You are officially old if you are still on Facebook or buy undies from M&S, according to research.
And ordering a cappuccino was named the number sign that you are uncool, voted for by 52% of today’s youngsters.
Becoming obsessed with bin day or cranking the music down when parking a car are also signs of becoming “ancient”, the research among Gen Z kids found.
And nearly a quarter of under 30s quizzed mentioned groaning when you sit down while 13% said using hash tags incorrectly were indicators you are over the hill.

Ellie Glason, from research firm Perspectus Global who commissioned the survey, said: “Our latest research suggests that the cappuccino could soon be a thing of the past, along with Facebook, M&S underwear and asking for milk and two sugars in your tea.
“The survey also suggests Gen Zs reckon anyone over the age of 42 should not go clubbing.
“But with night life set to reopen this summer, we say you are never too old to hit the dance floor”.
The study of 2,000 millennials also found no-one over the age of 51 should be wearing jeans while wannabe skateboarders should retire their wheels at the age of 38.
Youths quizzed also declared anyone over the age of 41 should not be seen on a scooter.
And 54% said there was something a bit sad and cringeworthy about older Brits trying to be “down with the kids”.
Other giveaways mentioned were insisting on wearing comfy shoes, being unable to recognise Love Island stars and having a DVD collection.
It comes after a survey earlier this month found that the traditional thumbs up was voted the most uncool emoji by young Brits, closely followed by sending a red heart, an OK hand or a crying face.
The check mark was another symbol to be avoided.
According to the data, the average Brit sends a staggering 76 emojis every week.
