At 47, I'm in that weird "not quite old, but no longer young" area. Middle-aged is a good term. Anyway, a constant reminder of the "no longer young" part is that these days my youngest co-workers have parents my age.

whippersnappers!

I clearly remember a time before call waiting, etc. If the person wasn't home you could often leave a message (on an analog recorder; some folks didn't have "a machine" yet), but if you got a busy signal there was nothing to do except try again later.
