Words and the *I Bet You Thought It Was Lost* Thankfulness List

We are doing a food drive here at the office with each officer in charge of a certain food items. Everything will go to local food pantries. One of the guys was griping because his people were all *stingy* and did not want to bring in the item he was in charge of. Rose accused him of being old because he used the word *stingy*. She told him that people just do not use that word anymore. She then came to my office and was telling me about it.

That started us off on talking about words people do not really use anymore.

Rose: *Stingy* is not a word used anymore. Neither is *chinchy*.

Me: Or *catty cornered* You do not hear that much either. hhhhhmm.....what other words do you not hear anymore.....
