5 Phrases That Are Becoming Outdated
There are a few phrases we take for granted that will probably not be around very much longer. With the advances in technology our society changes every day, and so do our words and phrases.
Different words have different meanings through out time. Here’s a list from Uncoached.com that probably won’t be along much longer:
“Just buy the new CD” - Because more and more CDs and CD players are being eliminated each day, buying a CD is being replaced with “buy it on iTunes” or “download it.”
“What’s your mailing address?” - Is anyone licking stamps and putting envelopes in the mail anymore? Ever?
“Swipe your card” - We’re still a few years away from this, but this phrase is going to be replaced with “swipe your Phone.”
“Call 911″- It’s going to be replaced with “text 911,” which will honestly sound extremely strange.
“Page me” or “Fax it” - A few industries still love their pagers and faxes, but the end is near.
I think Beepers should be added to the list as well. What else should make it to this list?
