NFT: Funny dad clichés?

Route 9 : 11/7/2017 8:24 pm
What are some of those eye rollers your dad always used when you were younger? Or still does? You know the ones he said over and over and over...

For some reason mine always loves to say "hook, line and sinker", "falling upon deaf ears", and loved LOVES saying/using "upper echelon"

My dads first description of a person he likes  
Tuckrule : 11/7/2017 8:31 pm : link
always starts out with “he’s a very refined person”
Somewhat Giant related

My dad channels his inner Harry Doyle with the classic “JUST a bit outside!”
The new progressive commercial is the best...

My dad would always tell us to look out for police cars because his friend Bill got a ticket there... For 15 years... Funny thing, I was telling the story when we were on that road to my wife and daughters, and my wife says "We know, you tell us that story every time we go this way!" I guess it runs in the family!
My Dad would mangle certain words

He could never say Panorama instead he would say "What a stunning Panora".

They named their first boat "Panora"

Watch a ton of games with him and he says this line all the time after the Giants have a 4 yard gain on first down:

"You know what my Daddy used to say, 3 4's is a first down!"

" there's going to be a war around here"

My father grew up on the Lower East Side in the 20's and 30's...  
Milton : 11/7/2017 9:29 pm : link
So he had a ton of interesting expressions...
--When cars would pass us on the road he would either say "He's in a hurry to get killed" or "I'll catch him at the light."
--Every time he sneezed he would follow it up with "You son of a gun."
--If I asked him to drop me off at a friend's house on his way somewhere he might say "I'll drop you off on your head is where I'll drop you."
--If he wanted to warn someone he would say "I'll give you one shot, the floor'll come up and give you another."
--And the bathroom was called the terlet. I'll always remember one time I'm sitting on the toilet and a phone call comes in from the University of Pennsylvania with a question about my application and I hear my father say, "Hold on, he's in the terlet."
I punctured my eardrum with a Q-Tip...

at around age 7. My Dad told me for the next 20 years, "never stick anything smaller than your elbow in your ear."

Whenever I would complain or point-out an obvious problem, my Dad would say, "any idiot can find a problem, it takes a special idiot to offer a suggestion on how to fix it."
My dad is an old school Italian

When he would go to the casinos in CT he would say to me..

Hay, We're going to Mohegan and Son's this weekend, do you want to join us?

I laugh every time.

Some great lines -

When I was a wise ass teenager and would try to BS him, he would get pissed off and say "Don't give me a fucking hand job"

Funny stuff, I would love to see him on the progressive commercial - might not be able to air the commercial during prime time.
My dad had a few good one.

I was lucky that I got to work with my dad for 14 years, here are a few:
To someone dogging it at work "You're slower than a herd of turtles in the mud"
If you saw a large breasted woman "She's healthy", and one of my all-time favorites, while working on a roof at an all girl school:
"There's a truckload of c*nt"
"Your ass is grass...

...and I'm gonna mow it."
my dad would always start off......  
BillKo : 11/8/2017 9:14 am : link
"I'm not going to tell you what to do, but..........."

whenever I had to make a decision...he certainly was giving his opinion on the matter, and emphatically!!!! :)
My dad had some doozies.  
Daniel in MI : 11/8/2017 9:20 am : link
Brooklyn born and raised back when it was tough. Went to college and grad school on scholarships including a PhD from MIT. Followed his brother into the transmission business. Self made by education and hard work. But the NY never left him, and in any argument with bureaucracy he was a dog with a bone. He'd fight insurance companies like it was his job. Lost him in '06, he raised 4 kids as die hard fans. (RIP Dad, miss you.)

If something when really wrong, and he was exasperated, he'd yell, "When fate punches you in the nose, it TWISTS ITS FIST!"

He'd say "Skaty-eight times I told you (not to do that)!"

Football-wise he loved Tuna and liked to quote him from '86 "For the rest of ya life, men, no one can tell ya ya couldn't do it, 'cause ya did it!"

He'd say after a first down pick-up of 3 "Ok, we're on schedule." And the classic defense wins championships.
My dad has always loved

But "Busier than a one legged man in an ass kicking contest" is a great one.

My dad said much of the corny played shit on here --"there's no free lunch anymore" was one of his faves. Another was "he's in a hurry to go nowhere"
