The more I see people the better I like dogs, and my Dads favorite; no matter big or small, do it right or not at all.

Dad sayings
I am so broke I cant pay attention ( when asked for $ )
I will rip your arm off and beat you with it ( When you really screwed up)
You got what you deserved ( after picking a fight and losing )
You want me to get the shalelie ( cat of 9 tails pick one)
Use your head for more than a hat
If you cant beat them out smart them
When pigs fly ( when asking for something I knew I should not have )
But he was the greatest man on earth to make you stand up for yourself and treat others as you would want to be treated.

Mom Sayings
You cant get blood from a stone
I I tell you to [moderator edit] you better ask how high and how many piles.
Wait till I tell your dad this mess you gotten into.
Always address the Neighbors as MR and MRS __ insert last name
You can wait till the cows come home you still are not getting it.
Children are to be seen and not heard ( when company was over )

I thought I lived in a never ending life of one liners. Then I had kids and understood I Love you MOM and DAD R.I.P.

These are great. Bringing back memories. Apparently growing up neither of parents ever had a pot to p in or a window to throw it out. Which I would also be reminded of whenever I asked for something. Again, closely followed by "come here ya little .....".

And one that I myself borrowed from my grandmother and dad: Can't never could.

For those that don't know the origin: before indoor plumbing folks would pee in a pot in the house to avoid running to the outhouse. Hence the saying so poor that not having a pot to p in. also families would take baths very infrequent. When they did typically the father was first followed by the wife then children oldest to youngest. By time the baby was to be washed the water was muddy and dirty. Hence don't throw out the baby with the bath water.

I think I was told just about all of these plus "If you fall down and break your legs don't come running to me". At times my Dad would drive the old Buick a little faster than the speed limit and say " Gotta blow the stink off". My Mothers favorite" Don't drive faster than your guardian angel can fly".

Wise folks

Dads was "cut, try, and rectify" or "experience comes from bad judgements, good judgement comes from experience."
Moms on the other hand was..."you'll never be the man your mother was" and
"That wasn't that bad, just rub it and be quiet" about some injury. The expression NEVER used by my parents was "I told you..." There was only a sore butt if I continued something I wasn't supposed to. Now I respect others, don't get into trouble, and have a good life thanks to them.
