An open letter to The Kid.
One of these days Mommy and daddy aren't going to be there to support you anymore and you are probably going to find out the hard way that when you have a job in the real world, people expect you to actually work for a paycheck, not just show up now and then.
You are going to have to learn to do the stuff that you don't want to do because it's your job and if you don't do it they will fire you.
That's what having a job is all about.
One of these days you are going to have to grow up and put on your big girl panties and take responsibility for your actions. Or lack thereof.
And one of these days you are going to discover that pissing off people who are older than you is a really really bad idea. Just because you are young and lift weights does not make you either invulnerable or immortal.
And I really hope you find all of this out before you get yourself or someone else killed.
And I really do hope you find all of this out somewhere else, because inside the fence you scare the hell out of me and I don't want to be anywhere near when life teaches you all of these lessons.
Sincerely, The Rev
