Brakes at 97,000 miles

I was having some pulsating on the front brakes so I decided to replace the pads and rotors today. Here are a couple of shots of my OEM pads with 97,000 on them and new ones. I think there was a LOT of life still in the OEM pad. BTW two weeks ago when I had an oil change done the shop told me my brakes were soo worn out that the car was not safe to drive home. I can't remember but i don't think I was wearing a skirt that day.

Thanks everyone for the comments, just to make sure we are all looking at the same thing. In each picture is one new unused pad and the same pad just removed with 97,000 miles on it. Yes I thoroughly cleaned the calipers and the slide pins were removed, degreased, chucked up in the drill press clean up with emery cloth and steel wool, recleaned lubed and reinstalled. Things are working well now.
