Signs You Are Grown Up

6: AM is when you get up, not when you go to bed.

You hear your favorite song on an elevator.

You watch the Weather Channel.

You go from 130 days of vacation time to 14.

Jeans and a sweater no longer qualify as "dressed up."

You're the one calling the police because those damn kids next door won't turn down the stereo.

You don't know what time Taco Bell closes any more.

Your car insurance goes down and your payments go up.

You feed your dog Science Diet instead of McDonald's leftovers.

Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt.

You no longer take naps from noon to 6 PM.

Dinner and a movie is the whole date -- instead of the beginning of one.

Eating a basket of chicken wings at 3 AM would severely upset, rather than settle, your stomach.
"I'll be the designated driver," replaces, "I'm never going to drink that much again."

90% of the time you spend in front of a computer is for 'real work.'

You no longer drink at home to save money before going to a bar.

And the NUMBER ONE sign that you've grown up...

You read this entire list looking desperately for one sign that doesn't apply to you!


  1. Well, crap, I guess I'm a grown up. How did you know I get up at 6am everyday?

  2. Because I do, too, lol. And to think, when I was a teen, how it used to annoy me that my mother always got up that early! :D

  3. Thanks for the giggles, Ann. And yes, I get up at 6am too. Y'know, though -- I wasn't that great at being a teen. I'm relieved it's now okay not to be wild. :)
