“That’s a nice box. We should keep it.”
Reddit user naxxfish recently asked, “Millennials: What was the most middle-aged thing you caught yourself saying recently?” and I feel personally attacked because I’ve said at least 90% of these things.
Here are some of the top-voted and best responses:
“I can’t go out for dinner. I have chicken in the fridge that I have to cook before it goes bad.”
“They just don’t make them like they used to — with them being stuff like wood dressers.”
“Oh, no thank you. I can’t have caffeine this late in the day, or I’ll never get to sleep tonight.”
“I had a riveting conversation with some friends about the best office chairs for lumbar support.”
“In a conversation with a friend, I was telling them how I managed to find a really good knife block recently.”
“While at Home Depot, I said, ‘Oh yeah, that’s some good lumber.'”
“That’s a nice box; keep it.”
“I can’t fix one thing in my house without at least 15 minutes of complaining about the previous owners’ handiwork.”
“Oh babe, check out these New Balances.”
“I’ve got to go home and feed my starter.”
“Where’s the good stapler?”
