Today at work I told someone, it's the same old seven and six, and she said you will have to explain that to me later.  I don't even know what it is my dad used to say it so I do too. She had never heard it.

LOL, well I say it a bit different, I say same old six and seven.  Same difference however.   I can't believe there is any adult that hasn't heard that before.   Now I'm feeling old! hysterical2

I've always thought it means chaos, confusion or indecisiveness


“Sixes and sevens” as we use it today actually has two related but distinct meanings.  When we say “I’m all sixes and sevens” or the like, it means that we are confused, disoriented and uncertain, either in general or in regard to a specific problem.  “Sixes and sevens” also describes a general state of confusion and disarray in something, such as a business, that ought to be orderly (“The affairs of the treasurer … are all at sixes and sevens,” 1809).  But “sixes and sevens” can also mean a state of irreconcilable conflict, usually preceded by “at” (“Bob and Bill were best friends, but the arrival of Mary set them at sixes and sevens for the whole summer”).
