Don't say that

When I was a kid there were a few stoopid things that I vowed not to say when I "grew up" and recently said one of the dreaded phrases.
  • "Oh my gosh, the last time I saw you, you were so small/tiny" to a tot-sized child. Ugh, I hated hearing that when I was a kid. What the hell is the appropriate reply from a child to a dumb ass adult? "Last time I saw you, you were younger and less fat." Hope to gosh I don't slip and say that again.
  • "There's nothing to see here, move along." Anyone that says that is a douche and a liar. Of course there is something to see. That's why we want to see it because we don't trust you to ever say "hey check it out, there's something to see".
  • "There's no 'I' in team." ```rolling eyes and dropping head towards back```HEY JACK HOLE! THERE IS a M AND a E! AND THAT SPELLS ME!!!! Grab a new phrase.
  • "If you look in the dictionary for ____, you'll see _____'s picture." So very tired, so very lame. Never say it again.
  • "People who curse have no better way to express themselves." True, but there's nothing like the simple shorthand of a succinct "fuck you" which is what you'll hear if I hear any of the above.
Have a nice day now, y'hear?

Too funny, especially your response to the no "i in team" and "nothing to see here" phrases. So true! I'm guilty of pet sayings and probably too old to change, but I'll keep these in mind and steer clear.

How about "do you think money grows on trees" or "if Joe Bob jumped of a cliff would you do it too?"....

Looove your dry sense of humor...yep, no I in team...I hated adults pulling my cheeks and saying how cute when I didn't think they were so cute (kids think too!) :)
