Recently, I published a post about a viral Reddit thread where a user asked millennials and Gen X'ers to share what makes them feel old as shit. Warner Bros. Television Well, the post really resonated with some BuzzFeed readers, who also chimed in to comment about the moments where they felt old. So, I decided to round up a few of those oh-too-relatable comments about moments and things that made readers feel old as dirt: 1.

"I was talking about gaming with a student and he mentioned the Game Boy Color, which I had as a child, and then told me he got it because he loves 'retro gaming.'
I've also discovered with some of my doctors that I've had diabetes longer than they've been alive."

"My most recent 'I'm old' moment happened a few months ago. I am 49. one of the women I went to grade school with is now a great-grandmother. You did not misread that: great-grandmother.
Please be kind to your peers and don't start churning the kids out till you're in your mid-20s at least, please. I'm still recovering from having a friend only one year older than me that's got a great-grandchild. My own grandma didn't even become a great-grandmother till she was in her 60s, so I was not prepared for this."

"My first 'I'm old' moment came on my 34th birthday. I was watching a
Cheers rerun on the TV and coincidentally it was the episode where it was Norm's bday. Coach and Sam asked him how old he was...he said...34!
I screamed. I fell out of my chair. I screamed again. Norm was freaking 34!!! I grew up watching
Cheers. What tha efffffffff. I've never been the same since."

"I told my 21-year-old niece earlier this year that she was as pretty as
Heidi Klum in some of her Easter photos. She responded: 'That old woman?' Lol, I almost died. I thought it was a great compliment. She also didn’t know who TLC was."

"I checked my roster of ninth graders for this coming year and they were all born the year I graduated high school. That sent me into a bit of a crisis, I’ll admit."

"I had a dentist appointment and the dentist was 28, I am 30 — he also looked super young. I walked in and literally blurted out, 'Wow you are young!' He laughed."

"I put the definition to 'Fergalicious' into the class vocabulary slide show…not a single seventh grader had any idea who Fergie is."

"I was in a doctor's office when 'This Love' by Maroon 5 played...on the 'oldies' station and now I'm not okay, LOL."

"I always used to think athletes were so much older than me. Now I'm 35, and I'm older than most professional athletes so a lot of them look like babies to me."

"I went back to college a few years ago, and I was devastated to see young people in my history of journalism class talking loudly during the 9/11 lecture — they weren't listening. In a class of 200-plus, I have never seen a professor stop a lecture to scold anyone. We had been behaving for other lectures. I started to understand that the younger group was taught this subject over and over again in school like we were taught about the JFK Assassination. But, it broke my heart, and upset the professor as that was one of the hardest things we’ve both ever had to witness in our lives. That’s when I felt old."

"Full-grown adults that were born after 2000! Bars only needing to ID if your birth year starts with a 2…🤯😱, LOL."

"Eight years ago, the day my YOUNGER brother turned 50. It was like I just woke up from a coma, I looked around and muttered to myself, 'What the fuck just happened?'"

"I have a 1979 Camaro that I purchased used in 2000. I now work with people who weren't born when I bought the car. I can go to a bar and have a drink with people who haven't been alive for as long as I've owned the car."

"Last Christmas we had a two-day blizzard (Ontario!) and lost power. My husband's phone was the only one working. We still have a landline because we pay almost nothing for it, so I took out my old telephone and plugged it in. My husband had to go get more gas for our generator and I told him to call several times to let me know he's okay.
So, later the phone rings and I couldn't get to it, so I tell my 14-year-old to get it. I look over to see him and my 10-year-old standing there, both staring at it. I yell, 'PICK UP THE TOP PART!' So he does, but then looks over at me like he's still not sure. So I yell, 'PUT IT TO YOUR EAR!' and he does, but again unsure, I then yell, 'SAY HELLO!!!' I was annoyed in the moment, because panic, but it's pretty funny that using an old-school phone stumped him. lol He later said, 'I've seen them on TV and stuff but I still didn't really know what to do in real life!' 🤣"
