  • You know you are Old when you have to!!!

    I was in Murfreesboro,Tn this past Monday and stopped to pick up some Adult beverages,I was staying at the BestWestern Hotel next to I24,well the bottles were not the twist the top off tops it required a old fashion bottle opener.So I stopped off at the front desk and asked the clerk if she had one,She said no so I walked over to the Cracker Barrel Restaurant and asked the young cashier,If they sold any,He said he did'nt understand what I was asking for,but a worker around my age pointed me to the only Old fashioned bottle openers that was a TN Vol opener and every time you used it.The Tn Vol song Rocky top would play,the cost $8.99 I paid it and walked back to the Hotel,My wife,pulled up to hard a broke the opener,which played Rocky Top all night long,until the next morning and found the screw that popped out and fixed the opener,All that for a bottle of CORONA EXTRA!

    I hope you were on your last beer when it broke!
    It's 106 miles to Chicago, we've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses....Hit it!

        Maybe not old, but at least no longer "hip"

        If you ever tune into Saturday Night Live and you have no idea who both the guest host or musical guest are, or what they're famous for, you're there.

                A buddy and I found ourselves in that situation when we went to a drug school. We improvised and tried some MacGyver stuff, if you use the hanging part of the hotel coat hanger with the two prongs that hook onto the rest of the hanger it works like a charm.

                  You know you're getting old when they're playing "Stairway to Heaven" on the easy listening stations.

                        You could have used a lighter to open the bottle. Works just as good as a bottle opener. I've seen some guys who open bottles with their teeth, but that's just weird

                          What's an MP4? I'm not even old I don't know what that is.

                            ...or when the new secretary at the station sees a typewriter and asks "Where is the monitor", and is totally serious. While explaining just what she was looking at I asked her if she had ever heard of an 8 track tape, care to guess the answer? On the lighter side she did know what those big black flat round things were, "people used to listen to them somehow and they made music". I think we must have really lowered our standards.

                              Or knife I have seen open a can up.

                              My question is why did you need a bottle opener, I never use one. I always drink out of long neck bud light bottles to.
