Old People’s Humour

Stole this from FB – rather fitting since FB is an old person’s hang out (or so they tell me)…

The 16 Commandments of Growing Old

#1 – Talk to yourself, because there are times you need expert advice.

#2 – Consider “In Style” to be the clothes that still fit.

#3 – You don’t need anger management. You need people to stop irritating you.

#4 – Your people skills are just fine. It’s your tolerance for idiots that needs work.

#5 – The biggest lie you tell yourself is, “I don’t need to write that down. I’ll remember it.”

#6 – You have days when your life is just a tent away from a circus.

#7 – These days, “on time” is when you get there.

#8 – Even duct tape can’t fix stupid – but it sure does muffle the sound.

#9 – Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could put ourselves in the dryer for ten minutes, then come out wrinkle-free and three sizes smaller ?

#10 – Lately, You’ve noticed people your age are so much older than you.

#11 – “Getting lucky” means walking into a room and remembering why you’re there.

#12 – When you were a child, you thought nap time was punishment. Now it feels like a mini vacation.

#13 – Some days you have no idea what you’re doing out of bed.

#14 – You thought growing old would take longer.

#15 – Aging sure has slowed you down, but it hasn’t shut you up.

#16 – You still haven’t learned to act your age, and hope you never will.

Personally, I’m very fond of #8.  Tho #’s 3 and 4 kinda hark back to my previous post.
