What expression/line/question do you seem to say the most?

Mine seems to be: "Why do I have to do everything in this house?"

"Oy vey!" It's such a perfect expression for so many occasions.

"Holy crappioletti!"

I'm sure it doesn't mean anything in Italian. . .or any other non-English language. :)

"Crap!"

"I want to go out."

"I'm..." -- oh, I can't post this here. It's a family board.

To my kids: "Get your bottom on the chair, please" (they LOVE to sit half on and half off)

To everyone else: "To be perfectly honest..."

"Pardon me?"/"Could you repeat that?"/ "Say that again?"/"What?"

I'm a bit deaf. Quite a bit, in fact.

Lucky Penny
05-17-2005, 07:57 PM
To my kids, "Have you lost your mind?"

In general, "CRAP!" (But I need to stop that, my 2 year old likes that word now too)

That's an interesting one, William.

I also say (to the kids when I'm trying to write):

"Don't bother me unless the house is on fire."

That's got to stop.

brokenfingers

I suppose it depends on where I'm at.

At work I often say: "And I should care... why???"

When I'm out I often say: "How YOU doin'?"

*Why do I have to do everything!*

*If I don't do it - it doesn't get done!*

Oh Renee, good call--I forgot about that one. "If I don't do it, it doesn't get done."

Well, lately it's been "F*ck off, Dan!".

Something else I say a lot is, "Yer outta' yer fricken' skull!" and "I'm tired of this sh*t!"

WVWriterGirl

My favorite is, "Y'know what I'm sayin?" It seems I end every sentence I say with that. It annoys people. A lot.

My favorite frustrated phrase is "Well, f**k a duck". I try to avoid using it, but it comes out almost without me knowing it. It's like I can feel it coming out, but I'm helpless to stop it.

And, the old cliche, "If momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy." I remind my 3 year old of this fact on a daily basis.

WVWG

Celeste
05-18-2005, 12:36 AM
Lol...I'm bad at saying "Y'know what I'm sayin'?" too!

Another I say a lot is, "I'm gonna' run away!"

I use the "f" word a lot at work.

When I was a rookie, my captain once used the "f" word 35 times in one sentence. I counted.

That's about the only word/phrase I use on a regular basis that I can think of.

Makes me wonder if we used to know each other. Me & the buds used to say this all the time.

Now it's: 'And your point is...?'

Any number of variations of "stop barking and get in here!" These dogs of mine drive me nuts.

And I find I'm becoming my mother. When my 7 yr old asks where his shoes are I usually say "Don't know. I didn't wear them recently."

I also like to torture my 7 yr old by asking him if he's joined the dark side yet. He gets all mad and I say, "But we have cookies..."

"Life isn't fair", I started saying this to my kids, now I find myself saying it alot, sometimes to myself.

Another one I use often, "What color is the sky in your world?" "her world" if I'm talking about someone. My daughter got me started saying that one.

Omigod! It's universal! :)

I also say 'Holy crap'! 'What do you mean by that'? or 'What are you saying'?

My son says 'sup' a lot so I counter with 'snoo' or 'sappenin' or, when he leaves the house, 'slong'. That one usually cracks up his friends 'tho. Can't imagine why.

Renee
05-18-2005, 04:33 AM
There's also..........*uck me running* but saying that one gets far more attention than it's worthy of..so I try to contain myself when I get angry because typically that's my response to a messed up situation.

This one drives my wife bonkers: "Sucks to be you."

Strange, I'd always thought I picked it up from a friend of mine in college, until we were talking about it one day (years after), and he corrected me, and let me know that I'd in fact started it first...

And then when my wife says: "You're nuts..."
I respond with: "What about 'em?"

Celeste

my fav when I am tired and don't want to be doing something--

Are we having fun yet? And: Not a happy camper.

Funny how many of the saying on here I use--the f a duck one I used all the time in HS--haven't even thought about it for years. Oh and rat's a**

When I'm driving and some idiot doesn't use his blinker it's "Nice blinker, butthead!"

To my kids, "No, lazybones! Do it yourself."

As a method of "self protection," I put on a whole lot of southernisims up here in Yankville. They are always brought on by "friends" lighting my fire. Seems they enjoy that.

F*ck will always be my favorite word.

Well, sh*t fer tomorrow."

"Bite me already."

"Christ on a throne" (picked that up from a Boston friend)

"You're killin' me! Killin' me." Picked that one up in New York too.

And to my college students that want to know why they have to turn in works cited pages, staple thier papers, print in black ink, adhere to deadlines, and yada yada yada--"Because I am the prof. I am past this class, you aren't."

And when they try to be sly and not talk during discussions--"I get paid to be here whether ya'll participate or not. Talk or be damned for the next hour and a half."

