What are some other things that you can think of that are dying a slow death with every passing generation?
Casual racism? (I kid, I kid)
I never see anyone leaving out fancy glass candy dishes full of ribbon candy, Werther's Originals, and after-dinner mints on their coffee tables for the grandkids to raid any more, which gives me a sad. That's like Grandma-ing 101.
With my grandma it has always been Hershey's Kisses, though in recent years she has taken to doing those little bite-size Dove bars.
I will say that, while I find the casual racism kind of funny sometimes, it's probably okay that it's a dying trend. Though how often to do you get to hear somebody say the word "Negro" in regular conversation?
