The Sh!t List!

“Any man can make mistakes, but only an idiot persists in his error.” ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero

A short & sweet post today.
Well, maybe not all that sweet — more stinky, but I like the message anyway.

Mom had a saying which I found myself using today regarding a pain-in-the-ass family member. I said, “they’ve made it to my SHIT LIST”! I realized I haven’t used that phrase in awhile, so it was quite overdue. The Sh!t List began when I was little and Mom was beginning to lose her patience. She’d give us this warning when we were getting out of hand, “you better cut that out right now, or you’ll end up on my sh!t list”! Direct and to the point, and we got it.

shit The Sh!t List!

You get the drift too, I’m sure. So if anyone made it to your sh!t list recently, please share below by clicking that comment button — you can use code names, intitials, symbols, or feel free to tell us the whole sh!tty story.

ITALIAN LESSON: Merda = Sh*t, though not used nearly as often as English. Except in Siamo nella merda = “We’re in the shit.”

    I’m sure both of my kids knew when they were on my shit list whether I actually said it or not. Conversely I’ve found myself on theirs over the years. Shit for Shat, so to speak.

    My mother would die a thousand deaths before she would ever say shit. I love reading about families that aren’t quite so up tight!

    Boy, I can identify. I distinctly remember times I have heard my mother swear. It happened three times. Twice it was “bitch” and once it was “shit”.
    Turns out, now that I’m an adult, I really enjoy swearing in front of her. >:-) We are very close and I think she finds me pretty funny.
