Often Repeated Sayings of Our Parents




I wonder how many of us heard these things, repeatedly, when they were growing up:

  1. Close that door. Are you trying to heat the whole outdoors?
  2. Stop leaving the lights on. The electric bill was almost $25 last month!
  3. You don't realize how spoiled you are. When I was your age...
  4. Eat your food. People are starving in Europe. (1950s)
  5. We are going downhill, just like the Roman Empire.
  6. Stop hitting your brother.
  7. I think a tornado went through your room.
  8. Go outside and play, blow the stink off.
  9. Who put the lettuce behind the curtain? I found it cleaning up. Greg?
