Completely meaningless phrase which has gained inexplicable global popularity. It's an incomplete thought: Back in what day? It's a redundant way of saying "Once, I..." or "I used to..." and adds words without adding any extra meaning. Similar to the equally pointless "at the end of the day..." popularised by English soccer stars.
Back in the day, I used to be younger.

I was a child once, back in the day.

Dumb way of asking for something in a bar or diner, which gives the impression that you've never actually understood how to ask for anything. If you say: "Can I get a cappuccino?" to a barrista, they're entitled to respond: "You can if you want, but they actually pay me to get things for you and I suspect your job is better paid than mine, so why don't I do the getting and you do the asking..." You can always tell people who understand how to be a customer. They say: "Can I have a cappuccino?"
Can I get a cappuccino?

Can I get acquainted with English?

Drunken male party trick, in which the player imitates an elephant by pulling out his two trouser pockets - the ears - and exposes his penis - the trunk.
In between the vodkas and the vomiting, Charlie was sure the waitress would enjoy seeing his white-eared elephant.

One of those irritatingly meaningless phrases English footballers use too often in TV interviews. It usually sounds like they're trying to claim they were the first to think up whatever predictable crap they're talking about. Only they're not clever enough to think like that...
"As I say, if you score goals you win games"

"It was always going to be hard to beat Liverpool, but, as I say, we won"

Completely meaningless phrase which has gained mysterious global popularity. It means "Once, I..." or "I used to..." but is uglier and lazier. Similar to the equally meaningless "at the end of the day..." popularised by English soccer stars.
Back in the day, I used to be younger.

I was a child once, back in the day.

One of those cute phrases that go from being hip to being hopeless in a very short time. When fat check-out women in Doritos adverts start using it, you know it's about as cool as a set of false teeth. Anyway, what's so great about suggesting that someone was educated in the Charles Dickens era?
"The place I was educated is still standing..."

"Old school, man!"
