Translation of the Things Parents Say

“Because I said so…” Translation: I have no idea why, but if you don’t I will staple you to a wall and make your life misery.
“In my day…” Translation: Followed by what we can assume is a gross exaggeration.
“Go to your room…” Translation: I have no idea what else to do with you, so go where I don’t have to look at you and consider my incompetence in this situation.
“You can tell me whatever it is…” Translation: You can tell them, however note they've not stated what reaction they will have.

“What did I tell you about that?” Translation: I can’t remember where I stand on this issue please remind me.
