"You don't have kids. You don't know what you're talking about."

And if someone else "reaches out" to me, I might have to scream.

And, when did "So ... " become the first word of every sentence? Followed by
"kind of" and "sort of" interjected along the way. GAH.

"Here you go young fella. " Spoken to me at a ballpark beer stand this weekend. Might as well have called me old-timer.

"It's just common sense."

[meaning "I can't think of any coherent argument for it, so just accept it like I do."]

Mr. A. and I hear this gem at the gym: "Hope I can still work out like that when I'm your age." And I get, "I wish I could get my mother to work out."

(Why the heck can't they just tell us "Whoo-ee! You're animals!" and leave it at that? )

So, mine would be (sorry, Accidental Retiree, I've a very bad habit for that word...I'll work on it):

a) Do you know the Lord?
b) why don't you....?
c) You are just lucky!

"You have about a year to live" certainly got my attention.

That was about 10 years ago.

Number 1 in my hit parade:

"Honey, I've been thinking....", which is almost ALWAYS followed by something I'm not going to enjoy.....

I'd like to read/hear a few more pronouns.

It seems like people are grunting at me.

Mostly heard from my brother who worked until he was almost 70.

"You've just been fortunate..."

Yea, well if you hadn't partied, gambled, drank and smoked every weekend, started having kids at age 18, and trying to buy everything all your friends had, you might have gotten lucky, too.

"But you were a two family income..."

If you'd told your wife to get off her lazy butt 40 years ago, you would have been, as well.

"I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth, with parents who could put me through college."

Neither was I, numb n&ts, I'm your brother. Remember?

It's always somebody else's fault...

"I hear you, but...."

This basically means "I wasn't actually listening to you, but now I am going to shove my point of view down your throat".
