PLEASE VISIT SPONSORS BELOW Ps78: Forget not the works of the Lord! Be not like their fathers, a generation wayward and rebellious that kept not its heart --or-- its spirit faithful toward God.
If were a bettin' man, I'd have to say purt' near a hunnert percent.
Yeah, I'm fairly certain it's a veritable "sold-out" situation, you know what I'm sayin'?
As in, by way of an informal straw poll of some of my closest peeps (and a few random squirrels outside my kitchen window--yeah, I'm still working from home), it's a landslide. Dang nearly each person surveyed confessed.
They all openly admit that they have, at least once in lives, said it to their kinfolk.
In fact, in most cases, it was uttered considerably more often than that, yo. The defiant statement (or some similar iteration thereof!) in question is as follows:
"YOU CAN'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO!"
Oh yes, you have. Don't deny it. In fact, upon further investigation, respondents also admitted that they had hurled the hurtful comment at one or both of their parents as children and then again in adulthood.
I get it. No one likes to be bossed. Humans have been proving this since the literal dawn of time.
And yet, in another lop-sided unscientific survey, there's an overwhelming preponderance of evidence to support the notion that, parents give solid advice -- at least, generally speaking. Any of these gems ring a bell?
Sweetie, real friends won't make fun of your jeans just because they didn't cost $300. Not only was Mom right, but NOT having Susie Snobby in your life only made it better, to be clear!
Regardless of the attendance policy, you can't ace a course if you skip it all semester and only show up for the final. How many in the class learned this one the hard way?
I know they aren't calling for it, but take your coat just in case it snows. You went for fashion instead...and froze your tuchus off at the homecoming game, remember?
Feel free to eat ANY other fruit in this entire orchard; just not these particular apples. Well, well, well -- we all know how horribly wrong THAT one went, Capisce?
Look, kids, admit that they know best then suck it up and do the right thing ---just like your Mom and Dad always told you to, a'ight? Heaven knows, it certainly couldn't hurt the state of the world in 2021.
