Getting older has it's perks. You don't feel the need to 'keep up with...' so much. I mean, I'm just so thankful that social media wasn't around when I was doing really stupid stuff as a teenager. There's a lot of pressure out there for young people these days!

With that being said, slang terms have always been around, and nothing says you're trying too hard to be young and hip like using words that you are probably too old for. You're just going to sound ridiculous, and thanks to our friends at Best Life, here's a handy guide for what not to say if you are over 40. Some of my (least favorite) are below, but be sure to check out the whole list, and the meaning behind the terms. Yikes!
