Curious - How Old Is Everybody?


For me, it was when I went to a thrift store to buy a stationary power tool they'd advertised on Craigslist. It was a great deal and I was thrilled I was able to jump on it before it got snatched up.

At the checkout, the woman asked me if I was 55 or older, in which case I qualified for their "Senior Tuesday" 25% discount. It turned a great deal into a screaming deal but it was also the worst best news I'd gotten in a long time.
I’m in my mid-forties and still get carded-though less often every year-for drinks and at the liquor store. I want the baby face to hold out long enough to get carded at an establishment where I qualify for the senior discount.

65. I just finished Medicare enrollment. A+B+G+D is better than any group plan I've ever had or ACA Platinum.
  • Insanely flexible - if I want to go to Cedars Sinai, I go to Cedars Sinai or Mayo or .... No restrictive network
  • No insurance company pre-authorizations
  • Costs me about $164.90 + $139.28 (AARP/UHC) + $4.50 (SilverScript SmartRX PDP) per month with a $226 deductible with no copays/coinsurance
  • BTW, 'free' Medicare Advantage costs $164.90 plus copays + coinsurance and preauthorizations
  • AARP Plan G includes some Dental+Vision+Hearing discounts and a health club membership
The retired docs I know are on Plan F or G.

fukkin kids these days respect ;-)

I'm 53
"The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers."

65, with 90 year old knees and back.

Soon after hooking up with SWMBO, she was asked if I was her father.. I'm only 18 months older than her, at 27 she was still being thrown out of bars for being under age..
36 years later she has grey in her hair no one asks that anymore.

Chronologically 64, though currently feel biologically 99.
Though I don’t look a day over 63… trying to transition to retirement without the rainbow, though will probably have to work till I’m 100 to support the kids…
