Default Old Timer Sayings

Lets list some old sayings we've heard from our old timers whether we understood them or not.

My dad always told me "You're pi$$ing up a rope"!

Mechanic or not, that's just good thinking!

Useless as tits on a boar hog

Or referring to having sex as "getting some mouse ear"??????

I used to work with an old guy who would say those two all the time.

Were you born in a barn
Walk up hill both ways to school
I brought you into this world, and I can take you out (my personal favorite)

my friends grandpa would say "i would sooner F*** then eat and always be hungry."

during the fall hunting season a friend would always say "smells like Sadie's rotten crotch" cuz of the dying leaves and stuff.

i have more crude lines but doubt HBT would want them since some are a little racist.

I'm not sure how common this is, but I like "Ehna", roughly translating to "isn't it"?

"Honest to Pete!" (when you might otherwise say sh*t! after spilling dinner on the floor, etc.)

My grandfather always said, when we finished a tile job when I was a kid: "Good enough for women we date."
