19 Things all Irish Mothers say...

Do you think I’m made of money?
Close the door! Were you born in a barn?
What part of ‘no’ don’t you understand?
If I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a thousand times.
Do you think this is a hotel?
You'll get a chill in your kidneys.
Well don't come crying to me when it happens.
That was a very quick mass.
You'll have my heart broken.
Is there another drop in the pot?
You'll be glad of it later.
Are you codding me?
It was a lovely funeral, all the same.
You're acting the maggot now.
Ask St. Jude, sure.
Turn on the big light.
Turn off the big light.
And it's all the rage is it?
You'll be the death of me.
