You know that you're old when?

You know that you're old when you still think that the word dogging refers to a walk in the countryside with a mate or two, your lurchers, terriers and ferrets.
How the English language changes over such a short period of time eh?

Can you think of any other previously innocent words or phrases that have been altered or hi jacked ? If you put any examples that you can think of down on here, then we could have a 'gay old time' of it.

What on earth have you been up to over there??? What a strange discussion topic for first thing in the morning    
bodger

We're an hour ahead. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
tracyfitz

Grief. I wait in eagerness for the next discussion topic....
bodger

It doesn't do for anybody, or forum for that matter to be too predictable.
debbie

er, now I don't like to ask but I am going to and it must prove that I am positively ancient - or that I live on a farm in the middle of no where and obviously don't get out enough but what DOES dogging mean then...have you been having somethign you shouldn't have over there?
Polly

Who wants to be the one to explain the modern meaning of 'dogging' then?  And will you be speaking from experience?  
MrsWW

Definitely not speaking from experience but, let's put it this way, bearing in mind we're a family forum here . . . . . . . persons with their partners who are exhibitionists, have a car, a quiet layby and don't mind who's watching.  Get my drift?
Polly

I did hear that it goes on in specific car parks as well Mrs W - and that Steve McFadden who plays Phil Mitchell in Eastenders and several other celebrities have indulged themselves from time to time.  So, if you go, you might get some half decent autographs at the same time!

Well explained Teri.....  
Border

Voyeur's paradise.  

Google " best dogging sites" you never know there might be a site near you, where you can get some good autographs.  
debbie

I'm not joking but I have NEVER heard that before and I'm not that old really
bodger

Its probably safer to stick with the word ferreting, unless of course that has a hidden meaning these days

In the early 1970's I bought my brother a shirt - quite trendy at the time red with diagonal stripes - for his birthday.  

Mum said "Oh! That's lovely its so gay"  Needless to say shirt never worn and another useful word gone from the English language!!!!!  

All the best

When I was in hospital a lovely lady in her nineties told a young Moslem doctor he was a lovely cheerful and gay young man. He went totally ballistic, asking her how she could say such a dreadful thing and his father would disown him etc etc--totally O.T.T. especially to a patient--I was in the next bed and explained to him that the lady had meant it as a complement and it had a different meaning for her---to be fair he had the grace to apologise and look shamefaced. Made me realise the power of words and misunderstanding though.

Gay, oft used by songwrights and poets, now hi-jacked!

On the 'old, subject, when you follow a large young person in the street they take up less room for overtaking than a small older person, so when folks can't get by you on the pavement, even if your thin, you are OLD!
lottie

When you take the louts who deliberately block the pavement off at the knees with your shopping trolley rather than going in the road to get round them you are old and past caring.

When you find yourself in the "Ten Items or Less" queue with 11 items because you a) couldn't read the sign or b)were too old to be bothered by doing what you've been told or c) have forgotten how to count to 10.
bodger

On a serious historical note, now we know why the Flintstones died out.
horace

I am not sure all of them died out when you see some of the neanderthals that commit some of the crimes.
bodger

YEAH BUT! The neanderthals didn't have a dab a dabba do time,a gay old time.
Jonty

I'll fetch your coat.....
bodger

I'm gone.

You know you're old when.....................

It takes you all night to do what you used to do all night  
Polly

You know you're old when..................... You're asked if you can remember your 'first time' and you can't remember the LAST time!  
Slipster
