Potty Diva's post got me thinking <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I'm looking for a response for people who tell my son that "he better be good or Santa won't come and bring him presents" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">: for the love of macaroni, my son was only 17 months old when a stranger said this to him.<br><br>
i find it so rude that someone is telling my child to behave himself or he won't get presents 8 months from now. i mean, come on. i'm sure this individual was trying to be helpful (i mean my son was sitting smiling on my hip, obviously in need of being reminded to behave himself <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">: ).<br><br>
anywho, i'm rambling.<br><br>
any catchy sayings??<br><br>
thanks<br>

the best response i've ever heard to shut ppl up fast comes from my friend who is not jewish.<br><br>
she simply says "we're jewish".<br>
and walks away <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> he he he<br><br>
i personally have said "my kids need to behave well cuz its the right thing to do, not because they''ll get a reward. but thanks for your concern"<br><br>
or once at the mall when feeling particularly snotty i said to one man "and santa doesn't bring gifts for nosy people who butt into other ppl's business either"<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!">
