This is a question Turning into your parents

Unable to hold back the genetic tide, I find myself gardening in my carpet slippers, asking for a knife and fork in McDonalds and agreeing with the Daily Telegraph. I'm beyond help - what about you?

Thanks to b3th for the suggestion

telling off
I said to one of my kids the other day, "If you drop that and bust it, your mum will go light.".

I've not a clue where it comes from, but I know what it implies. But it's what my dad used to say to me under similar circumstances.

I also sometimes say "ee-li-wa", which is Korean for "come here", and is one of the phrases my dad brought back from his stint in Korea in the early 50s.

how you pick up phrases from your folks...

At least you didn't learn: "Me licky, licky, ten-dollah, luv yu long tyme."
