Obituary For Mr. Common Sense


Recommended Posts

> London Times Obituary of the late Mr. Common Sense

> Interesting and sadly rather true.



> 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 can earn) and reliable 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 6-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

> that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly

> children.


> It declined even further when schools were required to get parental

> consent to administer sun lotion or an Aspirin to a student; but could

> not

> inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an

> abortion.


> Common Sense lost the will to live as the 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 could 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 Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his

> wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason. He is

> survived by his 4 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, I Want It Now, 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.'



> Never Attribute To Malice That Which Is Adequately Explained By Stupidity



> Forget the troubles that pass your way;

> BUT NEVER forget the blessings that come each day.

That's so true... The other day I had just parallel parked my truck at my school and here comes some stupid person who thinks there going to fit between the 3 feet thats infront of me. I just sat there and laughed at this idiot untill the dumbass came within an inch of hitting my truck then I honked the horn and who ever it was got scared and sped off. Many people dont have a bit of common sense, it's pretty damn sad if you think about it.
