What Did You Get Spanked With
Back when, that's what responsible Parents did to discipline their Children.
My Dad was a Life Long Military (Army) ABN CSM. When he would get home from a day On Base and Mom would tell him what you had done, you were gonna get that whipping that Mom said/told you you were going to get, "when your Dad get's home."
Being in Fatigues or Khakis, he would have on a Web belt with the metal tip. He'd take you into your bedroom, make you pull your pants down and bend over the bed. Then always tell you, "This is going to hurt me, more than it is going to hurt you." (Never understood that until I got older.)
You'd typically get it on the butt, or on the top of your legs, right below your butt. Pretty tender spot. (More so than the butt.)
Pap Paw (when there) would make you "Go cut your own Switch." (A young flexible tree branch, a little thinner than your finger, for those of you not Southern.) If he was really mad, he'd whip out his thin leather belt and use it right then.
At School, it would typically be an aerated (with holes in it) Wood Paddle. Usually prominently displayed on the Principle or more usually the VP's wall.
If you got Mom mad enough, you'd get slapped in the face, before Dad got home.
All your friends Parent's had permission to spank you, if needed. In which case, you were guaranteed another spanking, when you got home. Ditto for School.
Any Butt Whipping I got, I deserved. (And) I am a better Person/Man because of it.
Anyone care to share?
