Re: Sayings that you hate now
"BECAUSE I SAID SO, THAT'S WHY!"
Anyone who has ever dealt with kids has probably said this at some point, or at least heard it when they were kids. I try very hard not to say it to my nieces and nephew because it's a total BS line.
Along the same lines, my dad always used the line "parents don't need reasons". I hated that more than "because I said so".
