Default You Know You're No Longer A Kid When...

This kinda goes with the "You Know You Grew Up in the 70'* and 80'* When..."

Here goes:

Just one peanut butter and jelly sandwich doesn't do it any more.

Driving a car doesn't always sound like fun.

The average ten-year-old doesn't have a clue who Bo and Luke Duke are.

Being bad is no longer cool.

You have friends who have kids.

Saturday mornings are for sleeping.

You are taller than the slide at the McDonald'* playland.

Your parents' jokes are now funny.

You have once said, "Whatch-you talkin' 'bout Willis?"

You have owned, and since disowned Michael Jackson'* Thriller.

Christmas starts to **** you off.

You would rather wear your dirty clothes again, 'cause mom is not there to do your laundry anymore.

Two words: parachute pants

Naps are good.

Hitting girls is no longer considered flirting.

You have onced deemed Space Invaders as "The best game ever".

When you know that the machines in gas station bathrooms don't dispense balloons.

When things go wrong, you can't just yell, "Do-over!"

Playboy'* Playmate of the month is younger than you.

The only thing in your cereal box is...cereal.

You actually buy scarves, gloves, and sunscreen.

Your idea of fun parties now include Chips 'n' Salsa and Snapple.

You leave concerts and ballgames early to beat the crowd.

You WANT clothes for Christmas.

You don't want a Trans Am because of the insurance premiums.

You remember when Saturday Night Live was funny.

You've bought an album on vinyl.

You remember seeing Star Wars when it first came out.

You read the "if you were born on this day in 19__ you are of legal age to buy alcohol" sign at the liquor store and recall attending a school dance on that date.

I was at the mall yesterday I saw a kid probley around 10 with his dad, the kid pointed to a General Lee diecast car and said "dad look fast and the furious car".
