    My mother always said: "because I said so" and that used to drive me nuts. It was the whole TOTAL authority thing about that phrase that used to drive me crazy. Like she was the dictator of the family. Of course, once I had a child, then I understood it.
    But then again, I've always had trouble with authority. I just hate being told I can't do something.

    I was about 18 the last time my mother used the phrase, "Because I said so!". I remember telling her that that was not going to work anymore, and I stood my ground. Believe it or not, she let me keep all of my teeth! And I never heard that phrase again.

    While my sister and I were growing up, and we would question something she had said, one of her favorite things to say to us was, "Don't Dispute My Word!" in that very stern mother-voice! She's gone, but we still laugh about that one today!

    One of my favorite sayings for my know-it-all son was, "Let me tell you something, everything you do is rerun for me!" He didn't have much to say in return.

    That's such a a funny (and true) thing to say! Yeah, we all think we're so unique but our parents/grandparents have seen/heard it all!

    I love this one!! Can I borrow it and try it on my know-it-all daughter? She's driving me crazy with her incessant "Why?" and/or "Why not?"

    Everybody, feel free to use the "rerun" line on your people. It doesn't leave them with much to come back with!

    That's great, prhoshay!

    My Mom used to say, "I've been your age, you've never been mine", when I wanted to dispute her wisdom. She was smart, because that little phrase of hers always remained true.

    Flooding in midwest

    Mods, feel free to move this, but as I thought two (and probably more) regular posters are from WI and OH that this might be relavent to them.

    Gabriel and Uncle Scott-

    Here's hoping you are not in the flooding zones and are staying dry and safe. You and the kitties.

    Please let us know how things are where you live because we all care and are worried.
