  • Checked My Son's Integrity Yesterday

    I picked my son up from school yesterday. As he was getting into the vehicle, he noticed I was finishing up a drink from McDonald's. As we were driving down the road, he asked if we could stop for him to get a drink at McDonald's. As we pulled into the McDonald's parking lot, I handed him my empty cup. I told him "Just change the lid and cover and you can save a dollar by refilling this cup." My son refused, saying "There's a sign there that says you can only refill your cup on the same visit. That would be like stealing." I told him "McDonald's makes a lot of money. They're not gonna miss one cup of soda. It's only a dollar." He said "Still stealing daddy, I'm not doing it. I'll spend my own money so I won't be a criminal." I told him "What about saving the environment, and being earth friendly?" He said "Maybe you can pay them a dollar and they'll let you reuse the cup. You'll still need to pay because that's the rules."

    I told him that I was very proud of him because he refused to do something that he thought was dishonest despite my best efforts to convince him that it was OK. He then reminded me of a time where I made a comment about a nasty looking man who was refilling a cup he dug out of the trash outside of the restaurant. He remembered how I spoke with the man (who appeared to be homeless) and pointed out the sign to him, even offering to buy him a drink cup. The man refused, got belligerent and was booted from the restaurant by the manager.

    Very proud of my 10 year old boy. He's quickly learning the difference between right and wrong. Sure hope he's able to resist peer pressure if ever faced with the choice of taking or not taking drugs & alcohol.
    Getting shot hurts! Don't under estimate the power of live ammo. A .22LR can kill you! I personally feel that it's best to avoid being shot by any caliber. Your vest may stop the bullet, but you'll still get a nice bruise or other injury to remember the experience.

    I will say that your son is more aware than I was at that age. I'm not a criminal or any of the sort, but there are companies out that there I don't care if they lose money. If my dad told me that, I would be like "okay" and just go do it because he told me to. Good job raising him right!

              Not only fries. Kid had a Quarter Pounder with cheese meal AND 2 McDouble sandwiches!
              Getting shot hurts! Don't under estimate the power of live ammo. A .22LR can kill you! I personally feel that it's best to avoid being shot by any caliber. Your vest may stop the bullet, but you'll still get a nice bruise or other injury to remember the experience.

                This boy found a cheat sheet for a test last year. He picked it up, and handed it to the teacher. The teacher busted the two students who were using it. The boy requested that the teacher give him another test. Teacher said the boy insisted because he didn't feel right since he saw some of the answers on the cheat sheet. Took the teacher nearly a half hour to convince him that the version of the test he had was different so as long as the answers he marked on his test were from his knowledge, he'd do OK. He didn't ace the test, but he didn't fail either. I found out about the whole story later (was on the road). He told me all about it.

                Don't think I was even half as honest as he is when I was 10 years old. I asked him why he felt the way he did about the test and finding the answer sheet. He told me that God was watching and he was afraid that God would tell me he was bad and he would get busted eventually. We had the discussion about his "conscience" about a year ago when another boy in his class stole money from his wallet. Ever since, he's been pretty honest.
