How To Tell If You Are A Senior Citizen Or A Hipster

If any of the following pertain to you, you are a senior citizen….or a hipster, or, God help us all, both.

1. You regularly wear a fanny pack.

Hipster: Because hipster kitties need a place to put their casette tapes.

Senior Citizen: Because you don’t need those immigrants sneaking up from behind and robbing you.

3. Your pants of choice are high-waisted.

Hipster: You literally put the hip in hipster.

Senior Citizen: Your pants’ waistline rises an inch after each child you have (*1.5 inches after each grandchild).

(Or you’re a Republican…

…or a Democrat).

7. You rock the comb over.

Senior Citizen: Because… obviously, it keeps you young.

9. You have tons of huge glasses.

Hipster: Because you need a variety of non-prescription glasses… #obvi.

Hipster: Because you don’t have to have a degree to be ironic.

Senior Citizen: Because you are a proud, supportive grandparent!

13. You take a ton of prescription pills.

Senior Citizen: …or at least as many as Medicare will cover.
