: Could someone help me find the meaning and origin of the saying "Same old, same old"?

This phrase is pregnant with possibilities. I've hear "Same old thing, Same old thing" many a time; usually by my wife to describe my perfectly valid reasons from not completing some task of world importance - fixing the door on the Greenhouse was a recent example.

Never heard 'Same old, same old" unless, of course, it means the same as described above and is simply a smarter was of saying it; that'll be it I reckon.
