    When we were young my mom used to say that all the time. I guess it was to shut us up about the hand me downs.
    "If no one made mistakes they wouldn't put rubbers on the end of pencils". (or anything else comes to that!)
    These are some of the most common ones I grew up with. My mom was great for throwing out new sayings all the time:
    Born on the wrong side of the tracks.
    He's a wolf in sheep's clothing.
    Why buy the cow when you can drink the milk for free.
    The squeaky wheel gets the oil.
    Loose lips sink ships
    On a wing and a prayer.
    "You don't know what you don't know!"

    Simple...and applies to this website! :)
    I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired.
