If you keep bugging me, I'm gonna cancel your Christmas!

"punch your ticket" is more frequently used in my part of the world.

"Dutch treat" everyone pays their own way. A Dutch Uncle does not have the financial burden of a real uncle. This is used infrequently in my part of the world.

Never used in my part of the world.

Isn't it used to describe someone who gives avuncular advice?

That's good. Some have to get confidence from drinking alcohol. :wink:
