    I'm dreading the whole aging process. I'm only 40, have been going grey and bald since 25 , and the aches and pains are adding up way too quick. I can't imagine how 70 or 75 is going to feel at this rate. Of course, by then they'll have figured out how to freeze the aging process, which will be great for the young folks of that area,but those of us who are old already will be written off as unsalvagable. I suspect the eternally youthful up-and-coming generation will be filled with scorn for the dwindling number of tottering old farts still in their midst.I must have wayyy too much free time to think of this stuff.....

    Some of our applicants were born after I got into LE.

    Our minimum age is 21 [Frown]

    I had two bad experiences...
    The first, I was at a crime scene and the criminologist showed up with a female college intern. I noticed her, but didn't talk to her or anything. The next day the criminologist was laughing and told me that the girl asked if I was married. ( I was about 44 then). The officer told her that she didn't know, but it didn't matter, I was too old for her. The intern replied, " Not for me, for my MOM!"

    The second time I was investigating a police involved shooting and noticed the officer was born AFTER I had become a cop!

    Yikes!

    I am in the process of retiring medically and while sitting in my dr's office i overheard a conversation between two males.

    I know they were talking english but as to exactly what they said, who knows.

    I am 49 and used up i guess

    OK, so you cant own firearms, but your kids can shoot people on a beach in Northern France on certain days?

    Sounds to me like you're all a bunch of puppies! But then, I have white hair and wear bifocals-- next to me, everybody's a puppy!

    Ha, I was feeling old (31 btw) until I got to my new unit. I'm the youngest by 12 years and they all laughed when I told them I had 8 years service. I have to make a lot of tea and coffee (although I make sure it tastes really bad )
    When all is said and done though, they are a great bunch and don't rag me too much.
    My wife picks up the 2 kids of some friends of ours from school, they are 8 and 10. The 8 year old has just been doing D Day at school. When I got in last Thursday, he asked me if I was there [Eek!] [Eek!]

    Round my way "Wifebeater" means premium strength lager, specifically Stella Artois, if that means anything to those on the other side of the Pond.

    Thanks for the link with the slang directory, it was fat.
    I can be like my daug in the five-o with me, Fresh.
    I'll break with the old now this directory is with me, no jargon.

    Peace out blood.

    My Sgt. had the same thing. Young pup (21) calls out the description of a suspect running from him and says he's wearing a "wifebeater" shirt. Sarge thought it was a brand name or that it had "WIFEBEATER" written across it.

    I'm 31. But I'm hip. I'm with it. I can do the Macarena. Surely that must impress them ...

    I only started realising how old I am (I AM ONLY 30) when I ask the kid I have just arrested his/her date of birth. When they tell you and you think "hell, I remember what I was doing that day!!", that you realise how old you have become (or how young the people I arrest are these days!)

    As for street slang, Im I right in thinking that "THATS BAD MAN" is actually "THATS QUITE GOOD REALLY MATE" ???????

    Oh well, I will still continue to go to nightclubs and put up with people looking at me like their dad just walked in.

    I think you should laugh at teenagers. I'm always doing that because they sound stupid. I'm in my mid-twenties and coach track in the Spring.
