People Are Sharing The Moments They Realized They Weren't Young Anymore, And Dang, Some Of These Are Just Too Relatable
"When a song I loved as a teenager appeared as an oldie on the radio."
If you’re over 30, you probably know all too well that you've started feeling like your youth is behind you.
And there were so many relatable responses! Here are some of the top-voted answers:
4. "I had a truck sitting in front of my house for an hour, at 1 a.m. Didn't know what they were up to, but I didn't like it. Finally, I knocked on the window and said, 'I don't know what you're doing, but do it somewhere else.' Turns out it was a couple of teenagers fooling around, one of whom lives a few houses down."
"So yeah, I pulled a literal 'damn kids, get off my lawn!' on them. And now, I'm that curmudgeonly old guy who lives down the street, and I'm only 35."
7. "Saw some neighborhood kids messing with a stop sign. I slowed the car down, rolled down a window, and said, 'Hey...I think maybe you shouldn't be doing that.' In my mind, that meant cut it out before an adult catches you."
"But these kids looked sheepishly at the ground and gave me an 'Okay' like I was the adult in the situation. Which I was, gently chastising children for fooling around with public property."
11. "When I only got four hours of sleep before work and felt like I was literally going to die. Ten years ago, I would drive five hours after work on Friday to see my SO, we’d party all weekend, then I’d leave at 1 a.m. on Monday, drive all night and go to work that same morning. I was exhausted but fine. Now, just one night of not enough sleep…I got old."
14. "Some kids were throwing a party. Loud music and laughter/voices. I said to myself, 'It’s 10 p.m., shouldn’t they be turning it down now?' Started debating going to knock on the door and telling them to just turn it down a bit. Then I realized….it’s Saturday night."
"I realized I am officially that cranky neighbor who's home on a Saturday night with nothing better to do but get mad at the teens for doing exactly what I used to do."
