    Too many assumptions about the gym

    1. Anyone walking around in public with headsets on should be shot.
    2. Wait a bit and watch on your big screen HD TV. Fart to your hearts content.
    3. Who is Jessie Williams and who cares?
    4. Farting is how geezers prevent bloating.
    5. Your taller than he is, just turn in his direction and piss on him.
    6. Tight skin? If you bend over far enough, all the skin on your ass will appear tight.
    7. Walk around it.
    8. Use your handicap sticker and cut out that old granny from that nifty spot close in at the market. She can user her walker.
    9. Of course, you don't want that bastard talking back.

    Marlow does not have a clue. Too many days at sea.

    In my 20 years in Uncle Sam's Canoe Club, I spent MAYBE 6 days at sea . . . so there!

    Thanks for this post. They say laughter is the best medicine and this gave me some good medicine today!! And I am not even to 50 yet.

    2. I hate when anyone talks during movies.
    4. More places than just the gym unfortunately!
    5. Not just the 10 year old, but anyone who still has the ability.

    How about all those annoying SOB's who wear their pants in such a manner as to allow us to see most, if not all of their underwear.

    On the other hand, people object to my fashion sense too . . .

    :lol: :lol: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The funny thing about those pictures. The kids think it is cool. The old guys realize it may not be, but they just don't care. Maybe it something that is earned after putting up with the world for so many years.

    At 81, (or is it 82?) I qualify as an old geezer on most counts enumerated. Except for the "old" part.

    But, to pick a nit: The thread is phrased as a question. Are these jeremey's personal annoyances and he is asking if they qualify him for geezerhood? Or, is he seeking solace in knowng that others of a certain age share his idiosyncracies?

    Some are symptoms of geezerness, some are applicable to all ages but the list is far from exhaustive. In fact, exhaustion is a common trait among geezers.

    As is:
    Disapproval of: Ostentatious consumption.
    Waste of anything that is still useful.
    Overly exuberant public displays of affection.
    Much/most of what passes for music and entertainment now-a-days.
    Excessive and disfiguring piercing and tattoos.

    And, most important: Soccer replacing baseball as the national youth sport. (Admittedly, they get more exercise but, somehow, it just ain't American.
