Parents Say The Darndest Things: 20 Crazy Things Moms & Dads Say To Their Kids

The other day I actually heard the words, “You’re cruisin’ for a bruisin!'” escape my mouth.

Cruisin. For. A. Bruisin.

Exactly what did I mean? Was I really threatening to beat my son until black and blue marks appeared on his skin? Of course not. But I heard the sentence so many times during my own childhood it bobbed to the top of my mind like a rubber ducky released from the depths of a pool.

Not only that but, much like when I shouted the above sentence, half the time I don’t even know what the hell I’m saying. I mean, seriously.

If you’ve said two or more of the below sayings, well, I have some bad news for you; you’re turning into your parents as well.
