If you don't play the game, you don't have to follow the rules.

  1. When Mum was staying with us a couple of years ago, one night she asked that the rest of her dinner be "put in the fridge" because she couldn't finish it. Rod asked me if I wanted an ice cream sandwich, and Mum said she wanted one too. Rod reminded her that when he was young the rule was that you got no dessert if you didn't finish your dinner.

    "Well, the rules have changed," she responded.

  2. A tricky one, depending on context. I think I don't want my boss to say that to me.
