Yes, I have told you at least fifty times to do your homework. Do you remember why I keep on you? Yes, you were the kid that had a 100 percent test average that grading period, but you also had a 0 percent homework average which averaged to a D.
Must I keep asking you to take out the garbage? It’s for sanitation’s sake. Do you want it to start to smell in here? It’s your job! Hey, do you want your allowance or what? And while you’re at it, don’t forget the recycle bin!
Clean your room now! No, I’m not going to do it for you. Do you want us to end up on that crazy television show about messy people? Yeah, you’re the one who’s going to be embarrassed when that happens. I swear if you don’t clean it, I’m going to hire a dump truck to come in and haul it all to the dump!
I’ve been waiting all week for you to mow the grass. I’ve asked you at least twice or maybe three times. When are you going to do it? I really don’t want the neighbors to report us to the city for having our grass too long. If we get reported, you’re paying the fine. Yeah, buddy, that’s right.
Were you raised in a barn or something? Close the door already! Why can’t you ever remember to wipe your feet? Look at all that dirt you’re tracking in!
Again, will you please wipe the crumbs off the counters, clean up your spilled drinks, and rinse out your dishes? Do you want a house full of cockroaches or ants or mice or some other evil vermin that is attracted to food? And when you’re finished in there, try closing the cabinet doors, and turning off the light.
Must you play video games this late? I don’t know how anyone could play those stupid games that long! Aren’t you tired? I’m exhausted! Don’t you think you should go to bed now? I think you should go to bed! I’m going to bed!
Just get over it because you know I’m going to nag until the cows come home or until you mow the grass or take out the trash or whatever it is that I think you should do! And it’s all in the name of love!
