    I did today. My best friend in the world said something to me that just really hit home.

    I am interested what advice you have given/received.

    What say you, fuckers?

    Mostly lousy advice from friends, my Dad gave me good advice when I was younger. Kept me out of trouble.

    Depends...advice is tricky like that. We all try to present the best versions of ourselves. A friend may give you sincere advice with the best intentions but if the info you provided regarding the situation isn't 100% accurate it isn't anything you can really use. That's why being honest is the best way to go. You may alienate many people but fuck them...they most likely never had any real friends anyway. :jj:

    Nah, he was being honest and it was heartfelt. Known him for over 30 years.

    And I appreciate your advice on advice. :hat:

    When he confined me to my room for getting in trouble, he said this is nothing when you get older if you do this shit you'll be confined to a room much smaller for many years. Kinda dumb, but it worked.

    Oh you misconstrue brother, his advice may have been spot on but if you bullshitted about some thing/left out details etc...you can't be mad if you're unable to use it.

    Not singling you out...just my point in general.

    I sort of got that treatment...in between beatings. :jj:

    My dad's version was a bit more harsh. I was basically reminded about how I'd be just another white boy in prison and my own half brothers (most of whom were incarcerated) would kill me on GP if they didn't know who I was.

    That's what inspired your trip or were you just sick of the place in general?

    Nah snaps. I gots a second job that pays more and it's from home, so it made more sense to commit to that one, especially with the kids being out of school for summer soon.

    It's all good. :hw:
