Words and sayings I dont hear anymore
« on: January 09, 2008, 09:38:57 PM »

Hi All

Being born in England of English parents but emigrating at the age of 8 to Australia there are some sayings I used to hear a lot of but don't anymore. Do you have any sayings that you don't hear anymore????????

Heres some of mine.

Pull the chain
Spend a penny
Penny for the guy
Bob a job

I will add to the list when I think of some more, How about your list???

On the minus side:-

"Darling I love you "
"That was wonderful"

On the plus side:-

"Get your ******** hair cut"
" and ### will support you, its all timed perfectly"

Sadly, in everyday life, "please" and "thank you" are becoming rarer.

This year it was 'Merry Christmas'   :(

I wok in pubs and clubs, and this year it was very low key.

I miss some of the wonderfully daft things my Mum used to say to me when I was a kiddie:

"Stop crying or I'll give you something to cry about" (Mum - Too late! I've already found it)

"I'll have you laughing on the other side of your face" (Whaaaaaaaaat??)

"And what time do you call this?" (Hadn't though about that, Mum - let's call it "Fred", OK?)

"What do you THINK you're doing, young man?" (Well, Mum - I THOUGHT I was eating a worm but if I'm wrong, hey - I'll throw my hands up to it).

" I suppose you've done that JUST to stay away from school!" (No, Mum - I'm an A&E junkie with a stomach-pump fetish)

Miss her. She wanted to appear so straight and sensible but she was a sucker for a f^rt gag!

What about "I'll bang your heads together" or "You could put an eye out with that" or the best one "I'll give you a good talking to"

"Just you wait till your father comes home"  and when he did it was usualy  less of a talking to than I`d already had from my mother but he always ended with "next time I`ll take my belt to you".  He never did but the threat worked.

Some of Dads sayings... " If you keep eating, your eyes will be bigger than your belly"! (never really understood it) and his other favourite when I repeatedly stayed up late "you're burning the candle at both ends matey"! Another was.. "If you don't stop, I'll give you 'what for' in a minute"! He never did give us 'what for' at any time but somehow we just knew what he meant. :)

"I'll clip round the ear." ( from a copper.... then you would get another one from your Dad when you got home!)

"Shindig" ( party )

"Fill her up" (Car)

Child - "I'm bored or There's nothing to do!" (Then sent to their room with TV, DVD, PC, video game and Internet!)

"Footrballers are worth every penny!"

"That's a bargin / value for money!" 

And ..... "I respect your point of view or religion or beliefs."

Another one of Dads.... " He was like a dog in a manger"! I think it means being unable to chose when confronted by a choice of more than one thing. In my young mind, it conjoured up visions of a dog standing in a straw filled wooden pen but for the life of me I never understood it..... nor did I ever ask.

These related to how well we kids had washed ourselves after a day out playing anywhere and everywhere.... (the good old days in fact!)  O0

'you could grow potatoes in those ears....!' (surely an over-exaggeration here??)  ::)

and a regular..... 'looks like the tide has left a mark on your neck...!'  {-)

I think Please and Thank You are the ones I hear least, when I use them in a shop the people look at me as if I am insulting them.
FLJ if I did not know better I would say my mum must have had a sister, my mum used to say all of those to me.

Like arrow "wait until your father gets home" why does he know an easier way to get the cane from the head?
"Eat your Christmas Pudding if your find a sixpence it will be lucky" so choking on a coin is lucky?
"Stand still so I can hit you properly" it felt proper to me
"You do not know you have been born" that one lost me completely
"Eat all your greens you will grow big and strong" they just call it overweight now


The one that used to really throw me if I had wound my mum up " I wish I had never had you" strange because she didn't I was adopted!

All these sayings have brought back a horrible memory of when we were kids out with grandma and we had dirt on or faces. You guessed it, out came the old hanky and she would spit on it and then wipe our faces. Yuck, that would be called "Child abuse" today.

Hey bigfella, you must be creakin' on a bit.... like me. When I was a kid, the war was over but Mum and my Gran would still refer to the shopping as "going to get the rations". And your'e right, that wet hanky WAS a form of chid abuse! ;D

My Dad's favorite sayings are:
"Six of one, half a dozen of the other." ( Same thing in the end )
"Swap black dog for monkey!" ( Never was quite sure what this really meant, changing something bad for something even worse..... I think! )
