Had to call my mom and read her this one. See agreed, direct quotes.
My mother have said these things many of times.:thumbup:
You must be the twin that I was told about as our birth date is the same to boot. :no:
I know a few people who have the same birthdate, or within a day or two.
Another one my mom would say if all 7 of us were giving her a hard time was: "You're gonna drive me to drink!" ...:laughing: We've talked about how saying some of those quotes these days could land a mother in jail...LOL:yes:.
I use to say #25 to my youngest daughter all the time. It worked!!! :thumbup:
I can't even count the number of times I heard #25!
Well, I did have a kid who turned out a lot like me. He's 24, and a 3rd year electrical apprentice. Works for the same company I do. He'll very likely be one of those guys who's running work while he's still an apprentice.
I'm VERY proud of him!
P.S. My mom and dad and I laugh about #25 a lot!
