"and so" & "once again" those cliches and obsolete metaphors

so travelling to Nice last 2 days I notice CS people start all talks and interrupts with "and so" and all airline staff start all announcements with "once again"
and I notice many obsolete metaphors (pictures of old cameras with bellows for godsakes to n=indicate surveillance - pictures of phones or the word "dial", and talk about records and "spining" - kids will be very confused

so was I as I read Alex James auto-bio - "A bit of a blur" back to back with alastair campbell's "the blair year" diaries - it was fairly hard to see who had the bigger ego or was more out of touch with reality...
