Message 441701 - Posted: 22 Oct 2006, 11:09:34 UTC

In our local shop this morning a young boy bought a can of Lucozade. I heard an elderly lady comment "How times change, when I was a girl the only time you ever drank that, was when your parents gave it to you when you were recuperating after an illness, now they all drink it like coke".

Sad thing was, I knew what she meant!

24 years old? I've got backpacking and camping gear that's older than that!

When you're 48 years old and have a cute little moustache, you'll know what we're talking about! LOL!

You will know that you are "progressing" when you have to put your glasses on to see the mouse buttons.

The slang words you used as a kid (and carried over into adulthood) are met with either blank stares, or the "rolling of the eyes" look from kids (your own or their friends)
