OBITUARY NOTICE


Obituary Notice....
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.

He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as knowing when to come in out of the rain, why the early bird gets the worm, life isn't always fair, and maybe it was my fault.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you earn) and reliable parenting strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a six-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job they failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer Panadol, sun lotion or a sticky plaster to a student; but, could not inform the parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar can sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

Common Se nse was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason.

He is survived by three stepbrothers;

I Know My Rights,

Someone Else is to Blame,

and I'm A Victim.

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him pass this on. If not join the majority and do nothing.

It is a sad day indeed my friend. I caught up on your last few posts too. Did you see Dex the other day at least when you were supposed too? All I can say is take every opportunity you're given, cover your ass and hopefully over time the ex will settle down about it all. I never had overnights for a year after I split up with the ex either.

Still, you should have credited the author that inspired this reworking of an original essay.

I googled up "death of common sense" and found that this post was pretty much paraphrased from other works.

Thanks Kieth, I got it in an e-mail, there was no credit given, or I would have. I prolly should have at least put Author Unknown. In the future I will remember that

Thanks for the reminder

I NEVER see you on. I thought you were avoiding me.
You probably see me losing connection which has been
happening more lately.
