Fool Me Once
Da used to tell us to always do something good for folk if the opportunity should present itself. Be a gentleman, open doors, give up yer seat to a lady or someone older. "Always do a good turn if you can" were the words he used. And I have always tried to do that.
Sometimes though, a lad can be taken advantage of, and sometimes it takes other friends to point this out. You know what I mean, when you do a favour for someone so many times that eventually they expect you to do it all the time!
I've been told I can be too nice to some people. I don't mind that. But I DO mind being taken for a sucker!
I'll always hold true to my Da's teachings, but I am getting harder!
Some people say it's about time!
