You Know You're Old When...
A couple of younger guys say hi and ask how you're doing? You answer, "Living the life of Riley," and they look at you like you barfed on your shirt and one of your hearing aids is hanging-out of your ear.

Well since the phrase originated in a popular song of the 1880's I would have to agree with you.

Re: You Know You're Old When...
My husband, who is also old, and myself talked about this thread at dinner.


We were trying to figure out approximately when the expression was in vogue and we figured it was something that was OUR GRANDPARENTS generation.


I don't believe anyone alive today ever USED that expression in their own youth.


I looked it up online and this is what it said:

The phrase originated in the Irish/American community of the USA, in the early part of the 20th century. The first printed citation of it that I have found is from the Connecticut newspaper The Hartford Courant, December 1911 - in a piece headed 'Bullet Ends Life of Famous Wild Cow':



1911...1911....1911.....

I'm 65 and my own grandmother, who was born in 1900, was a child when that expression was first used.


1911....1911....1911....


The expression was popular ONE HUNDRED YEARS AGO.



A HUNDRED YEARS AGO PEOPLE....THIS PERSON CLAIMS HE'S OLD BECAUSE NO ONE KNOWS AN EXPRESSION THAT IS 100 YEARS OLD!!!!!!!!!!!

Just to give you an idea of how completely LAME responding as he did really is.


IT'S 100 YEARS OLD>

Without touching Google, strictly from my recollection, there was a TV show in the 50's starring William Bendix, called, "The Life Of Riley." Now, on the show Riley was a well-meaning dunderhead as I recall, but the phrase, "Living the life of Riley" means you are comfortable, your shit is together, you have it made.

Now I Google...

Yeah, I got the TV show right but the phrase is from 1880's as stated.

"life of Riley. Also,life of Reilly. An easy life, as in Peter had enough money to take off the rest of the year and live the life of Riley. This phrase originated in a popular song of the 1880s, “Is That Mr. Reilly?” by Pat Rooney, which described what its hero would do if he suddenly came into a fortune."

it's just some asshole who is trying to make the point that wearing a hearing aid is just as repulsive, disgusting,
embarrassing, as throwing up on yourself.


Yea, I think most people think that. I know for myself whenever I see someone with a hearing aid I get really, really queasy and run to the bathroom.

There's nothing quite like the smell of a person with a hearing aid, and especially when it might be hanging from their ear. Horrible. Just horrendous.

I've actually seen younger people pick up heavy objects and try to stone the hard of hearing right where they stand.
