"He was born in the basement and never brought up"
My mother would always tell me " if anything is worth doing, it's worth doing right".
My dad would say "this thing isn't worth the powder to blow it up".
In aviation "pound it to fit, file it to finish, and paint it to match".
Origin of a couple sayings harkening back to muzzle loading rifle days " I'll take the whole kit and kaboodle"-referring to the rifle and all the accoutrements it takes to load, clean and care for the rifle.
Another one "he bought the whole thing, lock, stock and barrel" referring to the parts of the rifle as a whole complete unit.
One that I have used, don't know if I heard it somewhere or came up with it-referring to hired help or the usefulness of a hired hand "sometimes you just have to cut off the dead wood and let it float on down the river".

We had a new Loss Preventive Manager introduce himself at a Staff Meeting a few years ago and said that while looking at our Vice President.
I remember his first name, it was Eric.  He lasted a couple weeks. :D
