I’m 50.

My work colleague’s work place martyrdom.
(She makes me weep or laugh at random.)

Bright orange hot pants.
(They did not look like they did on the 12 year old model. Who knew?)

being polite to men who talk at you
staying places where the bed's not comfortable
doing 'can you just' extras for clients. Yes I can just. If you pay me too.
Giving a toss what others think of me unless they are extremely close and important to me.
Starving myself so men I don't know can appreciate looking at me and the lack of space I take up. Nope mate, if you man spread, I'll fat spread.

It's liberating getting old.

Excessive drinking. Late nights. Modern music. Hot temperatures. Crowded places.

Just fun in general...

Pubs with loud dance music where you're expected to stand up . I need a comfy chair and Chris Rea playing gently in the background.

Standing up at a gig all night. Queuing to get into any kind of nightclub.
Grotty pubs

Ice skating. I never got good enough to just do it and am not as good at falling over any more.

Other people's self inflicted drama.
Cheap vodka

Wear uncomfortable underwear.

I am with all of these. I’m only 35.

I am going to a gig on Saturday. Why did I think that would be a good idea? At least it is in a naice venue. What will I wear?

Justkeepleft Tue 07-Aug-18 20:04:11

Getting out of a pool anywhere but at a ladder. I should have known better

StillMedusa Tue 07-Aug-18 20:05:40

Girls' nights out (shudder!)
Radio 1 (esp Chris Evans ..I can't stand him!)
Tight waistbands!

I have slid into middle aged 'don't give a toss-dom' and love it.
I have also slid into proper nepalese harem pants, don't care h
how funny I look.. they are COMFY!

I'm 50...

Getting chatted up in bars...Am 30 with a 2 year old and was at a Hen Do on Saturday I think its only the 2nd time I've been 'out out' since he was glad I'm not single anymore judging by the men at said bar.

I'm not too old to dance though, was very sad when I had to leave for the last bus!

FuzzyCustard Tue 07-Aug-18 20:06:40

The ageist shite often spouted on MN, eg "all baby boomers are selfish, horrid, filthy rich greedy bastards"

feekerry Tue 07-Aug-18 20:07:29

Too old to wear a ‘play suit’ apparently wink
