Neither of my parents use many "colorful metaphors", but my maternal grandmother's family uses cuss phrases...

Have Funds, Will Retire

...not doing anything of true substance...

You may not LOVE me, but you WILL RESPECT me................ (Dad when he got really pissed at me, after I said I hated him) (I was 9 years old)
Consult with your own advisor or representative. My thoughts should not be construed as investment advice. Past performance is no guarantee of future results (love that one).......:)

This Thread is USELESS without pics.........:)

This thread is better than therapy.

Dad was a perennial home handyman: "GíDa*n modern design!"
ĎSplains way I never wanted to own a house.

"You vote with your dollar."

A sign in the basement workroom: "You get too some oltd and too late schmart."

Mom: "Ask me no questions, Iíll tell you no lies."

"How would that look?" Me: "Iím more interested in how it really is."

While driving through other neighborhoods, "this how the other half lives."

"Are you sure you donít have to go, last chance."

"Are you going to be warm enough in that?" Oh, those MidWestern winters.

Interesting how many of their favorites were financial. Maybe they taught me more about money than I thought.
