After graduating college, a buddy and I rented an apartment that became the de facto hangout spot for our group of friends. I don’t even know who started using it, but the phrase “I know what’s best for you” became a popular catchphrase around the apartment, as it was used to convince others to do something that they might not be 100% on board with (nothing illicit, just stupid fun for guys in their early 20’s).
“What do you mean you don’t want to get tickets for that concert? C’mon, I know what’s best for you.”
“We’re going out. Get ready. I don’t care if you’re tired, I know what’s best for you.”
You know, stupid stuff like that.
