Summer's almost gone and the winter's tuning up.

I'm sure a lot of us on here have now left behind our 20s and are experiencing life at pace 30+.

Going bald? Not really understand haircuts now? Modern music not really your thing?

Have you had any "I'm getting old" moments?

Personally, it was the other day I was having a conversation about those daft mushroom haircuts you see - you know the ones that are big and curly at the top and really neat at the sides. Anyway, mid-way bitch I started to realise that it's just me being really old and not getting the younger generation. When did such a haircut seem reasonable?

I'm not a big fan of some of today's television due to how sexual and viscerally violent it is. This aged thought/complaint hit me when I tried to get into Game Of Thrones a few years ago but I quickly tapped out. It's just tits and blood, that's all the kids want, isn't it?

Going bald? Yeah, started to in my 20's so I shave my head. A guy I know is struggling with it and doing a comb over, he then grew a beard and at the age of 25 looks 45.

Haircuts, I really don't understand the shaved back and side thing and I got into an argument one time at work with a guy after he said he wanted a top knot and I said they were for wankers. I look back over the years and hair cuts that have been popular over a specific time are generally pretty shit.

I'm 11 years older than a girl at work, 33 and 22, she loves Friends, a show which was out when I was at school and I hate it. She says everybody loves it, however everyone I know thinks it is shit, even the ones that were fans of it back in the 90s. Is there some rule that people of a certain age have to love or hate that bumhole of a tv show?

@Accident Prone I have actually started to think TV has started to become a bit to sweary, people in general have. What happened to grade A insults like Bell End? Why does everyone have to use the word cunt all the time, just takes away from the impact.

I don't think GOT is the best example to use, to be fair. There are lots of people who think the Fighting & Fucking element of that programme is excessive and gratuitous. There are plenty of other TV series that don't go to that extreme.

I just used GOT as a general example. It seems that every other show seems to either have a Channel 5 softcore scene or some gratuitous torture porn in every episode. I try to avoid films with those elements but they're only limited to a specific time frame. But a whole season of it? Nah, I'm alright thanks.

I don't know what it is that makes me so uncomfortable around it to be honest. Most people can understand why I'm not a fan of people getting strapped to chairs and having bits of themselves cut off, but surely a straight man should enjoy tits up to the eyeballs and sexual encounters aplenty? Whatever the reason, it makes me feel old as fuck.

Actually I'm perfectly fine with all swearing. I love it when characters go on foul-mouthed tirades.

I've felt like an old man for a while now (I'm 34) 

Being in bed by half 9 on work nights and then Waking up stupid early on weekends without any reason to do so. But then enjoying listening to the birds. 

Gardening. 

Trying to decipher what in the fuck the youngsters in my office are on about. 

Strange haircuts (I've been steadily losing my hair for 15 years) 

Snapchat.

Yeah, the lads rocking the mushroom haircut and skin-tight trousers which look like my drainpipes. Sometimes this ensemble is combined with eyebrows plucked so neatly that my wife is jealous of them. When I was at school those are the kids that would've had their dinner money stolen and their PE kit pissed into on a regular basis. Now they're the fashionable ones who probably get all the girls. 

On the hair front, I've had the shaved head since I was a teenager. I could grow a full head of hair then if I wanted to. As the years went by though, I noticed shaving my head was taking a bit less time. Left it to grow for a bit a while back out of laziness and, lo and behold, full on Steve MacDonald off Corrie receder going on. Slaphead for life from here on out. Oddly though, as my head hair has vanished, my ballbag looks like Jeremy Clarkson these days if I don't tidy it up. And for some reason my nostril hair accelerated after 30. What's that about? What the hell is my body preparing for that requires a vast increase of nasal and bollock hair? 

Technology is another one. I am stuck in the fucking Stone Age when it comes to gadgets. They kind of intimidate me. I'd probably still be using VHS if it was widely available. My phone is basic as fuck. I don't bother with Whatsapp and shit like that, despite everyone telling me I should. I've never fucked with Facebook or anything like that really. If people want to contact me it's going to be via phonecall, text message, the bat signal or sending a fucking pigeon with a letter in its beak. My wife's got some fancy, fandangled phone that might as well be in Chinese when I've tried to have a play on it. I'm scared I'll click on the wrong thing and buy a combine harvester or an African orphan or something. But worst of all, my 4 year old daughter knows exactly what she's doing on my wife's phones, tablet etc. Swiping away, clicking on shit, getting into menus she shouldn't be. She's probably ordering nerve agents off the dark web as we type.

When friends suggest going out at night time (after 8pm). Fuck that noise! 

Unless it's a ticketed event which has a fixed start time I'm 100% a go out & come back earlier bloke now. In the week I'm in bed for half 9 most nights.

Someone once told me they liked classic Rock 'like Queen, Led Zep and Oasis'. As soon as Oasis were added, I died a little inside when they explained Definitely Maybe had been released the year before he was born. 

I saw a kid on facebook refer to Linkin Park as Dad rock recently. Fucking idiot.

I remember my Dad telling me that I know I‚Äôm getting old¬†when I see a police officer who looks like a kid. I still remember the day when I looked at a copper and thought ‚Äúsurely he is still doing his GCSEs.‚ÄĚ That hit me hard¬†

He's not wrong. Linkin Park is 100% a band yer da listens to and also yer da's favorite metal band. 

He is wrong. If he doesn’t know the struggles having to steal music off Limewire at the risk of getting computer AIDs then his opinion on music is worthless
