What incident makes you feel old for the first time?

Finding out that children I babysat were graduating high school was a big one for me. I just can't imagine those kids all grown up. Since I moved away from the place where I lived when I was younger, I didn't see that process happening, and only realized they had grown up when I heard that news. Another thing that makes me feel old these days is working with many people younger than me, and having to explain so many things to them that I am interested in or enjoy. I'll never forget when a girl I worked with was talking about a "new song" she liked and it turned out to be a remake of one by my favorite artist that came out before she was even born!
