22 Adults Who Forgot They Were Old Until Reality Took a Swing at Them

There comes a time in everyone’s life in which one has to admit that thing that nobody ever wants to admit: we’ve grown old. Yup, it’s terrible, but someday everyone has to realize and then admit that they are no longer as fast, as agile, or as strong as they were before. Just thinking about the word “old” can make some people cringe. But there’s nothing to worry about because, as we said before, it is something that you simply can’t avoid. So maybe the best solution is just to take it lightly and even joke around about the fact that you’ve gotten old.

Or at least that’s what a lot of people on Reddit think as well. A user thought it was a good idea to ask the community to share the story of how and when they realized they became old. Bright Side, of course, selected some of the funniest stories for you.
