Thread: Do you remember your mother saying.......

  1. #1

    Do you remember your mother saying.......

    How many times when you were growing up did your mother say,

    ...if you aren't careful you will... were you are going or you will...
    ...stop clowning around or you will...
    ...come down from there or you will...

    "break your neck". Back in the day, I don't think we had clue what that really meant. I wonder if our mothers knew what that really meant?

    We were just talking about that the other day. How many times Dave said his mom said he would break his neck. On dirt bikes,the type of work he did,being in a helicoptor crash while in the Army,home roof repairs etc.
    Then to be 45 and fall while picking apples.

    I doubt it, it was more of a saying...though my kids sure listen when I say ' no, you are absolutely NOT ALLOWED to jump from the trampoline into our neighbours pool, you've got to be kidding me, you'll end up like me! if I catch you doing that you will never ever go swimming next door again' lol. I think they got the point, I can't believe the neighbours let kids do that

    When David crashed his four wheeler and broke his back T10, 11 and 12, he had to go home and take a shower first because he didn't take one earlier and couldn't go to the hospital in dirty underwear. LOL fortunately they fused his back together and he healed fine, but now the damn MS has him in a chair.