For the record--I am not known as a brutal prof, by any means. The kiddos tend to get over the fright after the first month when they realize that I'm damned laid back. :)

Lucky Penny

Any number of variations of "stop barking and get in here!"

hmmmmm.....for me it goes something like this "stop barking and get up" My kids are driving me nuts, pretending to be dogs! I already have 4 dogs, I really don't need two human dogs!

"Don't even think about it!" That's another favorite around my house.

mdmkay
05-18-2005, 08:52 AM
Favorite quips are.........get a grip....you've got to be kidding.....do I look stupid?.Don't answer that....my fav's are cuss words, in fact the kids scatter when mom comes in the door say sh#t on a f#cking duck, it's going to be one those days... Oh and I forgot my kids favorite of my sayings DON'T YOU EVEN THINK IT....or...Young man don't think you're the first one to think up that stunt, not only did we do it we did it alot better...without getting caught

05-18-2005, 11:34 AM
"I love you."











I'm a sweetheart, really. (Honest. Why don't you believe me?)

Another one: "where's the maple syrup?"

Hell, I live in a non-English speaking country. I walk down the street and say WHATEVER I FEEL LIKE. I can comment on that man's height, that woman's bum, the booger hanging out of that kids nose. Why not? I know they do it me. I vividly remember a couple of women speculating as to the size of my member when I was out shopping one day. They seemed to be telling their friends quite knowledgably that Western men are better than the locals in the sack.

astonwest
05-18-2005, 03:07 PM
"Because I can!"
That reminded me of another one I tend to use when asked "why (did you do that)?"

"For the same reason a dog licks its own b***s..."

It occurs to me, after spending the entire morning trying to write, and only completing two pages thanks to the constant interruptions, that another phrase I use a lot is:

And I also have a bad habit of yelling out "DO MAH BUNS!" when I'm hyper.

Yeah, yeah... I know.

I had a friend whose mother was my mother's friend. When they would come over, my friend and I would get a notebook and keep track of how many times her mother would say, "ya know?" She'd say, "I'm not going to say it again...ya know?" By the 25th "ya know," we would be rolling on the floor.
Because I live alone, I talk to the TV a lot...I love to yell at the celebrities...
"NOBODY GIVES A F**K!!!"

rhymegirl
05-20-2005, 04:20 AM
I like that story, Cassie!

That reminds me of something that's happened in my house. My husband always asks my son if he can go on his video game system in his room. (Reason for asking: in case my son wants to go on there) He asks so often, it gets very predictable.

One day, before my husband came home from work, I said to my son, "I bet you that when dad comes home this is exactly what he'll do. First, he'll go change his clothes. Next, he'll go find something to eat. Then, he'll come in this room and say, "Can I go on your game system?"

Sure enough, that's exactly what he did! In that order. My son and I looked at each other when he asked that question and laughed our heads off.

I rarely watch television, because I think about 80% of the shows that are on are just stupid. Of the other 20%, only a few interest me.

Just for fun, I like to hit the mute button on my remote, and make up new dialogue for the characters on tv. You wouldn't beleive some of the conversations we've had Monica and Phoebe have when Rachel left the room.

Nothing nice.

Let's see - "If you two don't stop fighting, you're both grounded!" (to my daughters).


"Katie! Stop that!" (to my German Shepherd who licks herself all night long if you let her .....creating grotesque noises.


"Karluk! Go to bed!" (to my Great Pyranees who likes to stand in front of the sliding glass door in my bedroom - to see if he can see raccoons outside and start barking, thus waking the whole house up).

"Hi Tiger!" (In a funny voice, to my favorite kitty - Tiger).

"Hi guys!" (to my rats, who have a cage in my office.)

"Do you know where the trash is?" (To my daughter Nina who likes to throw wrappers on the floor for the magic fairy to pick up - AKA ME.)

"Get your swimsuit on!" To my daughter Nina who is on the swim team 3 times a week and drags her feet every single time .....but won't leave when its over.

And the mundane list goes on and on and on and ...........you get the picture?

Hey, its a fascinating life, but someone has to lead it.

I really must stop saying:

'Arrgh! Don't do that! You'll go blind' when people say they're going to buy one of my books.

This is probably not a good idea.

In future I shall say:

'Good idea. And how about buying one for your Granny's Christmas present?'

We say "Mom, Dad, Bud, and Sis" when we mean the entire family. The configuration works for us, but we say it when we mean any entire family.

In the effort not to use words we didn't want to hear from the mouths of our sweet young children, I called people who do stupid and/or inconsiderate things "blowfish"--until that Hootie guy totally ruined it for me. They then became "dinkdorfers." Both words are still used for the stupid or rude, along with the words they once replaced, around our house.

As you might guess, dinkdorfers generally display dumbassitude.
