Happens

Happens

Yes, it happens.  It happens when you don’t want it to happen.  It has its way of just popping up at the most inopportune times.

Is there something in the air?

I won’t get in to everything that is going on, but most of it has to do with flakey people.  My parents taught me to be responsible.  The earliest lesson I learned in this regard was when I was about 12.

Toad

I was playing in the orchard at the end of the street.  I found a slot car chassis, and brought it home. There it sat for several days.  Nothing was done to it.

Toad, a boy who lived a few doors down came asking about it.  I told him I found it, and I gave it to him.  You’d think that would have been the end of it, and that I would have been thanked for returning it to its rightful owner.

Nope.  It happens that didn’t work, or so he said.  As a result, I ended up buying him a new slot car.

Ever since that day I am careful to take responsibility.  I’m also careful that I don’t put myself in a situation like I did with the slot car.

Unpaid Judgements

You’d think having an unpaid judgement hanging over your head would be a high priority to resolve.  I have one former tenant in that situation, and several others who SHOULD be in that situation.

My comment to Elizabethe was that someday they’ll go to buy a car or a home and the judgement stop them from getting credit.  She replied that they probably will never get to that point in life.

Sad, but true.

Needed Break

The temple is a needed break tonight.  If I weren’t going to the temple tonight I’d probably withdraw myself from the world.
