Back to the post about duh. I can’t tell you how many times I hear that phrase now. Duhhhh. DUH! You are so DUHhhhhhh! Stop being duh. It makes me absolutely crazy. It’s now one of the words that gets Jack in trouble. I think I said it for at least 17 years growing up. But now it just aggravates that crap out of me. Doesn’t he get that already?? Duhhhhh…!!!
Jack: Can I watch a video?
me: It’s time for dinner in a few minutes…
Jack: But it’s not dinner right now so I can watch right? Duhhhh!
me: Stop saying DUH.
Jack: You just said it so why don’t you stop saying it to me?
me: (warning look and tone) Jack, I don’t like it. It’s rude. So stop saying it.
Jack: YOU DON’T HAVE TO YELL!
me: I didn’t even raise my voice. You’re actually yelling. So stop that also.
Jack: Duhhh, you made me yell.
me: That’s two warnings for Duh. One more and no video at all.
Jack: But you just said it to ME!!!!
me: Can you please stop talking back. Just listen the first time.
Jack: Yeah if you stop yelling at me. Du…(he catches himself)
me: What’s that? Got something to add?
Jack: If you trick me into saying DUH to you then it’s not really my fault if I say DUH, because I didn’t mean it and I’m not saying DUH anymore so can I still watch a video?
me: Nice way to say it 3 times. It’s time for dinner.
Jack: Why didn’t you tell me that?? DUHHHH!!!
