I Am Officially An Old.

Last week, in our neighborhood there was a teenage driver going about 45mph in a 10mph zone, so Captain Thoughtful rolled down his window and yelled “YOU NEED A ROLE MODEL!” at the reckless teen driver.Β To which I added “AND STAY OFF OUR LAWN!”

These comments could have been hilarious coming from two under-thirties with no kids…had we not been completely serious.

We are officially olds.

    What a clever comment by the Captain! Who else would have thought to tell the young whipper snappers that they needed a role model?!!!

  3. This is exactly how I feel at 26! I’ve suddenly realized I’m turning into my mother and asserting to the younger generation how their behavior is sub par. Example: kids ( probably about 10) telling “eff you” to everyone on ski lift the other day. I was all “OMG, where are your parents!?!?” as though I’m so totally sophisticated at my age. Ha. But seriously, they needed a role model too.
