Any words or phrases that bring up memories of your past?
#1
Growing up my Grandmother used "gumption" and whenever I hear it I think of her and wish it was used more today. She also used "in a month of Sundays" and "a coon's age" to mean "a long time".

Some of these are from my grandma, grandpa and adults. Also, so,ef these are from childhood teachers.

'Okey dokey'
Used in the same way as 'OK' to show that you agree to something, or that you want to start talking about something else or doing something else.

'Get it done'
Used when I agree with a staff member's recommendation, or after I direct a staff member to take action.

'Do as I say and not as I do'
Used politely when a staff member goes left when they 'know' they should have gone right.
Side note: Not recommended to use jokingly when speaking to your wife. Exclamation

'I was thinking and yes it hurt'
Used when I have to make a difficult decision that will affect a difficult outcome.

'There are gold nuggets in that post'
Used when someone goes above-n-beyond by sharing or explaining little known tips and tricks.

'Give it up'
Used when the wifey is feeling frisky. Wink

Honestly, in person I am known as someone that uses one-liners and someone that doesn't talk much, but when I do people that know me say - it is golden. Man, are they lonely people or what? Big Grin   Rolleyes

When my friends went to college they came back calling people who complain RAG MONSTERS
and I in fact never stopped calling them that.  It really caught on with me.

A guy in college would always come back from class talking about I'M IN THE SPECULATIVE REALM
Now every time I can't figure something out, out it comes from my mouth.  Saves me a lot of
times because half the time I'm wrong lol.  They don't get a chance to tell me "Shut up Claire
you don't know".  Try it it works. Big Grin Idea
