You know you are getting old when…………………..
You choose your cereal for the fibre and not for the toy to be found inside.
True but also you remember when they put toys in cereal. I think they stopped putting toys in cereal…in fact they must have stopped as my kids would fight like wild banshees to get to the toy if they still put them in cereal.Posted 8 years ago
When you go into Lush for a £20 gift voucher. The shop assistant tells you they only sell £5 and £10 vouchers and you're happy because now you've got something to complain about
When you don't have to push when taking a piss, in fact more often, it's a struggle to hold it back because you had a nice cup of tea 10 minutes ago
Daily Mail headlines start to make sense
The opician says you should think about bifocals and you take offence narrowly avoiding the use of the words "young man" in the following rant. So upset and offended by this you go for a pint, only to realise that you have to peer over your glasses because your close up vision is so piss-poor that you can't even see the money in your own hand.Posted 8 years agoGMember
Old eh? Old ???
I'll tell you about old m'laddy…..
Old is when you think Playboy magazine is for paedophiles…. when 40 year old women look attractive to you…. when sleep attacks you the moment you get home from work… when stuff you have had in the wardrobe for 20 years becomes cool again, but ironically won't then fit anymore… when you get your Lenny the Lion Esso coins out in response to the news that we might get the world cup again…. when you know what a tigers tail is about…. when you remember the time when we had colonies all over the world…. when you talk about Rhodesia….. when you realise that caning is something people now pay for ….. when you ask a copper where he keeps his whistle… sonny…… when you still know how to adjust rod brakes… when cotter pins are still in your toolbox… when you see Paul Nicholas on telly and think blimey he's aged …..

Ahh, that's why I don't buy cereals any more. No toys. Despite what they say in the adverts, I've never found the snap, crackle, pop to be that entertaining. Bring back the choking hazards I say. I really had no idea they'd stopped that.
I saw Paul Nicholas yesterday and thought he looked a little thinner on top 😯Posted 8 years ago
