Feeling old?

  1. [CENTER]Just in case you weren't feeling too old today, this will
    certainly change things.

    The people who are starting college this fall across the nation
    were born in 1989.

    They are too young to remember the space shuttle blowing up.

    Their lifetime has always included

    The CD was introduced two years before they were born.

    They have always had an answering machine.

    They have always had cable.

    Jay Leno has always been on the Tonight Show.

    Popcorn has always been cooked in the microwave.

    They never took a swim and thought about Jaws.

    They don't know who Mork was or where he was from.

    They never heard: "Where's the Beef?", "I'd walk a mile for a
    Camel", or "de plane Boss, de plane".

    McDonald's never came in Styrofoam containers.

    They don't have a clue how to use a typewriter

    Do you feel old yet? (Sorry)
    Notice the larger type, that's for those of you
    who have trouble reading.

    Save the earth. It's the only planet with chocolate

    In the UK you can join the armed forces at 16 1/2. I feel old when I see somebody's birthday is after I joined the armed forces.

    One of my younger member's of staff has just told her mother she is to be a grandmother - I'm a year older than her mother!
