This is about phrases that you learned never to say by yourself as a kid, teen, or an adult.

e.g. "I'm bored," is the 1st phrase I learned not to say when my parents replied, "I'll find something for you to do."

My daughter asked me if her prom dress made her look fat. Being a wise-ass I just had to respond, "It's not the dress."

My wife caught up to me before my daughter did

I made that mistake a few times, when I was younger.

Basically any time I try to explain something using logic when I'm arguing with a family member who is trying to use emotional appeal on me. Logic is bad and I can't ever be right.

I have a few choices but none of them are good.

1. Get angry. This gets them to back down a little bit temporarily but the issue keeps simmering slowly until they bother me about it a few days later.

2. Ignore them. But they'll keep bothering me about it until I eventually do #1 or #3.

3. Play along with them. But then I never get a chance to actually be right and they'll treat it like it's in the past. Funny. That never seems to happen when I'm the one who is right. When I give up on the argument, it's dead and gone. When they lose an argument, that just means it'll come back up again later, like an invasive weed.

This was the 2nd phrase I learned not to say. My dad's reply would always be "what to you know? Nothing,"
