Parental Guidance!

#1
I was chatting with a friend today about childhood memories. We were remembering those phrases and sayings that our parents used which actually made no sense at all! Some of them used so frequently they are etched in my brain. Examples.....

"You'll have someone's eye out if you carry on" - Has that ever happened?

"I'll box your ears" - A show of affection maybe.

"There are children starving" - never quite worked out how me eating my cabbage would help.

"I'll bang your heads together in a minute" - A phrase used supposedly to stop me and my siblings arguing, this would clearly work!

The clean underwear in case you get run over by a bus - this would help because???

"Do you want a smack?" - errrm yes please!

We were told when it was bedtime that "the sandman was coming" - not sure that telling kids that a wierdo is going to come and sprinkle sand in their eyes is the best way to get them to sleep!!

And one of my faves - "You don't know you're born" - WTF, HELLO!!!

Hope it wasn't just me and my mate who have parents with a distorted sense of logic!! Anyone else remember any of these or others? :)

" Don't make me come up those stairs" was a favorite of my Mums. Usually after bedtime when we were still larking about.
