.....but it is complicated.

Was just out of town speaking at a conference. As most people do at those sort of things you leave the cocktail reception and head for the bar. Yep, I did just that with some people I met there. One guy in particular showed interest in me and kept engaging me in conversation. I saw he had a wedding band on and I commented on that. His reply “yes, I am married but it is complicated”.  Excuse me?

I wasn’t interested enough to find out what was complicated about it. I give him kudo’s for not taking his wedding band off while out of town. I suppose that shows some honesty on his part.

Check out these numbers on infidelity: especially the one about business trips.

I am not judging him or anyone else who may cheat. I am only saying this guy was pretty bold about it. He was looking for a one night stand out of town because his marriage was complicated I guess. Hell, what relationship isn’t complicated whether it is friends or marriage.

He was persistent right up until I was leaving the bar to go to my room ALONE. Guess who found me at breakfast and sat beside me? Yep, good ol’ married Chad.

I Did Not Have Sex With That Girl!

According to this article our former president may have started something.

Blow jobs don’t count.  At least to Bill Clinton and our teens.

I don’t recall even knowing about oral sex when I was 15. I believe it was NBC who did a study a few years back about oral sex being no big deal to middle school kids....middle school, how old is that? Better yet, how young is that?

If questioned by their parents they can say they are virgins I guess.

A male friend of mine confessed some time ago to me that he had his first blow job at 37. Since he is a friend of mine on Facebook he is probably turning red right now and hoping like hell I don’t give his name. Good looking normal guy with two very attractive wives – not at the same time. He is probably wondering what went wrong with him if ugly 6th graders are having oral sex.

Now I know why a recent survey of young people named Bill Clinton as their favorite president.

Raising YOUR Kinds

In a couple discussions with my good friend recently, who also does not have children, we have decided we would do a much better job of raising children than today’s parents seem to be doing.

Many kids today are rude, chubby (fat), and lazy.

They are rude because their parents have not taught them any manners. What the hell happened to please and thank you? I can get beyond the “Yes Ma’am” and “Yes Sir” thing just a bit but not much else.  A simple please and thank you seems to be a stretch today. They don’t know about giving someone older their seat or calling someone Mr. or Mrs. if they are older. I would have been slapped into next Thursday if I had called an older person by their first name or dared to even think a chair was for sitting if anyone older was in the room. Not today, no siree! Don’t even get me started on restaurant behaviour.

I think a contributing factor to the chubby thing is they are allowed to sit in front of their computer all the time and play on Facebook where they were allowed to lie because they aren’t 13 yet. Which leads me to this - why are you teaching your child to be dishonest? Giving them a good life lesson aren’t you? 

Chubby and lazy seem to go hand in hand I guess. Many children I know are not even required to clean their own room let alone any other chores. They are given what they want without any understanding of earning something. Gee, wonder how that will play out in the workplace.

Did I mention allowing your little girls to wear hooker clothes? I have seen more 12 and 13 year old breasts in public than I really care to. AND I have seen these same girls in Victoria’s Secret with their boyfriends. WTF!!!!! I don't want your 13 year old son peaking at me through the curtain crack, thank you very much.

Having said all that there are some good parents out there raising their children - the way I was raised. My business partners kids are polite, they are fit, they drink milk with their meals, they are in Sunday School every week, they are taught about giving instead of receiving, they have chores and I just bet they would know to put their hand over their heart when the Star Spangled Banner is played. Good job Andrea and Steve!

Go ahead and hype your kids up on soft drinks and junk food, teach them to lie, cheat and steal, drug them for one of their alphabet soup diagnosis, buy them hooker clothes so they feel "sexy" at 10 and see how all that works out for you when you get older and maybe need those same kids making decisions for you and your life. Good luck with that!

My rant is over and I will be back to posting about sex, drugs and rock & roll soon.
