...patient, kind, and understanding?

No context for this one, just felt I had to confirm for the un-initiated that this is, in fact, a direct quote.

Classic. Snake should give the backstory. I think this one was his.

I think a little backstory should always be given, either in the original post or the comments, by the stevenson brother at whom the comment was directed.

This is a quote from A Christmas Story that reminds me of your pops:

"My father worked in profanity the way other artists might work in oils or clay. It was his true medium, a master."

...but in a good way.

The reason I didn't give any backstory on this one is the fact that this is sort of a staple of my dad's vocabulary. It's like his own private truism that he tosses out like others might say "you've got to cut your losses" or some such thing.

Yeah, but I thought Dad said it for the first, or maybe most memorable, time to Jake. I forgot the circumstances.

I agree with Roy - the backstory is going to be a funny part of this whether in the orignal post, comments or added to the post later.

I actually can't remember the original. If I had to guess, I think it was when the transmission on my truck went out a few years back. I was like "$1000?! Wtf?" And Dad was all "Well, you HAVE to fix it. Just, 'take it in the ass, and move on down the road.'" Like llogg said, it's a staple of the Dad vocab.
