She said "Oh, you might know my Brothers,they used to race too".
She mentioned the names,and yes ,I knew them very well.
THEN I remembered HER!
I asked "Do you remember me?"
She says "No"
I say "That's good,that means I'll get up after the surgery is done"
She asked "Why is that?"
I told her"Because when you were a little girl,we gave you SUCH a bad time when you were hanging out in your brothers garage with us,and we did all sorts of cruel jokes to you."
She thought a while as she got the IV into me,then,smiling at me,she said "Now I remember you,You were so bad in those days,but you always bought me ice cream at the racetrack and I really looked forward to that on race days!

I woke up in recovery alive and intact,she was there and we laughed about the old days!

NO WAY!

I'm at a UPS satellite store, not a main branch by the way, and the girl behind the counter starts giving me a hard time about not being able to use a company account number for mailing out stuff from her office's location, but at first, she does it in generic kind of way. After a couple verbal interactions, I'm thinking she's had a bad day, so at the best of my utmost ability, I placate her acerbic tone with couple humorous colloquialisms based on the situation, and then offer several choices as possible solutions.

I realize she ain't buying it, and asked her what she would suggest. OUCH! Then starts a 1 minute diatribe of policy and how cooperate people think accounts are so important to UPS. I finely interrupt her somewhere in the middle of of it all, and just out and ask, "What the **** is your problem?!?!?! Do I know you?!? Do you think you know me? Has my company done anything to get you into trouble?!? Why are you so ******* temperamental?!?" She laughs and says, "Yeah, I knew I recognized you, your name's *****, and you dated my Mom, *******, back in the **'s." What the heck!?! She was right.... Oops, small world...


Ended up getting the thing shipped for free and an old life chapter closed.

I almost didn't make it to 54 years old, so I am absolutely ecstatic to be 63 years old. Life is a gift.

Teach her what good MUSIC is, HollowHead!

Mine came came at a local workout session of martial artists. It's usually a bunch of middle aged guys with some guests (usually school bullies or their victims) I was demonstrating balance to some of the kids when I broke concentration with a young and enthusiastic judo green belt. I was driven HARD to the mat. I now only demonstrate with mellow guys my age.

I was 40, a long time ago, and dealing for a new fridge. Is there any way you can take more off that price? "I can give you a 15% senior discount." What the age for that? "55".

I took the discount and never shopped there again.

One day it dawned on me that my favorite songs are "classic rock", I don't know any of the songs on the "new rock" radio station and I don't like them either. That was the first time I felt old.

The second time I felt old was when I realized that I (1) get up early no matter what, (2) I watch documentaries and the news, and often yell at the TV, and (3) I complain about the price of stuff, usually comparing "it" to what "it" cost 20 years ago.

I made it past the 55 threshold and thought I was doing okay. Then my wife comes home from the bank and informs me that she changed our checking account to an "old goat" account, meaning we got free checking, free travelers checks, etc.

Couple of weeks ago I was having lunch and a young (early 20's) waitress comes by my table with the coffee pot.
Without asking, she tops my cup off and even before I got "thank you"out of my mouth, she says "my Grandpa likes his coffee to be really hot and I thought you like it that way too"!

I was talking with my 12 year-old Stepdaughter last week about cameras and when I started talking about different types of film, she went blank and asked what camera film was.

I felt older than King Tut's farts.

When I was getting ready for my first colonoscopy,the Doc said " Don't worry,it's only about the diameter of a finger,But,it's marked off in FATHOMS"

Don't you just love medical humor??

Well to be fair, that mix crosses a broad spectrum. So at any given moment she might not have known the particular song Gramps and the Gray Beards were playing

Well I'm 61 today and glad to make it this long,( had a minor stroke in August). Anyway I was at Mickey D's a few months ago to get coffee and the kid said that will be 62 cents, or some thing like that, can't really remember. I said I thought it was a dollar he says "senior discount". He might have been 18, at least he didn't say sir.
