Never thought I’d say this


Growing up, my dad was the worst nag ever!

Go turn the basement light off.  Are you watching that TV?  Then turn in off.  Do you need the water running when your brushing your teeth?  Do you need the heat on that high?  Do you need the air on that cold?  We’re not heating/cooling the outside?  Where you born in a barn?  Quite throwing the ball at the house, garage door or in the house.  Do you need that much toothpaste, toilet paper, milk, shampoo………….

18 years of nagging.  I hated it.  SO….

Why am I doing it now?????

    That’s funny Jason and your certainly NOT alone here. My dad was the same way and it drove me NUTS! Now, I say the same things to my boys that my dad used to drive me nuts with.

    I think most of it would be because when I was a kid I didn’t have to pay for anything and now of course I do. Dad WAS right when he said “this $hit ain’t cheap!!”

    we are born to nag. It’s part of the parent job description. Generations after our children will be naggers.

    BAHAHAH! Nagging? I think it’s a natural born instinct in “the dad” to say those things. My husband gets pissy if the fridge is opened too long- LOL! My huz is the nag around here. I can too though at times….

    My husband said to me the other day”How many times do I have to tell you?” LOL boy sparks flew I said don’t ever say that to me I’m not in the third grade. Funny how some things makes us nuts. It’s all in the tone. The one I remember growing up is It’s like Florida in here, when the house is too hot and yes Ive said it.;+). Go play in the highway is one I heard a lot too. Well good job for recognizing it Jason.

    “How many times do you have to be told” is one of my husbands favorites!!

    What about “do you want a spanking?” What kid is going to respond YES to that?

    “Do you think money grows on trees?” “Do you think my name is Rockefeller?”

    “If you wish in one hand and shit in the other, which hand will get full faster?”

    This is cute…and oh so true!!! I’m glad I’m not the one nagging him!!
    This will go on for generations to come. Just a fact of life!

    “Do you own the electric company?”
    “When you get a job to pay for it you can have one.”
    “Boy, if I talked my parents that way…..”
    “You don’t know how good you have it.”
    “We’re not heating/cooling the outside!”
    All these things I hear….and Bailey will say them too, guaranteed!

  10. nikki says:

    LMAO…not really anymore. He went through bad stage, like 17 year old Jason stage. Scary shit!!

  11. Hahahahaha aw, well, if you’re aware of your nagging then you know how to stop it, right? 😛

  12. “Do you have to run the water full force when you do the dishes?”

    “Don’t stand in front of the refrigerator with the door open!”

    “Close the damn door, we’re not paying to cool the outside!”

    “Can’t you aim for the middle of the toilet?” (Dad and two boys–go figure)

    “Are you still in that room? Then turn off the lights!”

    On wishes . . .”If a frog had wings it wouldn’t bump its ass every time it jumped, would it”

    I love the “which one will fill up faster” quote. That’s awesome!

    It’s true we do as our parents do! Good parents are nags 🙂

    I have 3 people in the house including a grown man who will go to the fridge and look…not take anything out and yet go back not 5 minutes later and look again.

    I’ve come up with this and they know when they are gonna get it…

    “did I go to the store in the last 5 minutes…no, I didn’t think so that means it’s the same stuff as last time…pick something or shut the damn door!”

  15. Doraz says:

    This is so funny, yet true!!! I try not to repeat history, but some days it is tough!!!!

  16. darryl says:

    I remember my kids also always opening the fridge, looking in taking nothing and 5 minutes later same thing. Why dont they make a fridge with a glass door? I remember dad always saying things like shut the door turn off the lights. Basically it was be responsible and don’t waste things. I remember mom saying do you think money grows on trees. LOL.
