    Well at least you went back and finished, never went back when I got booted. Lasted just 4 semesters and one of them was a summer semester, but I don't think the last one counted since I didn't really ever go to class and the few I did show up for I am not 100% sure they were actually my classes.

              OK spill the beans....
              "Sir, I was wondering: did you happen to catch the professional football contest on television last night?"
              "No...I didn't."
              "Oh it was most exhilarating: the Giants of NY took on the Packers of Green Bay and in the end the Giants triumphed by kicking an oblong ball made of pigskin through a big H. It was a most ripping victory."

Cold night in front of a movie at home sure, too many people wander around in sweats looking like they don't give a damn and probably they don't. But when they get home, they hop on the internet and start telling people everything that is wrong with the world and there is nothing they can do about it because somebody else is preventing them. "Not my fault, I didn't do it, I'm incapable of fixing it, you better do something or you are worthless, because somebody else has to fix my life for me."

                Probably extrapalated too much from sweatpants, but you get what I mean.
                This was my laugh of the day. I only wear sweats in and around the house. I'm with you... I feel like a slob if I go out in them.
                I guess peeps are into philosophizing today.... always good for the soul, but also a good time to roll up the pants.

                  • Is anyone on here older than me? ...70... I think you're all young stud muffins.
                    I could bore the hell out of you with stories... but just a few.
                    What Rudy says is true... If you're from a family with challenged finances (just squeeking by) you're less likely to be spoiled.
                    My dad died in '57 when I was 11. He was a paraplegic from a WWII brain injury when I was 8. Day after the funeral my mon says, "You're the man of the house now. Go get a job, and half of every penny you earn goes to the family until you move out.
                    And, I did... worked my *** off, especially making great bucks caddying at a private golf club, April to November, At 21 I was moving out... married, Chem Eng. degree,... movin' on up. hahahaha. MY first job as a graduate, 1968, Chem E was the single highest paying job a graduate could get. $9,300 a year. A Chemist or BS was getting about $7,800. A BA was getting $7,200. In 2013 a graduate Chem E was getting $67,000.
                    So, I'm 11 and the 'man of the house'. Mow the lawn; wash dishes 2X a week. paint the house; put out the garbage3X a week. No toughies, but always busy.
                    The perks? I had ZERO curfew. Serious. I'd stay at my GF house, or go drinking with the guys, and come home at 1 AM when I was 12, and my mom never said a word... just, "I trust you to make good decisions... especially when you're out with the guys." But, I was always the married man and always had long term GFs. , so I was mostly with her. I could buy beer any time I wanted to from the time I was 8. Mom said, "Your uncle Bobby is coming over... go get a 6 pak. The local deli, a block away, was always buy with no questions asked. At 13, 2 weeks before I was 14 and a Freshman in HS, I was brought home by the cops at 1AM... totally drunk and passed out. MY mom never said a word... just gave me a look the next day. I never abused it again until after I was legal at 18 (NY). When I was 50,and my mom had a few more months to live, she told me that I was the easiest person to raise that anyone could imagine. I just did what was expected and got good grades and made good money. I never had an argument with her myentire life. So, I've never taken things for granted. I find there are still a lot of really good kids... they're the silent majority. It;'s the spoiled Aholes that make all the noise.
                    Oh, and finally... serious...my last perk once I was 'the man', my mom cooked to please me... NO foods were cooked that I didn't like... only meats and veggies I liked, etc. My sisters would beg for Brussel Sprouts for Sunday dinner, and other ugly veggies, because mom didn't make them anymore, cuz I didn't like them. In that respect I was spoiled.

                      I too would like 100 mill. Where's the queue?

I lost a lot of things when I was a child. She would always say to me "Say a prayer to Saint Anthony and you will find it." Patron Saint of lost things. She got me a Saint Anthony pendant when I was around 9 or 10, I think it took all of a week to lose it and unlike most things I lost, that pendant I never found again.
                          lol, that's my Mom too. 2 of my 3 sinblings were named after St Gerard

                          Patron Saint of....?

                            Hey! Let's watch the language.

                            We're supposed to be self regulating here, like adults.

My parents always helped and supported, then suddenly they weren't there anymore just at the time I became an pseudo-adult. It was like the world split apart on me and I did not handle it well. Took a couple of years and a bit of help from the only family I had left to grow up and deal with what I am facing not what I want to be facing.

                              Each person has their own path and it isn't fair to group them into particular generational assumptions of behavior and thought process. I miss my parents and wish they were still here, but I am a stronger person today than I would have been if they were still around.
                              I think the book on how you handled it gets written when you're old.

                              And I think you'll come out looking damn good.
