So, I'm at the Giant Eagle (local grocery store) near my work for lunch, and I needed to pick up a few things and when I come out to my car, I see this sticking on my trunk near the license plate

hsj8km.jpg

My first reaction was that I was looking at the wrong Grand Prix, as I had parked in a different lane than usual. But no, this is my car, so someone actually stuck this to my trunk while I was in the store.

Now, I happen to agree with this sticker on the whole. At least not outwardly being a dick. You can be a dick all you want, just put on a pleasant facade and everything is fine. That's why this was baffling, because I don't act like a dick, nor do I drive like a dick.

But it got me to thinking, how have you guys learned lessons that have stuck with you?

Like how the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles taught me to conserve water while brushing my teeth. Or how, at the tender age of three, I learned not to wear pants with a zipper unless you have underwear on.

    Really dumb question, but if you live in an area of the US that isnt having water shortage problems or whatever, what effect is conserving water really going to have? Wouldn't it all recycle eventually or something? Also yeah it is dumb, but if you are ignorant about something, it is better to ask a question and get an answer than stay ignorant.

    Unless it makes you look stupid.

    Stupid!

    I remember learning not to waste water from a cartoon on Sesame Street, of a kid brushing his teeth while his sink sucked water directly out of a pond outside his house where a fish was. The fish eventually called up his house and told him to turn the water off, there was like 3 inches of water left for the fish. Man, that fish had it rough.

    As a man who is in his second and hopefully last marriage (things are wonderful FYI), who has fathered his own son and is called "Dad" by his stepson while the true father is an absentee, who is a few months away from 30 and was there when when the Berlin Wall fell, when the USSR collapsed and has patrolled near the Korean DMZ, has survived the horrors of Afghanistan and made it home. As a man who has been to the bottom of the pit of alcoholism and back and back again;

    Every lesson I've ever learned has been due to experience. It's the same with every generation and a characteristic of our species. Caveat to this is, a person can suffer the experience that would normally "teach them a lesson" about whatever and miss it completely if they are close-minded.

    There's more that I feel like elaborating on but I'm tired of typing for this one post.

    Alcohol makes everything go down smooth. I don't care if it does say "Do not mix with alcohol" on the bottle of pills. If my doctor didn't want me slamming back my meds with two glasses of Jack and coke, he shouldn't have prescribed them to me in the first place.
