40 Somethings

By
Real Estate Agent with Sotheby's International Realty Canada - Brokerage

You know you're in your 40's when:

  • You keep more food than beer in the fridge.
  • 6:00 AM is when you get up, not when you go to bed.
  • You hear your favorite song on an elevator.
  • You watch the Weather Channel.
  • Your friends marry and divorce instead of hook up and break up.
  • You go from 130 days of vacation time to 14.
  • Jeans and a sweater no longer qualify as "dressed up."
  • You're the one calling the police because those %&@# kids next door won't turn down the music.
  • You don't know what time Taco Bell closes any more.
  • Your car insurance goes down and your payments go up.
  • Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt.
  • You realize your golf/tennis game is never going to improve.
  • Dinner and a movie is the whole date, instead of the beginning of one.
  • A $4.00 bottle of wine is no longer "pretty good stuff."
  • You actually eat breakfast food at breakfast time.
  • 90% of the time you spend in front of a computer is for real work.
  • You think snow boarding is for kids that haven't learned to ski properly
  • You read this entire list, looking desperately for one sign that doesn't apply to you, but, can't find one to save your life.

Sorry!

Susan...I'm heavily into denial right now and have been for several, several  years, so I'm not ready to agree with any of these...although I will say a lot of time was spent on the last item.

Susan, I am not quite 40 yet, but the entire list pertains to me....Man, I am feeling a little older now.  Funny list, I am forwarding this one to my sister (She will be 40 this year).

What the heck is this list doing in the comedy section?  That ain't funny no more.

Sure was funny when I was on the other side of the fence though!

Susan, I'm moving to Egypt!!  Do you know if RE/MAX has any offices there? 

I've got a great new slogan for them; "Above the Pyramids"...I'll move along now.

How can any one read that and NOT laugh.  Those kinds of lists kill me, but sometimes the truth hurts just a little bit.  I'm a 29 year old mind in a much older body.

That is funny and true! The exact opposite applies to my 20 year old in college daughter! I think I will send her the list so she can see what she has to look forward too and that I am not the only one!
