Back in the old days ( mid 50's - 60's ) if my gran saw any couple kissing in the street, she would say ' Makes you spew up What you've never eten ' ( eten as in eaten ).

 

When I was a kid and she saw me climbing high walls, she would shout out at me:

 

' If you fall and break your leg, don't come running to me '

Oh alice , You sound bitter about kids, Just a guess ... Your kids could not get out the house fast enough! >>> Right?
