Note: I initially made this reply in another thread about cliches and decided it might be better with a different topic. I was at the pool the other day and I saw this happening, so I walked over to the guard (20 something) and asked if (kids) sitting on the lane dividers was frowned upon? Does this question make sense to our young members? Would anyone say this is old person talk? The guard asked me what did I mean? I had to follow up with is it bad to sit on the lane dividers? He understood that and said yes. This is somewhat beside the point of this particular post, but I also asked him what is the YMCA policy for kids playing in lap lanes, during times designated for swimming laps, when people were waiting to swim laps? He told me he had no clue... Hmm. I mentioned it before (another time, another thread), but was at McDonald's today ordering a lunch and after everything I said, the response was no problem. That's really bothering me these days, because IMO as a rule, no problem should be reserved for instances when you are inconvienencing an employee or asking for something unusual, not on the menu. It should be assumed there is no problem ordering what's on the menu, or the voice in the box being able to produce what you order. Better replies would be yes, got it, absolutely, my pleasure, or say nothing unless there is an issue understanding the order. Good to know, just verifying. I do know that other phrases have popped up during my life, with a first time hearing them. Such as my bad (my fault) and sick as in that's sick, which really means that's cool or great... I think.
