My favourite saying for "get on with it" is "Sh i t or get off the pot."
Do you get many complaints from parents, then?
I don't tend to use it at work DT! I am sometimes tempted admittedly.
I know you don't!
I can't stop tittering at that.
All this ******** is going to get is into trouble!
In Scotland, "a bit peely wally" was so much more miserably descriptive than 'off colour' or 'looking pale'
It's allowed!! ******** is allowed!!
Of courshe it ish - for reshting!
Is he s(h)itting on one of these?
I do like:

I learned a couple from my mum when I was going through a particularly rough time at work a couple of years ago that have stuck with me.
'flies have conquered the flypaper' was one, and 'before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves' was the other.
They weren't much comfort at the time, but I find myself thinking of them often now that the raw pain of the situation has dulled.
Others I like are 'you don't get a dog and bark yourself' (when my kids complain about having to do chores) and 'I'd rather regret something I did than something I didn't do' (which I discovered is usually good advice, unless the thing in question is jagerbombs).
When we were too demanding, my mum always used to say, "I'll fan you for the other a'penny"
I heard this for the first time yesterday, a recommendation on good management for Justin Trudeau, who just might become Canada's next PM. The idea was, he doesn't have to know everything, he just has to surround himself with people who know everything about their area of expertise and let them do their jobs.
When I'm trying to reason with Daughter1 I always preface my remarks with: Look, let's be honest.....
And then I proceed to totally pull my punches and skirt round things!
I think it was an escalation of, "It's enough to give you the sh*its!"
My husband has some colourful ones. However hungry I am, my appetite always eases when he comes out with "I could eat at scabby horse between two rusty mattresses."
