I can’t be anymore direct or truthful than this blog post. I will only add that it is a good idea to learn from others mistakes and bad decisions. Then you know what not to do.
TELL ME ABOUT STUPID
I have been assured it’s not stupid because:
- It seemed like a good idea at the time.
- I had a lot to drink, smoke, or was otherwise drugged.
- Everyone was doing it.
- I did it on a bet.
- All my friends agreed — it was the right thing to do.
- I’m an ignorant ass.
IT SEEMED LIKE A GOOD IDEA AT THE TIME
This only works if you had an idea … and followed it to a logical conclusion. In other words, you were thinking about the decision. If you just did it because you were there, it or he was also there, so y’know, shit happened? That IS stupid. Sorry, but saying it seemed like a good idea doesn’t make it one. Anything done by reflex or without thought? Stupid.
I WAS DRUNK
You had too much to drink? Were really incredibly high? You took a handful of drugs?
