Watch for the postman, I want to get this letter in the mail today.
Quit slamming that screen door!
Be sure to pull the windows down when you leave, it looks like it might shower -- and bring in the clothes on the line, too.
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 bare footed outside all day.
Why can't you remember to roll up your pants legs? Getting them caught in the bicycle chain so many times is tearing them up.
You 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!
Hang up your Sunday School clothes, you know you need to pass them down to your brother in good condition.
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. I need it for baking and Pa's coffee.
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 are going to make it fall if you don't quit!
Let me know when the Fuller Brush man comes by, 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 help push it off.
There is a dollar in my purse, go by the service station and get five gallons of gas when you start to town.
Open the back door and see if we can get a breeze through here, it is
You can walk to the store; it won't hurt you to get some exercise. Maybe you will learn to be more careful with your bicycle.
Don't sit to close to the TV, it is hard on your eyes.
If you pull that stunt again, I am going to wear you out!

Wash under your neck before you come to the table, you have beads of dirt and sweat all under there.
Get out from under that sewing machine, pumping it messes up the thread!
Do you want to go get me a switch?
Be sure and fill the lamps this morning so we don't have to do that tonight in the dark.
Here, take this old magazine to the outhouse (toilet) when you go, we are almost out of paper out there.
Go out to the well and draw a bucket of water for me to wash dishes in.
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 five cents for you to go to the show, do you think money grows on trees?

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 am trying to get your hair cut straight and you keep moving
and it is getting botched up.
Hush your mouth! I don't want to hear words like that. I will wash your mouth out with soap again!
It is time for your system to be cleaned out, I'm going to give you a dose of Castor Oil in the morning.
If you get a spanking in school and I find out about it, you will get
another one when you get home.
Quit crossing your eyes! They will get hung that way!
Soak your foot in this pan of coal oil so that cut won't get infected.
When you take your driving test don't forget your hand signals each turn. Left arm straight out the window for a left turn, and left arm bent up to the sky at the elbow for a right turn and straight down to the side of the door when you are going to stop.
It is "Yes, sir!" and "No, sir" to me and your elders young man, and don't you forget it!
While we are at Aunt Mary's and Uncle John's you kids eat when the adults get through and I don't want to hear "I don't like this stuff". You better keep your mouth shut and eat everything on your plate.
Well, that ought to keep us remembering some of the finer things of the past, some good and some not so good, and young man if I hear you repeat one word of this I will beat the daylights out of you, do you understand that?!
Yep, too bad we can't have some of them back without going to jail.

A man is stumbling through the woods, totally drunk, when he comes upon a preacher baptizing people in the river.
He proceeds to walk into the water and subsequently bumps into the preacher. The preacher turns around and is almost overcome by the smell of alcohol, whereupon he asks the drunk, "Are you ready to find Jesus?"
The drunk answers, "Yes, I am." So the preacher grabs him and dunks him in the water.
He pulls him up and asks the drunk, "Brother have you found Jesus?"
The drunk replies, "No, I haven't found Jesus."
The preacher shocked at the answer, dunks him into the water again for a little longer.
He again pulls him out of the water and asks again, "Have you found Jesus my brother?"
The drunk again answers, "No, I haven't found Jesus."
By this time the preacher is at his wits end and dunks the drunk in the water again -- - but this time holds him down for about 30 seconds and when he begins kicking his arms and legs he pulls him up.
The preacher again asks the drunk, "For the love of God have you found Jesus?"
The drunk wipes his eyes and catches his breath and says to the preacher,
"Are you sure this is where he fell in?"
