four grown up sons at the time who burst out laughing and offered to buy me a walking stick. Ruddy kids..........

When your mother says to you "you do realise all my children are retired now"

Helloo,

About 2x years ago I walked over the campus to go to a meeting. While I was walking the wind blew my cap of my head and blew it away 4x or 5x meters. A young student rushed to pick it up and gave it back to me ... it was a lovely gesture from her, but at that point I felt old.

Happy for a long time young California,
Eberhard

When you relise that even though you have two good hips now (new ones) you'd rather be in the warm and dry than riding your trike, however sad you were when you had to give it up!

(I spose I could legimately be called old at 74?)

When your daughter shows you how to “swipe” from the top corner of your iPhone when you have had iPhones since they first came out.
