    This week I've been substituting at the elementary school (Maintenance).

    I had a couple Kindergarten students talking to me cause my little cousin goes there and is in their class, and they recognized me as the guy whom my cousin pointed out to them as his relative.

    One of them asked me "How old are you?"

    So I replied, "I'm 25".

    And he goes, "You look like you're 40."

    I'm not saying that 40 is old, but if I look 40 at 25, how will I look when I really am 40?

    Oh, and an extra bonus, this week so far I've gotten 2 free milks, some Pizza and breadsticks, a brownie, and 2 hotdogs. I love filling in cause I always seem to end up with free food.

    And kindergarteners don't know jack about age... I'm 22 and I couldn't tell a 50 year old from an 8 year old, I'm so horrible with estimating age...

    I am 40 years old, and most people think I’m in my late 20’s. That works for me. You’d think with all the years of abusing my body that I’d look much older then I do.

    The janitors for the school work evenings. I get to do stuff like fixing things, replacing lights, running errands, directing parking lot traffic, and helping teachers.

    They wanted a little desk extension for the front desk, just enough to hold a computer monitor. So I built one the other day, but the paint wasn't dry yet.

    So, to add a little humor to the day, as the paint was still wet on the "real" desk I built, I screwed together 4 pieces of scrap boards, and leaned it up to the existing desk when the receptionist was gone. She came back, and a bunch of us were there to watch her reaction... and she was like "Oh.... is this it?" in a really polite voice. Then once we started cracking up she finally realized that it was just a joke. I kinda felt bad cause she's such a sweet lady that she was actually trying to make the best out of accepting that it truly was the finished product.

    Yeah, if I shave (including my unibrow) I tend to look like I'm 15... at least I think I look that young without any facial hair. So I just let it all grow out for that mountain man effect.

    Everybody looks old to a kid. If you're 25 you only have five more years before the amulate embedded in your palm starts to flash red and the sandman hunts you down. :eek1:

    It has surprised me. When most people find out that I’m 40, they say bullsh_t, let’s see your drivers license. Then they’re like “ You look like you’re in your late 20’s. I would never have guessed you’re 40.” I think a lot of it has too do with my somewhat different hair style, the type of music I listen too, and my whole attitude about life. When I look in the mirror, I don’t see a young guy, I see a 40 Y/O guy. But hey, it’s cool most people think that I’m younger then I am. Helps with getting the chicks in their 20’s. :wink1: :wink1:

    You have that backwards. My mother lives with me. I'm the one who pays the rent and the utilities. What, it’s a bad thing that I take care of my mom ??? I care about my family. I couldn’t leave mom all by herself. I know what it’s like too be lonely, not too have anyone too talk to. I’m just not that cold hearted I guess. But nice try at the insult anyways. Just need too get your facts strait first next time, LOL.

    OK how about these facts...............

    For a lonely guy you seem to brag an awful lot about all the ass you get.
