Forgot I was 50....DAMN!!!!
 
I haven't been in here is a while. Is "forgetting" I am 50 a bad thing, a sign of things to come?....or am I just a dumba$$:D.?

Cheers,

Brian J.

How can you forget that you're 50+? Just think of all the "senior discounts" you get. ;)
Been hanging out in the Road forum?

I was going to post a really funny quip in response to your question, but I forgot what it was.

Well, to answer your question... Its not a bad thing, or a sign of things to come... LOL!

Maybe its early days, erm years, yet, but I never remember I'm over 50. Seems too many years to me.

If forgetting means not being aware of it only a daily basis, then I often forget my age. Which, BTW, I find especially interesting, because I post in the 50+ forum on a pretty regular basis. I guess, I just see the title 50+ and my brain doesn't think "age". Rather, it thinks "most reasonable, even tempered thread on bikeforums."

If someone asks how old I am then I just tell them the year I was born and let them do the math.
Wait, what was the question?
I have to go to the bathroom,
g'nite.

Twice I've thought my age was a year different from what it actually was. Both times I was brought back to reality when I had to fill out a form with my date of birth and my age. Both times the person looking at the form took about 3 seconds to cross out my age and fill in the correct one. Both times it took me about a minute to carefully do the math and realize they were right. (sigh)

So why do you think they ask for both your date of birth AND your age? I hate filling out forms just for the sake of filling out the form.

At my doctor's office one of the questions on a form that I had to fill out asked what name I'd prefer the staff to call me. I responded Mr. _____. When my turn came, they called me by my first name. Why ask if you're not going to use the information?

I fixed it for you.

When I was 50, I never forgot it. That's when I joined AARP and started throwing my card out at the restaurants for the senior discounts. At 65, it's no longer fun anymore and many places now ask if I want the senior portion instead.

Next time, tell them to call you SIR.

How old am I? Young enough to remember but old enough to not much care.

rnorris 02-04-12 08:14 PM

Rode my bike to the post office the other day and held the door for a lady walking in with a box in her hands... got a "Thank you, young man". Probably my helmet-frazzed hair looked thicker than it really is... but I'll take the compliment.

I'm 51 and am reminded of it every day when I get up in the morning.
