    Do y'all actually use these phrases? Must make for some interesting conversation. :D I am constantly saying "what the hell" but not sure if that's "old fashioned."

    I actually use lots of these.
    I'm going to have a hard time believing you don't use the 'I'm pretty much down to FU' or something similar from time to time. :p

    Well... yeah. :D But you won't hear me saying "23 skiddoo". (And people with delicate sensibilities should not ride in the car with me driving.)

    Oh! Do you talk to the other drivers too. I try to coach them but the damn fools don't listen.
