hear the end of this

I am adding the following expressions to the “let’s not use these expressions anymore” list: ‘back in the day’, ‘sale-a-bration’, and ‘spook-tacular’.  And this one’s not used much, which is good, but in the rare instances that it is used, it shouldn’t be used: ’24/7/365′.  Meaning round-the-clock, year round.  The thing that kind of bugs me about it is that ’24/7′ can actually be used to calculate all of the hours in a week, but we can’t do that when you add in the 365.  Or you could, but it would result in 365 weeks, or maybe 7 years.  It’s easier to just say ‘we never close’.
