I'm with you mate. I can only say we probably said an say things our parents thought the same,
Classic example my daughter , lived in OZ for 23 years now and on the deli counter sham asks can I get some cheese , prawns etc , not can I have.
VERY ANNOYING.

Not only you. I get a bit pee’ed off with these unnecessary revisions of the English language. New words for new concepts I’m fine with but not unnecessary changes.

My latest pet-hate in the world of business jargon is "let's unpack this", in place of "let's look in to this in a bit more detail".

Ugh.

Precisely, like beginning replies with "so", instead of "well". That's crept in over the last few years as well and I even hear adults saying it.

"I hear what your saying". Does this translate to. "I don't care about your opinion".

No Prob. instead of yes that will be alright.

But remember Shakespear had similar complaints with the many new phrases he introduced, the English language is forever developing.

I’m sure we all sound like fuddy duddies (eh!) but the English language has always changed/evolved and is able to take in  new words and expressions. It will continue to do so

"Awesome". I've told people a hundred million times not to exaggerate by just using this word!

If I had a pair that would certainly get on them.

Where did 'can I get' when ordering something come from? All our (grown up) kids use it.

and when I go to the bar...... are you all right? yes thank you, just wondering if there was anyone who will serve me a drink!  You could have said can I help you or what would you like but no ..are you all right, where did that come from?
