A swift kick in the ego.
So I'm at work, busting ass. Someone (female) comes up and buys beer. Naturally I card her and she leave with booze in hand because she is old enough.

My co-worker asks how old she was, (God knows why) and I say she was only a couple of months older than me.

My co-worker goes: "Wow, she's old."

Dead silence in the store. 30 seconds later, he starts busting up and I'm getting the rubber bands to start shooting at him.

This has happened before, at USAR drill. Some of the others were looking at my driver license, saying that "26? You're old."

When did 26 become "old"? >/

In our dumbass Youth Is Teh King culture it's shrinking all the time despite the average life span getting longer.

People are gonna start having midlife crisis at 21 because they keep being told in High School such lovely things like "these are the best years of your life". Which is the single biggest load of crap any human being has ever said to another.

Already children are skipping their childhoods to look, speak, act, and angst like teenagers as early as age 8. Pretty soon the moment kids are born instead of cutting the cord there will already be someone on hand asking the baby "HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WITH YOUR LIFE?! WHAT ARE YOUR POLITICS?! WILL NICK AND JESSICA GET BACK TOGETHER?, YOU'RE FAT, BUY THIS IT'LL MAKE YOU LOOK AND FEEL BETTER!"

You may live to be 102 years old but age 15-19 will be considered your "prime".

The next time you get a comment like that, ask the person how old they are and if they are younger just say "I feel sorry for you." :p
