"Can You Roll up Your Window?" 5 Sayings from the past We All Still Use Today

As the immortal Buggles sang in 1979, video killed the radio star. As time progresses, many sayings we are used to spewing suddenly become obsolete and we're left being asked the question "... What is that thing used for the 'save' icon?"

Here are a couple outdated expressions I still find myself saying, despite the fact that they virtually make no logical sense in this day and age.

1. "Can You Roll Up/Down Your Window?"

Whether I'm in a 2001 Honda Civic or the Enterprise, I will always utter the above phrase when there is too much of a breeze or not enough. Granted, I wouldn't recommend opening any windows on a Starship...

2. "Hold Your Horses!"

I love this saying. It applies to so many everyday occurrences like if someone is driving too fast or someone is speaking some bullshit.

3. "You Sound Like A Broken Record"

Either fix yourself or I'll trade you in for a not broken version.

4. "So And So Has Been Caught On Tape!

No they haven't. Nobody has been "caught on tape" since 1998.

5. "Can You Video Me For A Second?"

Now this may actually only pertain to me, but when I click on the video camera button on my phone and want someone to film me, I almost always say "can you video me?"
