to my dad. I would say, "I wish I had a better job". Or, "I wish I had a better car". Or, "I wish I had better clothes". And he would reply, " Wish in one hand and shi* in the other and see what fills up faster".
My grandad used to say "Want in one hand and 10 cents in the other, how much you got?" Maybe he cleaned it up for me.
yup, my Dad too. good times.
