Things You Don't Hear Anymore

  • Be sure to refill the ice trays, we're going to have company afterwhile.
  • Watch for the postman, I want to get this letter to Aunt Mary in the mail today.
  • Quit slamming the screen door on your way out.
  • Be sure and pull the windows down when you leave, it looks like a shower coming up.
  • Don't forget to wind the clock before you go to bed.
  • Wash your feet before you go to bed, they are nasty from playing outside all day barefooted.
  • Why can't you remember to roll up your pant legs?  Getting them caught in the bicycle chain so many times is tearing them up.
  • Your have torn the knees out of that pair of pants so many times  there is nothing left to put a patch on.
  • Don't you go outside with your good school clothes on.
  • Go comb your hair.  It looks like the rats have nested in it all night.
  • Be sure and pour the cream off the top of the milk when you open the new bottle.
  • Take that empty bottle to the store with you so you won't have to pay a deposit on another one.  
  • Put a dish towel over the cake so the flies won't get on it.  
  • Quit jumping on the floor.  I have a cake in the oven and you're going to make it fall if you don't quit.  
  • Let me know when the Fuller Brush man comes.  I need to get a few things from him.  
  • You boys stay close by, the car may not start and I will need you to push it off.  
  • There's a dollar in my purse, get 5 gallons of gas when you go to town.
  • Open the back door and see if we can get a breeze through here.  It's getting hot.  
  • You can walk to the store.  It won't hurt you to get some exercise.  
  • Don't sit to close to the TV.  It's hard on your eyes.  
  • If you pull that stunt again I am going to wear you out.
  • Don't loose that button; I'll sew it back afterwhile.
  • Wash under your neck before you come to the table.  
  • Get from under the sewing machine.  Pumping it messes up the thread.
  • Be sure and fill the lamps this morning so we don't have to do it in the dark tonight.
  • Here, take this old magazine to the toilet when you go.  We are almost out of paper out there.
  • Go to the well and draw a bucket of water so I can wash dishes.
  • Don't turn the radio on now, I want the battery to be up when the Grand Ole Opry comes on.
  • No.  I don't have nine cents for you to go to the show.  Do you think  money grows on trees?
  • Eat those vegetables.  They'll make you big and strong like your daddy.
  • That dog is not coming in this house.  I don't care how cold it is out there, dogs just don't come in the house.
  • Sit still.  I'm trying to get your hair cut straight and you keep moving and it's all botched up.
  • Hush your mouth.  I don't want to hear words like that.  I'll wash your mouth out with soap. 
  • It is time for your system to be cleaned out.  I am going to give you a dose of Castor Oil tonight.  
  • If you get a spanking in school and I find out about it, you'll get another one when you t home.
  • Quit crossing your eyes.  They will get stuck that way.
  • Soak your foot in this pan of Coal Oil (or Pine Sol) so that cut won't get infected.
  • When you take your driving test don't forget to signal each turn.  Left arm straight out the window for a left turn; left arm bent up at the elbow for a right turn; and straight down the side of the door when you are going to stop.
  • It is "Yes sir" and "No sir" to me young man, and don't you forget it.
  • While we're at Aunt Mary's and Uncle John's you kids can eat when the adults get through and I don't want to hear any "I don't like this stuff".  Keep your mouth shut and eat everything on your plate.
