You kids get off my damn lawn!!

The day you turn on MTV and say out loud: “what the hell is this garbage?”

You are officially old.

You’re not alone. Just yesterday I said “Who the hell gave these stupid little punks a drivers license?”… and “goddamn teenagers” is never far off.

A guy driving behind me flashed his brights at me so I’d get out of his way. I deliberately slowed down and took great satisfaction at how angry he was, complete with the thought “What an unsafe driver.”

First round of blue hair rinse is on me.

I have done all of the above. Plus, I’m getting chin hairs.

Meredith June 24, 2007 at 10:54 am

I have done/thought/muttered all of the above. Plus, I’m getting chin hairs.

Meredith June 24, 2007 at 10:56 am

oops. And I can’t figure out how to post ONE comment. Definitely old.

My kids love Akon, especially that annoying song with Gwen Stefani. I think he sucks. I’m officially old… with good taste.

Donna June 24, 2007 at 7:00 pm

Phew, I’m glad I’m not the only one. I haven’t been able to stomach anything on MTV for a while now.

Deltus June 24, 2007 at 8:46 pm

I’m getting hairs in my EARS!

Plus, yeah, a lot of the new music for the kids is shit. But the ear hair thing? Fuck that.

And I thought I was old when I didn’t get Sponge Bob … or Napoleon Dynamite.

jason June 25, 2007 at 1:58 am

come on…MTV has sucked for about 10 years! don’t attach you’re age to that…

geeky June 25, 2007 at 7:40 am

I’m so ooooold. And I’m not even 30 yet. *sobs*

Ms. Pants June 25, 2007 at 10:36 am

I have been old for a long time.

And dude. The chin hairs. WTF is up with that?! I’m getting them too!!

akeeyu June 25, 2007 at 1:03 pm

I don’t know what is a better sign of my Tragic Oldness, the fact that last week while I was on the freeway, I yelled “Don’t get cute with me, you little fucker! I’ve been getting cute since you were still attached to your mother’s tit!” or THE FACT THAT IT WAS TRUE.

You guys are lucky.

I’d trade good ‘ole ridiculous garbage for Japan’s version of MTV , anyday…

Ridiculous garbage and the Mo Fo’s be all outta tune…

Is it a hearing thing,
or just a hearing thing?

Love me some “Pimp My Ride”…

PaintingChef June 27, 2007 at 5:28 am

Oh great. So when I audibly roll my eyes at shows like “Engaged and Underage” and “My Super Sweet 16″ and wonder why on earth these kids weren’t beat up more often… that makes me OLD?


I guess I shouldn’t mention that I actually stodd in my front yard and yelled at “some punk kid” to SLOW DOWN!!!!!!! yesterday, huh?

just another jenny June 27, 2007 at 8:17 am

When clothes you “used to wear” come back in style, you are officially old.

ewe_are_here June 27, 2007 at 8:18 am

Well, if mtv is the standard, sadly I’ve been old for years!

Not to mention my reaction to current ‘fashion’ trends… “I can’t believe s/he is dressed like that in public!”
