One of my favorite things to do is to reuse quotes from old movies. I like doing this because I can say something in jest and quote from a movie and if the person gets offended I just laugh it off as a joke. For example:
When one of my kids messes up, instead of yelling at them, I usually say: “There's no way, that you came from my loins. Soon as I get home, first thing I'm gonna do is punch yo mamma in da mouth.”
When my boss expects me to do something without telling me what I am supposed to do and later get mad at me for not doing it, I say: “What we have here is a failure to communicate.”
When my dear wife gets mad at someone and wants my opinion on what to do, I usually say: “let’s give em the old number 6.”
And when someone gets angry at me and throws a fit, I usually sarcastically say: “Lighten up Francis”
You have to guess the movies though.
I also hate clichés and not just because I can’t spell the word. (thank you spell check). I often misquote them just to pick at people. My least favorite is “There are no stupid questions” So when someone says that I usually follow it up with “yea only stupid people.” Now before you jump on me for saying “stupid people” “walk a mile in my tennis shoes” If you had to sit through some of the meetings I do and listen to some of the questions that are asked you wound understand why I said that and also understand why brother and sister should never marry each other.
Have a great day,
