"Boy, your elevator don't go to the top floor!"

"You've got two brains; one's lost and the other is looking for it!"

"Don't say 'Huh?' Only pigs say 'Huh?' and when you kick em in the ribs they say 'Uh-huh!'"

You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.'

My dad was the easy-going, laid-back type...my mom on the other hand was the one that said:

"Chew with your mouth shut, please!"
"Elbows off the table!"
"Stand up straight."
"Ain't isn't in the dictionary."

Hated it then...miss it now.

momindeep that is too funny, my mom was the tough one, she would also say...

"You make a better door than a window"(if she was watching tv and I stood in the way)

Ask her how to spell something, she'd say "look it up in the dictionary" what??? LOL

Mine too! That's why I couldn't think of many things he used to say. I'm still thinking.

That was a long time ago for me!! [Razz]

One of my favorites that my dad would say is...

"I love you angel" and to this day he calls me angel. Wow, I love him so.

Thanks for saying that, MDW! It reminded me that my Dad called me Sweetie. How precious are both names when they come from your sweet Dad!??

"Low flying ducks." after an "attack".

"Who's up?"
"Me."
"Me who?"

"If you break your little brother's airplane (balsa wood glider from Germany) you boys can kiss your toys goodbye!"

To this day my brother and I sing-song "Kiss your toy goodbye! Kiss your toy goodbye!" (To the tune of "Ring around the Rosie."

When my Dad dropped me off to start college, a tender, innocent and inexperienced 18 year old into the clutches of mid 70's students (yes the 70's, free love and all that) he said, ' dont do drugs and dont get pregnant'. I heeded his advice and enjoyed 3 carefree fun years.

I've got a good one just for the 4th of July. My Daddy would NEVER, and I mean NEVER, let us go and buy any type of fireworks. Not even sparklers.

He would also say, "Those things will put your eye out!"

To this day, I have a hard time being around fireworks. If it weren't for my husband, our daughter would have never gotten to experience the joys of sparklers and roman candles and bottle rockets.

It just goes to show you how powerful your words can be. I love my Daddy!!

That was good advice, Liz!! I followed the advice too but my dad never said that to me. I think it was understood that I wouldn't!!

kids.. Man, I was wanting sparklers this year!! [Cool]

If I ever complained of something, my mom would say "beats a poke in the eye with a sharp stick".

Well, i guess so. Just about everything does. [Big Grin]

Hey Jackie, having had an eye surgery where, indeed, I was given many shots into the eye and also had one of the doctors fishing around for a microscopic stitch, I can definitely relate to "poke in the eye with a sharp stick"! Bwahahahaha!

When sent after a tool or part"Take your time going, but hurry back"

And if he didnt think you were running fast enough to get something."Do I have to pound posts behind you to see if your moving???"

When you heard his special whistle you better be on the dead run!!!

Low and behold the day you didnt find what you were sent for!!! Was like that all day every day

Other words heard all the time"Some peoples kids!!!"

Hmm, well my dad wasn't nearly as nice as any of yours. He attempted to teach me or did the following:
-That I was worthless and my thoughts, opinions and ideas didn't matter
-That I wasn't to speak up to him
-That I wasn't to question him or his beliefs
-That I was to go to church every Sunday, and he subsequently forced me to attend
-Never hugged me, paid attention to me or listened to me unless asked very simple questions, and encouraged me to talk as fast as possible or else I wouldn't be heard at all the few times he even cared to listen
-Neglected me and told me I wasn't good enough (I don't actually remember him telling me anything positive, it may have happened once or twice, but I don't think so)
-Told me sex was dirty and compared it to the toilet multiple times (that much I remember very clearly)
-Treated my nagging mom like she didn't matter at all
-Attempted to convey to me that money and prestige were the most important things in life
-That he didn't have time for me
-That nothing I did mattered unless it benefited our special, precious 'family'

I apologise if I spoiled the fun.

Kx90, I can relate. You're not alone. My dad was great ... mom and step-father, not so much. Just know, only you can break the pattern in the next generation, and I have. It was not your deficiency in character that is reflected in your post, rather your father's. Fix it in you. Don't pass it on.

Be respectful where he was not. Be caring where he was not. And start now, before you have kids.

Just speaking from experience.

A great book that helped me:

Love Is a Choice: The Definitive Book on Letting Go of Unhealthy Relationships by Dr. Robert Hemfelt, Dr. Frank Minirth and Paul Meier M.D.

Everyone has been scarred by things that happened during their growing up years. This book will help you get past it and grow. It changed my life!

Yeah, I should read that book, too.

My mom used to break broomsticks on me when I was little. But I think I deserved it sometimes.

Everyone should! It will tell you to get professional help, etc if you get really angry about stuff they reveal .. but I ignored all that!! You can learn a lot just by reading the book.

They run a counseling service, so they are wanting people to look them up!

It's like choosing to buy your supplements at Amazon instead of at the LLMD's office. LOL!

kx, one of the ways to heal from that is to imagine a father who would be the opposite of all that, and then to have some dialogue with that new one, even writing it down, just to be able to have the experience of a kind parent.
