"use it up wear it out make do or do without"
Wow. My grandma used to say that all the time!
those crazy gen-G kids.
This slogan is carved into railroad ties that shore up a front yard in Winter Harbor, Maine. The person added an extra line at the end: "Or do without".
"use it up wear it out make do or do without"Well sure, but sewing it shut is a little harsh isn't it? Although I'd try to climb inside a lawnmower too if some mad bint sneaked up behind me with a needle, thread, and malicious intentions directed towards my behind.
