ILLEGITAMI NON CARBORUNDUM
I have seen this happen when "life is a skateboard in the mall" and "May I help you" at McDonald's occurs. A lot of what I call the legion of the lost" have never been able to make the transition.I actually watched a mother at great clips pay for her college grad son's haircut.A friend of mines kid got a full scholarship to Depauw - Greenfield, In - Majored in philosphy. So? He is going to ponder life while someone else picks up the tab? It is time for us to put a put in these fucker's asses right after we break their dinner plates.Sarge
A lot in school bored me, I was more than happy to hit the jobs in life.
Sarge, I can top your story. When I was teaching at a university, I had a mother protest the failing grade I gave her son on an assignment -- the paper that got turned in was a plagiarized piece of garbage, an obvious cut and paste from the internet. She threw a fit, and it turned out one reason she was so upset was that she had "written" the paper, not her kid. It takes a special type of idiot parent to still be doing the kid's homework when the "kid" is old enough to drink legally. . . and then to do that homework badly.
