    I'm 31 and they sometimes insist on loading items from the yard at my local hardware store. I'm sure it's a liability thing that my become more and more common. I can see them being required by policy to at least offer to assist customers load items weighing more than 50lbs to avoid an injury lawsuit on property..... Damn lawsuit happy world we live in...

    Several years ago when I had only an S-10 Pickup we were buying yard product from Lowe's for our new very large raised flower and plant bed. We were probably about 58. Our first load a guy about 50 helped us load about 25 bags. He struggled. We told we would be back for a 2nd load. When we returned he was no where to be found. The Assistant Manager came to help. He could not pick up even one bag. So Patti and I did the second load oursleves. Besides the loading we did the off loading ourselves and carried each bag about 50 feet from the driveway to the backyard. The Lowe's garden people are wimps.

    Several years ago (last century) at Lowes, I dropped a sheet of 4'x8' siding (T1-11) on my foot. I had to visit an urgent care center as it smashed two of 'em (broke one in 6 places). I was told that I should sue for them for letting me hoist it myself. I laughed and said, "contributory negligence."

    Last week, however, I did request assistance in loading a workbench... I need my toes.

    At a recent dinner with my stepsons, I said that, when I was young, I didn't want to dine with my elderly in-laws becuz all they did was talk about their various ailments, so I understand they may not want to dine with us much, becuz that's pretty much what we do.

    I just wanna be able to rise from a seated position without grunting.

    Last year my 50+ year old friend said he needed to get money from the "money mover"... which is what ATMs were called in the 80s. I told him he's really dating himself. He looked a little confused for about 15 seconds, then laughed.

    I want pretty, nice recipe cards...those spark joy in me. ;) While you will get multiple hits with a Google search, upon clicking most of those links, the cards are actually 4x6 recipe cards, not 3x5. Yeah, sometimes even Google fails. There are homemade ones on Etsy that are uber-expensive. Amazon has ONE DESIGN...on plain brown Kraft paper. You can download "print your own" designs. Yeah, no.

    I just want a pack of mass-produced 3x5, pretty recipe cards, that were usually sold all over the place for about $5. All they seem to make now is 4x6. *sigh*

    I just spent five minutes Googling "3X5 Index Cards Recipe" and came up with the links below. Will any of them work for you?

    The ones on Amazon are too plain (I remember these from my initial Google searches, too.) I won't shop at Walmart. and the last link is for ones on Zazzles (they are more than $1/card; like the ones on Etsy.) The first link has some good choices, though...I hadn't seen that link in the numerous, previous Google searches I had done.

    But the big mystery to me is this: there are clearly WAAAAY more options for 4x6 cards than 3x5 cards, which definitely was not the case "back in the day." I wonder what drove the change?

    Aging cooks with poor eyesight? LOL!

    On some of the pages for 4X6 cards, scrolling down showed the same version in a 3X5 card. No idea why the originals you liked are so hard to find. :shrug:

    I have to make sure I have "options" for getting back up if I get down on my knees. Found that out the hard way a couple months ago when I had to crawl a few feet to a stationary chair in my office because the desk was too high to help, and I didn't dare trust the rolling chair. I'm sure the neighbors heard me grunting and cursing both.

    DH still calls it the "cash station" which was the local name around here in the 80s.

    I haven't heard "creme rinse" used for a long time. I guess it is still sold. I can't remember the name of the brand of creme rinse that I used back in the 70's.

    So maybe crime rinse is another term that ages me. I use it interchangeably with conditioner.

    How about...
    When you use your home phone (a/k/a landline) to "ring" your cell phone to find it in a pants pocket.

    When my daughter was in high school two years ago, she said that "Facebook is how your teachers communicate with you i.e. we don't use it."

    When I was young, "dating" meant that you dated multiple people and were not exclusive. My daughter says that "dating" now implies that you "going steady." (a word they don't use anymore).

    I wish I could still get down on my knees, but after having both knees replaced, it's not an option unless it's really thick, padded carpet. When something feel under the dresser, I was able to get on the floor to reach it, but then had to roll across the floor to a chair. Getting up was even harder because I couldn't help laughing at myself.

    You know you’re old when I got lucky means you found a parking spot near the club.
