Did your parents ever say "do what I say, not what I do, if you know what I mean"?

Huh?

    In a joking manner, yeah. My mom, anyway. She gets on my ass about putting crap away, and then when she leaves something out overnight or something, I'll point it out and be like, "And you tell *me* to pick up stuff," and she'll respond with, "Do as I say, not as I do." :D

    Yes, sometimes they did. This has now turned into the Liberal motto.

    What my parents said doesn't matter. I had four grandparents. They lead by example, as I have throughout my career. You should try it.

    They never said it out loud, but in practice that seems to have been pretty much what they meant.

    Thankfully I'm not really an average teen so my mom never had to really 'force' it on me (kinda...) then my sister. Still pretty annoying though. How am I suppose to learn anything in life if I don't make a few mistakes :p

    Nope, my father was a military man, so pretty much was a lead by example guy. My mother on the other hand was very religious so...had some of the bigotry that often comes along with that.

    My parents never said it to me but they insinutated it. Such as "don't smoke, don't drink, don't drive fast, etc." Just like our current administration who lives by the adage of "do what I say, not what I do!"
