Oh well my hand hurts because I was to lazy to move my hand from the door closing. Who really hurts-door guy because I can bounce back from it.
Jeff, I know those people every day. It's called public school. It's garbage everyday. I don't want to do that. Oh o hurt my leg at baseball yesterday so I'm slow today. Screw off. I burnt my arm yesterday and it smelled like mig welding for 3 hours and left a scar and was 3000 degrees. People give up after awhile because it is to difficult and no one is riding their butt 24/7. Oh I can't do problem one-can't do crap for the rest of it. This is why we need shop classes. Oh I can't lay a decent bead so I can't do vertical or overhead or I can't mig after 30 minutes so I can't do it. No-sit your butt down and run beads. This also requires shop teachers to tell people that they aren't doing a good job always.
So yeah-Jeff they are everywhere. You probably surround yourself with people that can get crap done.
Nick..you're gonna do well in life because you realize that you can't make excuses for yourself everyday and expect that it's going to benefit you in any way. Your going to take beatings in your life..every one does. You can't get through life unscathed but you are wise beyond your years and that's going to take you far in life. Perhaps the best thing for you is listening to all of us hear,,,from all walks,,,and determining if this is the right path for you. I tell it like it is because I have been through the worst of the worst and I decided one day that my life matters and I am going to have fun for the rest of my days. If it pisses a few people off ...so be it..but life is short and precious and the only people that ever realize the finer things in life are either born privileged or get off their asses and go get it. I honestly have a special place in my heart for people who just shrug off their worldly problems and go on about life. The world is filled to the brim with self-entitled whiners that never amount to anything,,unless they become a "social worker" or a "community organizer" and I wouldn't want those things on my resume. Keep your eyes on the prize and you could be anything. I bet there isn't one old-timer here that wouldn't do things different if they could roll the clock back. You have what has passed alot of us up and you need to cherish that. All my bullshit and kidding aside...this is who I am and this is how I think...don't be a spectator of life...be a participant...and then when I'm long gone, you can come here and give the new litter their ration of shit. Rant over.
What you both said.....Best way to think and look at life...you gonna get shot at and hopefully it misses...you gonna get shit at and most likely get hit...take what comes at you and turn it into somethin good...farmhand your gonna go a long way...nailpounder the only thing I would have done difrent is never start smoking...dumbest thing anyone can start
