Yea, you heard me. Is it when you start getting mail from AARP? I won’t open up that crap. I chuck it. Is it when you get barraged about buying life insurance? Is it when you have to say “WHAT” four times before you actually hear what someone is saying? Does it have to do with a certain age? Like when you’re 62 you are automatically elderly because you can collect Social Security. Is it when your memory starts failing you?
I want to know if I am freakin’ elderly. Is it when young dudes call you Ma’am?
|Noun||1.||ma’am – a woman of refinement; “a chauffeur opened the door of the limousine for the grand lady”
grande dame – a middle-aged or elderly woman who is stylish and highly respected
madame – title used for a married Frenchwoman
I would rather be called almost anything other than Ma’am. And if anyone ever offers me a senior citizen discount I’ll cane them. I’d rather pay more than be called a senior citizen. Oh, and then we come back to the politically correct term, get this–a citizen of advanced years. WTF?
I wonder if you are considered elderly when you have to wear paper towels as a bib cause you spill on your T-shirts a lot. Oh, please tell me no.
Or is it when you start wearing clothes that are a little inappropriate.
Or is it when you are willing to spend $150 on some cream that’s supposed to get rid of fine lines and huge wrinkles.
Or is it all in your head?
