Default You know you're getting old when...

AARP sponsors the Rolling Stones tour:

Will there be a matinee?
If I have a walker, will it fit through the metal detector?

Comedy writes itself!

Got a good laugh when I saw a tv ad for this just an hour ago. Although I didnt need AARP to point out that the Stones are old, a look at them 10 yrs ago told me that.

You know you're getting old when your back goes out more frequently than you....

They might be old, but they're still good lookin'. That's what my grand daughter tells me all the time, "you might be old grandpa, but you're still good lookin'."

You know you're getting old when you're having your second hip joint replacement...tomorrow!

You know you’re getting old when you talk about knowing when you’re getting old.

…when you’ve gotten so tired of doctors telling you “this is normal for a man your age” you’re afraid you may slap the next one!

You know you’re old when the cashier at a restaurant gives you a senior discount automatically without you even asking.
