Students Feel 29 Is Very Old

A group of students were having coffee and exchanging stories about how they all came to be in a particular class. One of the students explained that he had changed majors and spent a brief period working for a software company. The others looked appeared perplexed and finally asked how old the student was. He said that he was 29.
The others students reacted with disbelief. Wow, one of them said, you don't look that old.
Maybe that's because 29 isn't that old, the student said.
No, it's way old, said one of them. It's almost thirty, and my dad's only like forty something.

A magazine cover told me 60 is the new 30 and based on that, I am just a kid. Someday, they will wake up at an age they used to think was old and remark how young they look.

It depends on the person's age as to what is old. My 14 yr old thinks 25 is old..........i'm 41..29 is young to me. lol
