TODAY WOULD SAY..
OF WHAT THIS WILL DO TO HER SELF-IMAGE!)...NO...I LEARNED MY LESSON. I KNEW I WAS SUPPOSED TO PUT MY NAME ON EVERYTHING THAT WAS HANDED IN...TIME AND TIME AGAIN HE WOULD TELL US..'DON'T FORGET TO PUT YOUR NAME IN THE UPPER RIGHT-HAND CORNER... CONSEQUENCES!!!..(DO PARENTS OR TEACHERS EVEN HAVE THEM, ANYMORE??)  THEY SHOULD!  WAS I TAUGHT A LESSON, HERE?..YOU BET I  WAS!..WAS IT A HARSH, LESSON?  YOU BET IT WAS!  DID I LEARN...ANYTHING..FROM THIS LESSON?  YOU BET I DID!  (DO YOU THINK THAT I EVER FORGOT TO PUT MY NAME ON MY PAPER, AGAIN??... NEVER!)   TWO LESSONS WERE TAUGHT TO ME, THAT DAY...1.LISTEN...FOLLOW DIRECTIONS..HE DIDN'T GIVE ME...ANOTHER CHANCE...IT WAS...TOO LATE.  'THANKS, MR HANEY...I LEARNED MY...LESSON!'  THIS WAS REALLY A 'LIFE LESSON!'  YOU WILL FIND OUT...WHEN YOU GET IN THE 'REAL WORLD'...THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES FOR YOUR ACTIONS: ( YOU SPEED...YOU GET A TICKET)...(YOU EAT TOO MUCH...YOU GET HEAVY)...(YOU GOSSIP...YOU LOSE FRIENDS.)..(YOU SMOKE/DRINK..YOU GET UNHEALTHY)...(YOU LIE/STEAL..YOU LOSE RESPECT)..(.YOU GAMBLE..YOU LOSE YOUR MONEY)..(YOU GET ANGRY...YOU LOSE CONTROL) ...(YOU WORK HARD...YOU MAKE MONEY)ETC..ETC..'WHEW'.THIS WAS THE SAME TEACHER WHO SCOLDED ME WHEN I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE ON PATROL DUTY AND I HAD PLAYED 'TRENCH'  (DODGEBALL ON THE TENNIS COURT)...INSTEAD..HE SAID TO ME...AND I WILL NEVER FORGET IT..'YOU KNOW, CAROLE...EVERYTHING ISN'T ALWAYS GOING TO BE PEACHES AND CREME FOR YOU!'  ( I HAD NO IDEA...WHAT HE MEANT..BUT NOW I DO) .NOT EVERYTHING IN LIFE IS GOING TO BE FUN...(ALL THE TIME!)WE MAY WANT TO DO SOMETHING ELSE..SOMETIME...BUT UNTIL THAT TIME COMES...WE MAY HAVE TO STICK WITH THE JOB WE HAVE. (AND BE THANKFUL YOU HAVE A JOB!)  BELIEVE ME...WE HAVE ALL HAD A JOB WHERE YOU THINK..'.WHY AM I HERE?..(IT'S CALLED THE 'WORK ETHIC')..  RESPONSIBILITY...IF YOU SAY THAT YOU WILL DO IT...DO IT! (AND DO IT WELL).. IT PROBABLY ISN'T GOING TO BE AS MUCH FUN AS PLAYING TRENCH... (OR GOLF..FISHING..TENNIS..SKIING..ETC)  BUT DO A GOOD JOB IN WHATEVER YOUR JOB MAY BE!..BRRRRR..IT MIGHT FREEZE, TONIGHT! CE
