I have been a dad for over 7 years and continue to be horrified that I find myself saying some of the same things my parents said to me though I swore I never would. I am not talking bad or hurtful things but the stupid little saying parents have. I think these things must be passed down in the DNA. Maybe your parent's said some of the same things. Maybe all parents say them. Maybe you say some of these things though you swore you would never. Things like...
...You want to cry and whine, I'll give you something to cry and whine about.
...I brought you into this world and I can take you out.
...If you brother told you to jump off the Bourne Bridge would you do that too!
...Don't make me stop this car.
...You better stop while you are ahead.
I guess that saying is true: the more things change the more they stay the same. I wonder if there are other sayings I am missing because I can't think of them right now.
