I've used "natch" numerous times on this board over the years; you must have missed it.

Oh, and we have discussed ths important topic elsewhere:

I see the last post was two years ago, and the whole topic was derailed like a runaway train. The "These phrases need to come back" topic needed to come back.

Something from the aforementioned phrase thread I completely forgot about:

"Old Sport.

I don't want the mainstream to pick this up. I want it to be the exclusive domain of film score fanatics. We can call each other old sport in our always-civilized interactions on this board and our infrequent get togethers. However, "old sport" will be used mockingly and derisively when said to non-film score buffs but even then only in the presence of other film score aficionados."

I think the best we'll get is "Pardon my French."

"Old Sport.

Some examples on proper delivery for the desired effect:

Humphrey Bogart: "That's right....old shport." Always mocking.
Nigel Bruce: "Indubitably, old sport." Always sincere.
George Sanders: "I say, old sport." Always ironic; keeps them guessing.

My sentiments, exactly. I find the current and ubiquitous "No Problem" to be a poor substitute, one which implies that there was actually a problem, that the person in question merely fulfilled an obligation, and that he/she really didn't give a shit about doing any small favors in the first place. Simple manners and grace seem to have fallen by the wayside.

"No problem" still seems positive, and could be an abbreviation for "any time, it was a pleasure" but with some of the emotion drained from it.

I'll tell you what indicates a lack of awareness and hypocrisy are "No worries!" and "I'll be mindful of that." Never ever trust anyone who uses those phrases.

"What a revoltin' development!"

However, this phrase only works if spoken using a Jimmy Durante voice (look him up, Millennials). I would love it if even college-age girls said it in such a voice.

"You'd better mind me!"

Words often spoken by Grandma Phelps, circa 1979, when young me was out of line or otherwise rambunctious.

So I'll spit in his eye (said in many 1950s movies).
