"I'm too old for this sh*t"

The iconic words of Roger Murtaugh, portrayed by Danny Glover, in the Lethal Weapon movies.

A thought that all of us have with each passing year, both about things we're now tired of doing, and things we once loved, but don't find as much joy in any more.

After hitting the big 3-0, we find ourselves increasingly surprised by the things we used to find fun, but now might find almost intolerable.

Redditor nonchalannt was curious to hear the things people lost their taste for after their 30th birthday, leading them to ask:

"What's not "cool" anymore when you turn 30?"


Actually worrying about anything being "cool"!

"Being cool."

"Actually for me it was around 35, because I like banging my head into a wall."

"But others started realizing earlier than me."

"Everyone I knew started realizing that all of the things I thought were cool when we were 20 were actually really, really dumb and unimportant and weren't interested in them anymore."

"And I'm not even married or have kids, I can't imagine how stupid the sh*t I was into would seem if I had a family."

"However, video games I played when I was young still seem cool to literally everyone my age, so that didn't change even though I expected it would."

Early to bed, early to rise... or at least early to bed...

"I value my sleep a lot more at 30 than I did at 29."

"It scares me."

"Sleep deprivation."- Hoppy_Croaklightly

Yeah...I'll just have one glass

"Hangovers."- writer_rat

I'll pay up for convenience.

"Teenager/early 20’s: 'yo we can save money by booking the 7am return flight and not paying for accommodation - lets just stay at the club until 5am or sleep on the airport floor!'"

"30yo: I’d rather die."- Gravesens1stTouch

I'll be transparent, and I'll honor my plans!

"Bailing on plans last minute."

"If you don’t want to do something, just say so."- freakanature

Dude, we graduated over ten years ago!

"Bragging about your high school accomplishments."- Hysterical_Realist

Yeah... I'll get my own...

"Sleeping 8 to a hotel room to save money."- UrDraco

So this is what it's like to have a savings account...

Life is meant to be enjoyed.

"Here's some prospective from way in your future."

"I'm 64."

"When I was in my 50's my motto was, 'Oh, well'."

"I have 2 mottoes for my 60's."

"'Anyway, doesn't matter', and 'I don't need that stress in my life'."

"It's a great place to live."

Our tastes and interests change with each passing year.

Hence why staying up till 5am drinking straight from the bottle and eating nothing but potato chips might not have the same appeal.

Though no one should look back on those moments with shame or embarrassment.

After all, a good time was had by all, and that's what your 20s were for.

People Describe The Exact Moment They Realized Their Friends Were A-Holes

Everyone has friends who you become less and less close to with each passing year.

This isn't always by choice, though, but simply by circumstance, when your lives both take different directions.

In some cases, however, we do find ourselves making a very conscious decision to stop spending time with certain friends.

Owing to the fact that these people might not be our friends after all.

In certain cases, the communication ends as the result of one specific moment.

We all have songs that we can't get out of our heads, resulting in our randomly humming them while walking down the street.

Among the most infectious songs are theme songs to TV shows.

Be it from tuning in every week to catch up with Friends who will always" be there for [us]", or being "stuck in the middle" of a Grace And Frankie binge, we often find ourselves humming the theme songs of our favorite shows more often than we find ourselves quoting the best lines.

Even if it means humming an infectious melody to a wordless piece of music (Will & Grace or Seinfeld anyone?)

Who hasn't had a moment when they learned what they thought was a revelatory piece of information, ran to share it with their friends, and were then greeted by a barrage of stone faces?

Owing to the fact that what we only just learned a few minutes ago, was apparently common knowledge.

These include your favorite movie star was in fact the offspring of another movie star, what gelatin is actually made of, or little tricks and strategies which make certain experiences so much more pleasurable.

For no particular reason, some people learn these things far later than just about everyone else.

I'm a simple person when it comes to video games.

I prefer to go with nostalgia.

All of these fancy deals put me on sensory overload.

But my goodness the technology really has come a long way.

And there are actual storylines and drama.

Good for y'all gamers.
