Back in my day....

Worst words in the human language. 

On my G plus I came across this with this as an introduction:
Parties are so freaking boring nowadays. Just yesterday I went to a party and it was full of zombies. No one was dancing, no one was having fun. WTF

Predictably starting a bunch of "back in my day" bullshit.  I mean, really?  Progress bitches.  

Lots of assumptions.  First, that this was what the party was like rather than someone saying "I just posted a picture of us on facebook" and everyone going to take a look, or them playing on line together, or recording videos.  It seems that older people are so quick to jump on kids for doing things differently than they did in "back in my day".  Well it isn't your day anymore.  How about you let kids be kids and figure out what they like to do, like you did back in your day.  Remember when you would hear those words from your parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, teachers, etc?  Remember how you thought "wow, cool, we should do that too?"  No?  Me neither.

    Yeah, I agree with you: "back in my day" falls in my Top 10 phrases I'd love to delete together with, "If I were you..."
