When was the last time that you offered a young kid $5 to mow your yard. You have a lot of grief coming...

Today's reality.

My neighbor is 25 and he asked if I knew how to install a doorknob because the one he had was backwards. He said the keyhole needed to be on the outside and his was on the inside. I started to laugh but went over anyway. He pulled it out of the bag and began to show me by holding it up to the door. All of a sudden he said, "Huh, I could have sworn I bought the wrong one but now it looks as though it is the correct one. I swear when I held it up the first time it was the other way."

After several minutes trying to explain it to him I figured it would be quicker to just go ahead and do it.

My son was pissed when I told him that I would teach him how to change a tire instead of paying for roadside service.
He was even more pissed when he got a flat after not learning how to change the tire that day.
Lesson taught. Perhaps not learned......we will see. The invitation to learn how to change a tire still stands. As well as how to save money and jump Start a car.....

We failed !!!!! We have no one to blame but ourselves..........

My kids are not wonderful but my youngest is 29. I taught him to drive on a stick, he changed a tire in our driveway at 16, because I made him. He got a 100% on his driving test he was the first in his schools history......... because I made sure he knew how............ He has never been in an accident.....

He got his masters degree and bought a reasonable house. Last month he paid off all his school loans. He still drives a stick he still owns his car he helped to buy new in 2007. He has done many home repairs on his own house including changing out his garbage disposal. He was given an outdoor table set which he recently refinished and it looks better that it did new.

Sorry I blame the parents not the kids..................... we failed..............
