Which so-called 'old' things do you refuse to drop from your day to day life? For example:

1) Vocabulary wise, I still say 'taped' instead of 'record' and refuse to say 'movie', as it's obviously a 'film', hence I taped a film that was on the TV the other night.  

2) In the ever evolving world of technology, I still have a PS2 set up seeing as I'm still partial to a bit of GTA Vice City and ProEvo 2.  It's permanently wired up to a box TV (with built in VHS player I should add) in the man cave. 

3) I also have a cheese grater from the 1970's that hasn't been used since last night.

I’m one for saying taped as well.

 

I also say cludgie instead of toilet. I blame my gran for that.

 

I’m one for buying stuff in shops instead of this online malarkey I keep hearing about.

I watch series on TV, not seasons.
That a more a case of you're not American, don't live in America and don't speak American rather than being old.

The weak willpower of the young makes them prone to adopting Americanisms where my old grizzled iron will stands implacably against this scourge.

A friend of mine did this the other day.  Like any proper principled arsehole should do, I got her telt.

I've always been fond of the word 'cludgie' and fastidiously do my part to keep it alive.

Otherwise...

1. Use a fountain pen and write in cursive. Even when typing would be quicker.
2. Wet shave, with a safety razor
3. Read books made of paper - although I have admittedly, recently succumbed and bought myself a Kindle. It's much easier when travelling, which I do a lot.
4. Use the library.
5. Routinely moan about how loud everything is today, particularly television. I'm not sure if it's the same in Britain but it seems the only attribute a woman needs to be on television here is the ability to scream "Ohhhhhhhhhhhh my GAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHDDDDD!!!!!" at the top of her lungs. The men are only marginally better. Guy Fieri, I'm looking in your direction.

I call it a concert instead of a gig.  I went to the Noel Gallagher concert a few weeks ago for example.

I like books, I still have Cassette Tapes, CDs and DVDs too.

I still tie my shoelaces in a double knot, just to be sure.

I prefer the more longwinded approach...

Not enough to fucking clean it though.

Going off on a tangent here after seeing the word cludgie up above, but has anyone here ever heard the saying "That'll be chocolate"? Meaning "aye, that'll be right"?
 
I remember "that'll be chocolate" haven't heard it in ages, mind you i haven't lived in Scotland for ages.
