I Knew I Was A Grown Up When...

8:43 AM - 1 Jul 2015



When did you realise you'd grown up? For me it was sometime in between buying a house and being referred to as "lady" instead of "girl" when out and about - e.g. - "this lady has a query", instead of "this girl was wondering...". When did THAT happen? (Also; as a sidenote - LADY?! Moi? LOL) 

 

The listeners of the Early Breakfast Show - also known as my favourite people in the world - were quick to chime in with their own experiences of when they realised they had grown up. Have a look!

You HAVE grown up when you start drinking wine end eating brie on the sofa!

Good morning Paula. You know you’re getting old when the barber asks you will I trim the eyebrows as well? Huge AC/DC fan so keep up the good work! Pat in Cork

Morning Paula...realised I was a grown up when the birthday parties I was being invited to were no longer 21st or 30th - but for 1 or 2 year olds! Louise Waterford

You know you're old when you put clothes ON to go to bed

Hi Paula I know I'm growing up when I look for cover when it starts to rain, or the price of concert tickets are no longer in the pocket P.J .in Laois.

You know you’re a grown up when the cougars ignore you and the MILFsare younger than you L

You know you’re grown up when the most common words u hear are "no daddy, why daddy, I want that, daddy" and when you can eat or go to the jacks without an audience! David Cuddy Laois

Paula I knew I'd grown up  last Tuesday at about 4pm when I found a small stick in my garden and thought, "that'll be handy for stirring paint" Niall in Tipp

Knew I had grown up when I had to pay full whack going to hurling matches. Paul in firhouse

Paula, I think you realise you’re growing up when your Christmas prezzies turn from toys to clothes and scents! Mike

Paula I knew I was getting old when I needed to sit down in a pub :) Ger in Cork

Hey Paula -I finally realised I was growing up when I started looking at girls’ hands for wedding rings before I tried to talk to them! Thanks, Seamus in Limerick.

Hey Paula - Ollie from Galway here. I realised I had grown up when I got divorced a few years ago and realised I had to cook, clean, iron and constantly nag at myself

I knew I had grown up when I realised I'd rather sit in on a Saturday night with my 2 little princesses instead of going out on the tare! And I used to be the ultimate beer hound! But the hangover is just not worth it anymore! Kevin.
