As an ever increasingly old teacher/worker person, I now say “back in the day” at a rate that must surely be fantastically irritating to all who hear me say it.
Prepare to be irritated.
Back in the day, public schools in which I was employed had “holiday parties.” This story from the Seattle Times Police Blotter explains why we don’t anymore.
Damn, I miss the old days, the days when one could see party-attending husbands hide behind trees so their wife couldn’t run them over with the family car. Traditions
consist of are dying people!
