Top 50 Signs You Are Getting Old, Any Of These Apply To You?!

Remember when you were younger and you could rage all night long and into the morning like it was nothing.  You could drink and a hangover might last 2 hours at the longest.  You didn't need a nap to get through your day.  You didn't think about what you ate, you just ate it and kept it moving.

According to Brobible there was a survey done of 2000 adults and what they felt made them old.  Take a look at the list and see how many apply to you and your life! LOL
