Phrases that are out of date with younger co-workers...

I was speaking to a colleague today about another work team that was having a lot of trouble making a client happy. When I mentioned that they were 'running around like the Keystone Kops' she had NO idea what I was talking about.

Now I'm not old enough to remember silent films but I guess I'm showing my age by knowing about the Keystone Kops.

Any other phrases you use that are outdated?

We are getting as rare as hens teeth.

I still think the older generation is the bees knees though better than the new whippersnappers who are knee high to a grasshopper in experience

Actually I have said some things that were not so old to be met with a blank stare.

One of my favorites is "Walking through these doors are the most important people, Our Customers." Not talking on the cell phone and texting while you are working,

I find that "Hello", "Please", and "Thank you" seem to be the most lost phrases on the youth these days and I'm not that old....

It was good to read your letter.
