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

Be Bold!

Being bold is often looked at as being pushy or being politically incorrect, and in most cases rude. In most all social circumstances the person who is the “outspoken” friend who says what they want and states their mind is the rude one or is also classified as the “bitchy girlfriend”.

Never in my professional experience have i encountered being bold as being a negative thing when it comes to pursing what you want. Think of all the big tech giants out there, and all of the greatest innovators of our generations, they all didn’t take no for an answer and they were bold.

Being bold can get you the meeting with the perspective client you’re looking for, get you the raise you’ve been wanting, or even provide you with the ability to get your child into the private school your wife has been eyeballing for years.

Never be afraid to be bold and get what you want no matter the setting or situation.

Being bold exudes confidence.

Be confident. Be bold.

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.
