    Its all good while a younger sibling is telling you this, my mum not long ago told me I was out of touch lol
    In my defense- she was talking about celebrities, I have no idea who is divorcing/marrying who. I really have no desire to know though- I don't know if this really does make me old
    I know even less about these new celebrities DD tells me about- and where the hell does she hear about them?!? Oh and music I am so out touch there!

    Some mentioned eyebrows- now what is going on there?!?

    I don't know what "WWW" is?

    I use Instagram for stalking celebrities, apart from that I don't understand why you wouldn't just use Facebook.

    Despite having an iPhone attached to me at all times I don't really use any apps apart from Internet banking.

    Sad, sad, sad.
    I think not knowing what WWW is makes you young, not old!

    I am pleased this was started. I'm usually cluey with the acronyms but I can never remember SMH. Honestly, I have googled it so many times and thought "oh yeah!" Then a few months later I'm wondering why they are talking about the Sydney morning herald again.

    - i have never downloaded anything (music, tv shows, movies) from the internet
    - I had no idea what smh meant
    - i ask my dh/FIL to do upload all my virus protection stuff on my laptop as I wouldn't have a clue how to do it
    - I wouldn't know anything about the latest gadgets
    - I don't know how Bluetooth works
    - I have never hashtagged

    Default OMG It's happened. I'm old.

    I'm definitely not down with the kids. Haven't been for ages. I just don't understand their crazy clothes and weird hair. But I'm totally fine with it and openly admit to being out of touch, which I think makes me cool

    That pretty much all falls under the jurisdiction of my IT department (DH).

    This thread is making me feel old! I'll be another year older on Wednesday too.

    I have snapchat but I only snap two people, my cousin and we send each other mundane stuff like food or what our kids are doing and a young guy from work about random things as well, I'm not sure what the purpose of if really is but I understand it enough to use it

    Default OMG It's happened. I'm old.

    Music makes me feel old.

    So is it because I'm getting older or is music today just awful?!?

    Like seriously, I looked at a top 10 list the other day, I didn't know any of the songs, then I youtubed them (which is a young thing to do I think?) and they are garbage....(not talking about the band either- another reference that makes me feel old, I was into them TWENTY YEARS AGO)
