    Lies our parents told us (for our own safety)

    I was thinking about this today and it just made me laugh thinking about the things my parents told me to keep me from doing something they didn't want me to do.

    I'll start off with my favorite one:

    - don't stick your hand in the washing machine when it's running or it will suck you in

    How about "babies are bought at a baby store" and when I asked if we could return my brother, "there's a no refunds rule."
    and "eat your vegetables or they'll eat you first."

    How about "there are starving kids in China that would kill to get what you left on your plate!"

    Your face will freeze that way...

    My grandmother actually told me that if I pressed the gas pedal in her car it would blow up. That scared me to death. I never noticed her pumping the gas before she started it.

    John......my brothers heard more about hairy palms

    My parents said cigerettes would stunt my growth.
    Worse thing is I was so tall and skinny and wanted to stop growing!! So, I smoked more!!
    Til this day I won't put my hand in the garbage disposal cuz my Mother used to say it would get chewed off!
    Finally, my Father used to say if you told more than 2 lies it was a mortal sin and I'd go straight to hell........this is from a man who.
    well....I won't go there. Never left me though@!
    I'm careful what I say to my daughter.
    Definately learn from our parent's "mistakes"
    :nono
    So, where's the Cannes Film Festival being held this year?

    And of course there's always:

    -don't swallow your gum it will stay there for 35 years
    -don't swallow watermelon seeds because they will grow in your tummy

    My parents told me that if I do not finish my food, the remaining food would be symbolic of the amount of pimples that would grow on my future husband's face.
