Feedback on being told I'm too old

Never Too Old


Oh, you are... are you? Contest Winner 
You are too old to wear your hair like that
My oldest daughter told me
That was all I needed to hear
As I sat in the hairdresser's chair

You are too old for those tight fitting jeans
They belong on a much younger person
They didn't have them when I was young
As long as they fit, I'll wear them

You are too old to go back to school
Your knowledge is far outdated
Within a month students clamored
For me to help them with their classes

You are too old to learn new ways
Technology is way beyond you
Who do you think designed it
And brought it from then to now

The problems with our juniors
They think age is a deterrent
I guess they're just too young right now
Once they're old, they'll understandf
