And My Dad Would Say....

Something a little different for the blog...

As our three daughters were growing up, I commonly used some cliche-type phrases. Some were intended as lessons for life, while others were just cute sayings.  Our youngest referred to these statements as "Bruce-isms".

One day our youngest daughter observed "I realized the other day that I say "My dad would say....", at least once a day. So I decided to make a list of the things I quote my dad on. They say a lot about how I was brought up! (and I think I turned out ok)" And so does your dad. 😉

  1. "Stay single and bring your kids up the same way."

  2. "You have one person you should be trying to impress... that's yourself." 

  3. "If you can't live off it for the rest of your life, it ain't worth stealing."

  4. You have two choices... You can like me or not. And I really don't care which one you pick!

  5.  "At the end of the day, there's only one person that needs to be happy with who you are as a person…. That's you!" 

  6. "Don't waste a single attention-unit hating someone else, because that's one attention-unit taken away from you being the best person you can be."

  7. "With a wife, three daughters, three female rabbits, and a female dog; why would I want another woman in my life."

  8. "RTFM!!" (Read the f'n manual!)

  9. "It took me this long to train the one (wife) I have, why would I want to start all over again??"

  10. "Been there, done that, don't need a t-shirt"

  11. "I put enough holes in my body by accident, why do it on purpose?" (re: body piercings)

  12. "All people are born right-handed and only the best of us can overcome it."

  13. "If you don't go to hell when you die, you didn't have enough fun while you were alive."

  14. "I may get older, but I will never grow up."

  15. "If you aren't a liberal when you are young you have no heart, and if you aren't conservative when you get older, you have no brain."

  16. "Pound sand."

  17. "Like it or lump it." 

  18. "Of course your opinion matters. Just not to me. 

  19. "There are three kinds of people in this world. Rozett's, people that wish they were Rozett's, and people lucky enough to marry a Rozett.
