There once was a young boy with a very bad temper. The boy’s father wanted to teach him a lesson, so he gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper he must hammer a nail into their wooden fence.
On the first day of this lesson, the little boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. He was really mad!
Over the course of the next few weeks, the little boy began to control his temper, so the number of nails that were hammered into the fence dramatically decreased.
It wasn’t long before the little boy discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.
Then, the day finally came when the little boy didn’t lose his temper even once, and he became so proud of himself, he couldn’t wait to tell his father.
Pleased, his father suggested that he now pull out one nail for each day that he could hold his temper.
Several weeks went by and the day finally came when the young boy was able to tell his father that all the nails were gone.
Very gently, the father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence.
“You have done very well, my son,” he smiled, “but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same.”
The little boy listened carefully as his father continued to speak.
“When you say things in anger, they leave permanent scars just like these. And no matter how many times you say you’re sorry, the wounds will still be there.”
The difference between high school and college is that in college, we expect that you will act in a respectful, responsible manner. Like an adult. In both levels of education there are rules for both “home” and “school.” If you don’t want to get in trouble, don’t break the rules. It’s a rather simple concept. And if you do get in trouble, you can not blame that on the person who happened to catch you, it could have been anyone (catching or getting caught. There’s this little thing called karma. It’s where people get what they rightfully deserve. If you continuously make the same mistakes over and over again, you deserve a good slice of karma. Another thing about college. That’s where the “bullying” should stop. If you want to call me fat, fine. I hope it makes you feel better. But you should know, it’s people like you who force people like Tyler Clementi, good, innocent people, to do things they wouldn’t have ever done without the influence of others. But go ahead, call me fat. I’ll take it as a compliment. People of heavier body weights tend to bring a lot of joy to others and tend to enjoy some of the wonderful things about life that “thin” people don’t. If my body weight helps you sleep at night, than I’d gladly eat an entire pie as a lullaby.
