take the initiative dammit


back in the old days initiative used to be called common sense. it seems that now no one has a clue as to what it is.
i figure that after a person has hit the age of 25, there is nothing left to do, but children are driving me nuts with their inability to self start.

in my house, i am a bit tough on the kids. you can’t walk past a full garbage can and decide that it is now considered artwork. get a new bag and take out the trash homey.

let me give you an example of how over the top this laziness in my life has presented itself.
i have my nephew a couple of days a week for karate.

i had a garbage can full up to you know what with goodness. i took the bag out and then set the can on the table and proceeded to mention that dinner was ready. my nephew pushed the large can to the side and went on with his dinner..

as my momma used to say… if it was a snake it woulda bit ya.
grrrrrr
