When I was a child nothing struck fear directly into my soul like my mother saying "you just wait until your father gets home!".

That was the scariest and usually meant a swift change in behaviour or a negotiation with mum, to not dob. 

Mum is English so she sometimes would bust out a phrase and I didn't know what she was talking about "stop faffing about" 

Did/does your mum have a classic saying?
