This is a question Turning into your parents

Unable to hold back the genetic tide, I find myself gardening in my carpet slippers, asking for a knife and fork in McDonalds and agreeing with the Daily Telegraph. I'm beyond help - what about you?

Thanks to b3th for the suggestion

In the last couple of years i've started to develop holes in socks quite quickly.
I mean sometimes holes would appear within two or three wearings (I'm not sure of the official unit of sock usage measurement so we shall use wearings for the point of this rant).

This never used to happen and I can only put it down to either increasing volumes of hard rough skin on my feet or the kevlar/razor like substance that seems to grow where normal toenails once grew. The younger sneep would merely bin the holey socks or simply keep wearing them until at least 3 toes started poking out of the holes. The current older sneep instead found himself only last week turning to his wife and asking 'Love, do you know how to darn socks?'

For the record she told me to 'Go f*ck yourself'.

I cry for the lost art of darning and increasing sock costs i incur.

PS:- My wife also bought me a nose hair shaver last christmas but I have refused to use it and was extremely insulted she bought it. However, I now find myself in the bathroom with tears streaming down my cheek like a professional onion cutter as I try to pluck the ever increasing nose hair using my fingers. Soon I'll have to go and open the shaver box...weep

I darn socks.
You sew the holes up with thin wool instead of cotton.

Bugger, BGB!
If I'd known that I would have shipped a load down to you for repair a few weeks back. I had a purge and disposed of a dozen or so pairs which were no longer structurally intact, and had to go to Debenhams for some new ones.

They don't make socks like they used to.
