You Know you're too young when...

You say what is tape recorder?

Who is Walter Cronkite or Marilyn Monroe?

You cannot balance your checkbook without calculator.

You ask who cares to drive Volkswagen bug?...

I love it when I play music with some teenage students - to them Mozart, Bach, the Beatles and Glen Miller are all from the same era! They enjoy playing most "old music", but to them it is all "old music".

In Dutch, ancient music (Medieval, Renaissance...) is called 'oude muziek', old music.

Once, when I opened a deskdrawer, the father of the family I had in my office, looking at the CD's I had there (it was before MP3-age), asked: "What kind of music do you listen to?"
"Well," I said, "Mostly barock and ancient music (oude muziek)."
And the son exclaimed: "That's like my father... He has lots of ancient music too, like Abba and the like..."

you don't hold open a door for an elderly or disabled person

you think twitting -- sorry, meant tweeting -- 140 characters equals writing a novel in a known language

That page really reminded me of that "My Super Sweet Sixteen" show where sometimes the people would throw a tantrum if they didn't get the exact right type and colour of car. Where do these people COME from?
