When I was a kid my mother would say to me "If you don't eat what I give you , you can go without"

Now she's a granny she says to her grandchildren "Of course  I'll cut the crusts off my darling"

What's that all about  >410<

>104< Jean!

Mr Loopy's mum used to tell him that, if he was naughty, he'd turn into one of the horrible scary 'gargoyle' doorknockers that some people had years ago!   :o

He's never been the same since!!

If I'd been irritating my mum and then asked for money for the cinema she would say
 "I'll cinema you!"
I never hung around to find out what that consisted of.

I remember a really funny stand up routine by the irish guy who went on to present Catchphrase
"Funny things happen to your parents when they get angry.
My dad used to lose his memory. He'd say

'Who do you think you are???'

Or even worse

'Who do you think I am???'

My mum would become a ventriliquist. She'd say

'Getinhere!' "

(Imagine him saying that through his clenched teeth)

My mum had a certain "look" she would give us if she was not best pleased. That look said it all!  >103<

I can imagine that look!

My parents also often used to say
You're neither use nor ornament.
And
Are you deaf, daft or what?
(I used to say "I'm what" and run off.)

Oh and their favourite
We'll give you a map with Lincoln crossed off
(Thats where we lived)
