Re: Sayings that you hate now
As a kid: "Wait till you get home" Well, hells, if I'm getting a punishment anyway bide as well make it worth the effort.
As an adult: YOLO (You Only Live Once) - Usually said right before someone does something stupid or dangerous or both.

or hated as a child
For me it was "Eat all you rvegetables because there are children starving in .......... (whatever country can currently be inserted, when I was a child it was Biafra). How can I eating more than I wanted to help them? I never used this argument with my children.
That one always made me think: Then shouldn't I eat less so they can have some of my food?
I think most children think that, I know I certainly did.
