“You ain’t never gonna get it lest you ask for it.” — Aunt Sadie’s Ponderings

Aunt Sadie - Don't AskSo you ain’t never going to get that raise or promotion at work, new shotgun or even a kiss from ole aunt Sadie unless you ask for it first. People ain’t mind readers so you got to let them know. But just make sure that what you’re asking for is what you really want. Most nearly everything comes with some sort of consequence. A raise might be nice to help pay for a few more hot dogs, but they usually come with a lot more responsibility. Same with that promotion, it’s going to means less time for fishing. A new shotgun means you got to work longer hours to pay for it and the gift you better get your wife.

Remember folks, the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, because more than likely their septic tank is all backed up. Don’t forget about that kiss, it has consequences too. You might not ever go back to fishing.

Till next time,

Aunt Sadie

    Love this! I remember reading somewhere, “The grass is greener where you water it” and it really struck a chord. I think I like the thing about the septic tank better though.
