Default Old sayings. (parents used to say)

I read a couple in another thread so thought a thread on the subject would be popular -

To the younger members - yes our parents really did used to say this stuff.



beerhunter - don't run with scissors and always wear clean pant in case you get run over.

Slayer - always tuck your vest in when it's cold

Never wear your coat in the house as you wont feel the benefit when you go outside.

geetee - My best advice to new brewers would be:
Always make more than you can drink, just in case!

I doubt his parents said that - CT

got loads here -
If the wind changes your face will stay like that.
(Don't) come in until the lights are on.
Eat your crusts and your hair will turn curly
Eat fish and get brainy
Cold hands and a warm heart....
And some from the really old ones - n'er cast a cloot til may is oot

Not sure if this is regional or not but:

Sh!t for luck!

If a passing bird happens to hit you from above its meant to be lucky?

My mother in law would head straight to the betting shop if this happened expecting to win.
