As if those sudden, unexplainable aches ad pains you feel each morning isn’t already a sign that you’re getting old, apparently some of the every day things you do are a sure tip off to some that you are part of an older generation.

The UK energy retailer Love Energy Savings polled a group of Millenials to find out what are some of the clear signs that a person is old and some of the results may shock you.

Apparently, if you have cash in your wallet you are ancient;

28% of people say that using cash is one of the biggest signs that you’re old.

Another dead give away? - Putting a hankie up your sleeve, which another 28% see as a sign of old age.
