    My Pops is responsible for my fixation on jokes. Dad told me so many inappropriate jokes when I was a boy. I could write a five volume book with the jokes I've learned since then.

    Here's something my mom use to say when I was a kid whenever my Dad was leaving the house when he was off work. "Go with him so he'll come back........." LOL!

    My mother would say this even in front of other people. "With you kids all I do all day is say Stop, quit, behave until I'm ready to pass out!"

    My father use to say this "Oh you say that now, wait until you get to be my age!".

    Did anybody post the infamous "Keep crying and I'll give you something to cry about"? For some reason, that line worked remarkably well with me.

    The other end of that was "When I was your age, I ( fill in any preposterous tale )"!

    You guys had compassionate folks. We just got hit with whatever was in reach. Like Eddie Murphy said, "...throw a shoe like Clint Eastwood (he made that familiar whistle)... ok let's go"! (to his father)

    Exactly! They knew what to say to get you to do what they wanted! Oh so you think those dishes will wash themselves? I guess those cans are going to walk themselves to the curb huh? LOL!

    Although my Mother knew how to whip us and make it count, she also used my father as a weapon. She would threaten us with,"ok y'all are showing out while I am trying to watch my "Stories" (aka Soap Operas), I'm telling your Dad when gets off work and then you'll be sorry........ LOL!

  23. #123
    Whenever my parents asked us to do something that we did not want to do, we were prohibited from saying "shoot!", "dang!" or the rolling of eyes...........LOL!

    Ain't that the TRUTH!

    You could not call anyone stupid or dumb. Boy! This generation's language made ours seem quaint, prissy. Remember the word sissy? If you liked to read, cook or bake. Even if you didn't always want to go outside to play, that label stuck. The horror!

  27. #127
    Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa...i'm on the floor,nativeny63 you got that right,cooking and baking????..reading[well maybe a comic book]hehe,guys with glasses were-four eyes,hehehehehe!!!

    PC was unheard of then. You could easily call someone a "sissy-punk" and get away with it. That's just how it was.......LOL!

    Don't forget the mean words black folks had for other black folks. High yella, nappy head, blurple and more.

    I could list a battery of mean names people used back in the day, but I will refrain. LOL!!

    Yes! You held your arm out, limp-wristed, and alternated moving it and your legs! Think the "two snaps up" only in dance form!!😅

    Punk was also followed closely by "chump"!

    Cooking and baking with your parents. Or in Home Economics - and having a knack for it!

    Comic books? You had to love them secretly, undercover! If anyone knew you read them - "nerd"!!

    Oh, I was a nerd and still deal with a cadre of former nerds. I had some classics back in the day.

    And I remember showing up for first day of 8th grade and finding out my mom had them put Typing on my schedule. I was embarrassed to no end. But that was the single most important class I took for my future success. Didn't have Home Ec but I learned to cook everything I enjoy eating since then.

    Not with us! We'd trade them and the kid that had the biggest collection was generally admired or envied. You's get your ass kicked if you stole someone's comic book back in the day where I lived! LOL!

    I took typing the last semester of my senior year in High School and it proved out to be probably the most valuable class of everything I took in high school.

    I took every typing class my high school offered.
    Why? It was full of pretty girls!! Plus I learned to type really fast, to impress them!

    Me and the bros were comic nerds too. So much so, that we went beyond collecting and created our own books and characters!!

    I'll never forget the day when my younger cousin visited while I was focused on watching a football game. He ran upstairs, dug through my box of comic books and came down with a couple that he liked.

    "Can I have these?" he asked.

    "Nope. Put them back when you're done reading them," I instructed him. It happened a couple more times and the second time, the books he had were the coverless books I bought in 2 and 3-packs at the convenience store. They had no value, so I gave them to him. He ran back upstairs.

    "Can I have this?" he asked, presenting a first issue book that I figured would be worth money some day.

    "No, put it back."

    He trotted back up the steps. The next time, he had a couple of other coverless books that I quickly agreed to give him. Then, a third haul of a few coverless books before it was time for him to go home.

    When the game ended, I went upstairs and discovered that the last couple of times that he came down, the books were without covers because he ripped them off after discovering that I didn't care about them. The little jerk! A couple of them were first issues of popular titles and all I had remaining was their covers lying on the floor beside my box.
