You are old if you remember having vinyl LPs, 33's and 8 track tapes.

Or

If you used to wear Angels Flight Pants with platform shoes or Dittos Saddle back jeans.

You know you're old if you remember...
...when $7 used to fill up the gas tank in your car.
...when Aids was a diet candy
...the smell of a mimeograph machine
...when gas stations used to be full service
...actually writing letters to people (no e-mail)

When you can recall that it cost 12 cents to mail a letter, and recalling my mother throwing a fit when the price for a child's movie ticket increased to one dollar.   This was around circa 1973.

The world's fascination with sex annoys you so much that you need to turn off the radio as you drive to the store to buy your little blue pills.

I think what is meant is the OLD ding of a gas pump when it struck the gallons.

My town still has Fire Whistles and you can hear noon whistles in nearby fire companies.

How about this, regarding gas.

We had "regular" and "premium".

Old times remember "Regular" and "Unleaded". What is now "Regular" used to be called "Unleaded" and what is now called "Leaded" was "Regular". There was also "White Gas" but I don't remember what it was used for other than lanterns. Now that is basically "Coleman Fuel".

Or when you keep telling people you are xx age year after year, never changing the number. Not because you want to lie. But because you simply forget you got older.
