    The son went to the jewelry story, came back to his father, and said; "They offered $150.00 because it's so old."
    The father said; “Go to the pawn shop."
    The son went to the pawn shop, came back to his father, and said; "The pawn shop offered $10.00 because it looks so worn."
    The father asked his son to go to the museum and show them the watch.
    He went to the museum, came back, and said to his father; “The curator offered $500,000.00 for this very rare piece to be included in their precious antique collections."
    The father said; “I wanted to let you know that the right place values you in the right way. Don't find yourself in the wrong place and get angry if you are not valued. Those that know your value are those who appreciate you, don't stay in a place where nobody sees your value."
    Know your worth.
    That goes double for your "friends," how much they value you. If they constantly say to you, "So and so is an asshole,..., that other person is a jerk, ..." then you know he is saying the same thing about you to other people.

    Have we reached the ultimate stage of absurdity where some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, while other people are not held responsible for what they themselves are doing today?
