: : I was in a store and heard a daddy tell his little girl: "If you don't stop telling me what you want, you're not going to get it."

: : But if she doesn't tell what she wants, how is she going to get it?

: My guess: he meant "Once is enough."

She probably said it more than once because he didn't acknowledge her the first time. I just thought it was funny.
