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.

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.

As in yesterday. Ironic usage of an older expression. Making reference to our collective short term memory. The constant churning of events from the present into the bin of discarded Time magazines.

Used in conversation to recall and discuss to a past memory. Back in the day is only to be used for events twenty years or greater in the past.
