QotD: If I Never Hear That Again…

What is the one saying that your parents said to you that you absolutely hate?
Submitted by victoriassecret.

I can’t think of an actual advice-type saying, but when I was about 13, my sister (who would have been about 10) was growing out her hair and it was always getting in her face. Every time my mother would look at her she would say “Get those bangs out of your eyes – I just can’t stand it!” She always said it in the same exasperated tone of voice, and it got to the point where Kyla and I could recite it word-for-word and in perfect harmony in unison along with her. It soon turned into a bit of a joke, but not until Kyla got lots of headbands and clips.

This post doesn’t really translate well without sound, but I don’t have a microphone. Besides, it’s just not the same without my mum getting really annoyed as she is saying it. Now that the bangs aren’t an issue, I don’t think I could get her to say it with the same passion that she did when our hair fell under her jurisdiction.
