You are my achilles heel

There is a sign in the office canteen that says "Please place all used crockery and cutlery in the dishwasher".

I can't tell you how long it has been since I heard somebody use the word crockery. They are "the dishes" or "the delph".

A "crockery" should be a place where injured footballers go to recover.

I can' even remember the last time I used the word "delph"

"cutlery" always reminds me of my years spent as a waiter, bored off my trolley doing a split-shift and polishing the cutlery at the bar so I didn't have to talk to the chefs.
