    You might be old if someone asks you what brand of chainsaw to look at.

    You reply, “Stihl is the dial tone for chainsaws,” and they reply, “What is a dial tone?”

    When you're really young, you're happy if you don't poop your pants. When you're middle aged, you're happy if you don't have to poop at work. When you're old you're happy if you can poop at all.

    ...when you realize the cute young woman at the checkout is closer in age to your kid(s) than you.

    ....when you start calling her a “young woman” instead of “hot chick”....geez.

    You're old when you're first car only had an AM radio until you installed an underdash FM converter you got from Radio Shack. And when you did a tune-up it included a cap, rotor, points, and condenser.

    You know you are really old if you bought Remington 700 rifles, 1100 shotguns and 870 Wingmasters and got truely excellent guns. You bought a Smith 19 instead of a Python because it was a better gun. You bought a High Standard Victor instead of a Smith 41 because it was a better gun. You remember when you could go into a gun shop with $200 and buy an nice gun. You remember shopping at Lew Hortons, Colmans, Tightlines, Thompsons, Fox, Airport, Ivanho, and that crazy place on Route 30. You know you are really old if you had a .222 because it is more accurate than a .223. You see no reason to buy a 9mm except the cheap surplus ammo.

    Wait, no, seriously, what's wrong with those New Balance sneakers?
    I've got like 3 pair: One for every day, one for special occasions, and one for fertilizing the lawn.

    Mine too, eventually. Joined the Columbia record and tape club and got 16, 8 track tapes for a penny. Then you had to buy one a month for a year.
    My last 8 track was Jethro Tull, Songs From The Wood.

    My Father added an 8 track right after my older brother got his license and we played Meatloaf, Bat Out Of Hell over and over and over and over. Summer of 78 I think.

    When you remember seeing N64 games in Toys R' Us.

    When you start saying, "That's not how it use to be."

    When you'd rather have less tech gadgets than buy new ones cuz you know in a year it'll be obsolete.
