Expired Eggs?

I learned from a friend (who has had professional culinary training) that as long as eggs are refrigerated, they will last long beyond their printed expiration date. Since then, I've used expired eggs several times without any issues (and not just a day or two beyond the date either... we're talking a couple months)

Then I saw on a different post, someone commented that old eggs are easier to peel when boiled, but not to use eggs that were expired.

What do you all think, are expired eggs okay to use as long as they aren't obviously bad?
