    Think the spelling is bad now?..wait 10 years and see how bad it's going to be.
    Texting..shortening of words/phrases, essentially creating a new language.
    By the way, what does MEH mean?

  12. When I was growing up I was taught that when someone thanked you for some thing or some deed the proper response was "You're welcome". Not "No Problem". Where in the hell did that come from?

    Wow. Six pages of old guys (or maybe young guys with “old guy attitudes”) bitching about how people talk.

    Catch phrases are a matter of translation.

    Perfect for restoration = looks like it went thru a crusher
    Mechanically good =body is swiss cheese
    Restoration is 95% complete = be prepared to start from scratch
    Usable = for a boat anchor
    Immaculate....apart from = list as long as your arm
    Don't want to sell, I'm going to restore it = surviving relatives sell it for scrap metal after the funeral
    Recent respray to freshen up = will need complete paint job
    Fully restored in the 90s = needs complete restoration
    I know what it's worth, I watch the TV auctions = surviving relatives sell it for scrap metal after the funeral

    That's no kidding, 31 V.
    And we bitch about it because most of us here have a great respect for the past and the way things have been done for years and years. And then these clever morons come along with bright new better ideas that seem to indicate a lack of respect for the past.

    There's a reason things have been done the same for a long time. Mainly because people have tried different ways and eventually found what works.

    The fork goes on the left...
    Not in the glass... moron.

    My wife and I used to laugh about to newest catch phrases and overused buzzwords.
    Back then, it was stuff such as...
    "Crisp tender "

    Lately I've heard...
    "Woke" aware of the bullshit
    "Hangry" angry because you're hungry

    Moan. Please just shut up. LOL

    One thing I notice a lot of these days is up-talk. It's mostly women that use it but men are catching on to this trend also. I don't know, it just makes you sound less credible or unsure of yourself when I hear it, especially in a newscast or speech.
