Kids Today… WTF?!

Seriously, what the fuck is wrong with kids today? There is a total lack of respect with kids in society today and the world is completely screwed. Multiple times over this Christmas holiday off work I have been out at stores and have seen children screaming at their parents and back talking like it was no big deal. Then I see the parents just laugh and brush it off like their kid is a fucking angel?!

These kids need a swift kick in their asses before the cruel world knocks them down. I am in my mid-thirties and never in my entire childhood could I have gotten away with talking to my parents so disrespectfully.

The world is screwed if these kids are “the future”…. SMH

House Calls!

Got a hilarious telephone call from one of my college buddies and had to share it.

Blake is one of our friends who was the ring leader of our party circle. We would do everything together in high school, college, grad school, etc. This guy was literally the co-pilot to all of our greatest fuck ups. Literally.

Blake met a wonderful gal while in grad school and married her. They now have three kids, live in a very affluent neighborhood, and he has a job as a doctor that works on rich people. Literally, he makes house calls for rich people that don’t want to GO to the doctor. Needless to say, with his clientele he deals with a lot of absent minded individuals.

He calls to share a story with me about one of his clients that calls him at 11PM at night screaming because her six year old son is up screaming that his stomach hurts, and she thinks it could be something “more”. Whatever more is…

So, Blake takes the house call and heads over to their house, which luckily is only a few neighborhoods over from Blake. Luckily, his wife is very understanding and allows him to leave for all of these silly house calls. (Many of his clients are public figures, sports stars, etc. so almost ALL of his calls are house calls)

Blake gets to the house, pushes the call box at the gate, and they let him in.

Walks up to the house, and the Mom comes out (with cocktail in hand) screaming at Blake to hurry up and help her son who is upstairs and in lots of pain.

She escorts him upstairs to her son’s room and then leaves.

He finds this boy sitting on the shitter playing his game-boy. The kid who will remain nameless, looks at Blake while still playing game boy and shitting….. and goes “Hey man. I’m fine. I told my mom my ass was on fire because we had Mexican tonight, and she decided to call you”

At this point Blake is dying laughing and tells him “But you mom called and said you were in lots of pain and you were screaming”…..

The kids reply “Yeah, i was screaming at my Game Boy”

 

SMH.

Good Book! Read it!

This will be quick, as i don’t have much time today with how hectic work has been the past two weeks. Unfortunately, it does not show any signs of letting up which is also a blessing and a curse!

I stumbled upon a book called Living With a Seal by Jesse Itzler, and it was recommended to me by one of by buddies who actually knows Jesse in some weird way. He said that it is by far one of the funniest reads because of the way the book is written, and if you grew up in the 70’s  or 80’s  due to the mindset of the book, you’ll find it even funnier because of how our parents were. There’s a bunch of stuff that as an adult you can easily look over, and lose sight of. This book was a good reset for me, and likely will be for many other people.

Growing up my parents had a very “militarily” style of parenting, which made me and my brother very strong people. There was never a day of feeling down on yourself, or a day or not making your bed, getting up late, not doing chores, and not being a good person. Point blank, every day you had objectives, and you accomplished them. Period.

No matter if it was washing the dishes, taking the tractor out to cut the fields, or even just cleaning around the house, you had objectives. And you were only told to do them about 2-3 times, until you started catching on. As a pre-teen, if you saw the floors were dirty, you’d better get mopping before mom catches the floors looking like this. If she told you to mop the floors she would critique the shit out of you until those floors were perfect. Much easier to do it before she could complain. This logic applied to everything we did growing up in Georgia far before it was populated with housewives and country clubs.

This book i read literally reiterated all of the things my parents taught me growing up. On days i didn’t need to be up early, i was waking up early to be successful and complete my objectives for the day. Period. (They always got done)

As an adult, now with a family, company, and more relationships than i know what to do with, there comes a time where you ask yourself “What are my daily objectives?”

The things that make you TICK. Figure it out. It’s a hell of a great book, especially if you’re a child born in the 70’s or 80’s.

 

This “Must Have” for Everyone!

So, if anyone knows us they’ll quickly figure out that we like a few things…

Cars, Planes, Guns, Golf, Fishing, Watches, and… Gadgets. Oh my Heavens the gadgets! We love things that make our lives better/easier, as most of us want to spend more of our time doing the stuff we love.

Recently, we stumbled across these and we absolutely love them. Snap Power

These guys literally, took a standard receptacle cover plate, and embedded LED’s with a light sensor so when it gets dark, they automatically come on! The best part, they’re literally EFFORTLESS to install. (Seriously, go check them out… )

These are great for lighting a hallway, or even using in the kitchen for your countertop receptacles. We have kids that are always playing with night lights, so this solves that problem pretty good and quick for us, plus they light up the kitchen countertops extremely well!

Hope you all enjoy these as much as we have around our homes!
