I grew up with drunks for parents. They never really taught me any values. It wasnt until i was 14 that i found someone who actually taught me what it was to have values. At 14 i moved in with my friends family at the request of his father. While his son went out to party every night he kept me home to help him remodel his house, build his garage(twice because of a neighbors error with a tractor), and act as his personal chauffeur. I did this until i was about 23 years old when he finally released me from his service. I didnt want to leave because i knew he still needed me. An opprotunity arose that he knew would make me successful. He kicked me out of his house because i didnt want to take the offer. So i took the job and applied everything he had tought me. The amazing thing is i didnt know i was doing it...he had taught me to work. He taught me to work hard, to take pride in the work you were doing. To quote him "you can have fun now, or you can learn to build a better life"
@MMSieBreeze, i still hold on to the mny lessons this man gave me...and i cant thank him enough for teaching me what it meant to have priorities and to provide for the family i love...i am a success story....and it was all thanks to listening to an old man
@MMSieBreeze, was really thinking there’d be a Loch Ness monster owing you about tree fiddy by the end of this
@MMSieBreeze, is this pasta?
@MMSieBreeze, that’s why millennials and gen z people are so easy to step over in the work force. Mid 20’s for me and my god... it’s so easy. Barely any work ethic, lazy, entitled and little weak minded babies.
@MMSieBreeze, I clicked into the comments just to upvote this. It's a beautiful story, thank you.
Is this a thing? I do that. I eat apples almost exclusively that way. Am I an old dude?
Give me some advice?
@crazysheep, it’s better to be hated for who you are than to be loved for who you pretend to be.
@NotFlat, thanks for the advice old dude.
@NotFlat, i expected to see a smart ass response....but instead you drop some pure logical wisdom...10/10
@crazysheep, you don’t drown by falling into the water. You drown by staying there.
@NotFlat, no, pretty sure I want people to like my facade because soon the facade becomes real.
@NotFlat, what if people love me for who I am but I hate who I pretend to be?
That was a genuine question. My mind doesnt work right
@BulbousBiscuit, the simple answer would be to embrace who you truly are. Go with your instinct instead of second guessing yourself. I know it's one thing to say it and another to do it, but that's the best advice really. If people prefer you for who you are, you don't have to try, just be you.
@Jipz, thank you
*peels apple and eats off the blade* put butter on poptarts.
Am I taking the apple, the knife, the advice, all three, or a combination of the three?
@wolfang, never try to take a knife from an old man
@GonMoose the Great, yeah cause that crazy bastard still has an apple
He has never once washed that knife
Ramsey Bolton, for example
Home alone 1 reference?
@ConfusedWhat, Dennis the Menace. Not sure that’s a guy I’d be taking advice from, to be completely honest.
