Sitting on the side of the road waiting to catch speeding drivers, a state trooper sees a car puttering along at 22 mph. He thinks to himself, "This driver is as dangerous as a speeder!" So he Turns on his lights and pulls the driver over.
Approaching the car, he notices that there are five elderly ladies - two in the front seat and three in the back, wide-eyed and white as ghosts. The driver, obviously confused, says to him, "Officer, I don't understand. I was going the exact speed limit. What seems to be the problem?"
The trooper trying to contain a chuckle, explains to her that 22 was the route number, not the speed limit. A bit embarrassed, the woman grinned and thanked the officer for pointing out her error.
"But before you go, Ma'am, I have to ask, is everyone in this car OK?
These women seem awfully shaken."
"Oh, they'll be all right in a minute, officer. We just got off Route 127."
You know you're an aging radio DJ IF: You were first hired by a GM who actually worked in radio before becoming a GM... You excitedly turn the radio up at the sound of "dead air" on the competitor's station... Sales guys wore Old Spice to cover the smell of liquor... You were playing Elvis' number one hits when he was alive... Engineers could actually fix things without sending them back to the manufacturer... You worked for only ONE station, and you could actually name the guy who owned it... You remember when only "hippies" listened to FM... Radio stations used to have enough on-air talent to field a softball team every summer... You're at least 10 years older than the last two GM's who fired you... You know the difference between good reel-to-reel tape and cheap reel-to-reel tape.... You have a white wax pencil, a razor blade, and a spool of 3M splicing tape in your desk drawer - just in case... You know people who actually listened to baseball games on the radio... You can post a record, run down the hall, go to the bathroom, and be back in 2:50 for the segue... You still refer to CDs as "records"... You've been married at least 3 times, or, never married at all... You answer your home phone with the station call letters.... You have several old air-check cassettes in a cardboard box in your closet that you wouldn't dream of letting anyone hear anymore, but, you'll never throw them out or tape over them... Never! You have a couple of old transistor radios around the house with corroded batteries inside them.... You were a half an hour late for an appearance and blamed it on the directions you received from the sales person.... You've run a phone contest and nobody called, so you made up a name and gave the tickets to your cousin... People who ride in your car exclaim, "Why is your radio so loud?" .. You remember when people actually thought radio was important....

The following is the mindset of incoming freshmen into college: The people who are staring college this fall across the nation were born in 1983. They are too young to remember the space shuttle blowing up. Their lifetime has always included AIDS. Bottle caps have always been screw off and plastic. The CD was introduced the year they were born. They have always had an answering machine. They have always had cable. They can not fathom not having a remote control. Jay Leno has always be on the Tonight Show. Popcorn has always been cooked in the microwave. They never took a swim and thought about Jaws. They can't imagine what hard contact lenses are. They don't know who Mork was or where he was from. They never heard: "Where's the Beef?", "I'd walk a mile for a Camel", or "de plane Boss, de plane". They don't care who shot J.R. and have no idea who J.R. even is. Michael Jackson has always been white. McDonald's never came in Styrofoam containers. They don't have a clue how to use a typewriter. Do you feel old yet? Pass this on to the other old fogies in your life.

Three older women are sitting naked in the sauna. Suddenly there is a beeping sound. The first woman presses her forearm and the beeping stops. The others look at her curiously. "That's my pager," she says, I have a microchip under the skin of my arm." A few minutes later a phone rings. The second woman lifts her palm to her ear. When she explains, "That's my mobile phone. I have a microchip in my hand." The third woman, feeling decidedly low-tech, steps out of the sauna. In a few minutes she returns with a piece of toilet paper hanging from her butt. The others raise their eyebrows. She says "Oh excuse me, I am getting a fax"
SENILITY God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones that I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.Now that I’m ‘older’ (but refuse to grow up), here’s what I’ve discovered ONE - I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it left. TWO - My wild oats have turned into prunes and All Bran. THREE -I finally got my head together; now my body is falling apart. FOUR - Funny, I don’t remember being absent minded... FIVE - All reports are in; life is now officially unfair. SIX - If all is not lost, where is it? SEVEN - It is easier to get older than it is to get wiser. EIGHT - Some days you’re the dog; some days you’re the hydrant. NINE - I wish the buck stopped here; I sure could use a few... TEN - It’s hard to make a comeback when you haven’t been anywhere. ELEVEN - The only time the world beats a path to your door is when you’re in the bathroom. TWELVE - If God wanted me to touch my toes, he would have put them on my knees. THIRTEEN - When I’m finally holding all the cards, why does everyone decide to play chess? FOURTEEN - It’s not hard to meet expenses... they’re everywhere. FIFTEEN - The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth. SIXTEEN - These days, I spend a lot of time thinking about the hereafter...I go somewhere to get something and then wonder what I’m here after.
