    There are worse things in life!!!! Keep reading

    A father passing by his son's bedroom, was astonished to see the bed was nicely made, and everything was picked up. Then, he saw an envelope,propped up prominently on the pillow. It was addressed, "Dad." With the worst premonition, he opened the envelope and read the letter, with trembling hands.

    Dear Dad:

    It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you. I had to elope
    with my new girlfriend, because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mum
    and you.
    I've been finding real passion with Stacy, and she is so nice, but I
    knew you would not approve of her, because of all her piercing,
    tattoos, her tight Motorcycle clothes, and because she is so
    much older than I am.
    But it's not only the passion, Dad.
    She's pregnant. Stacy said that we will be very happy.
    She owns a caravan in the bush, and has a stack of firewood for the
    whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children.
    Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn't really hurt anyone.
    We'll be growing it for ourselves, and trading it with the other people
    in our area, for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want. In the meantime,
    we'll pray that science will find a cure for AIDS, so Stacy can get
    She sure deserves it! Don't worry Dad, I’m 15 now, and
    I now know how to take care of myself.
    Someday, I'm sure we'll be back to visit, so you can get to know your many grandchildren.
    your son, John.

    Dad, none of the above is true.
    I'm over at Tommy's house.
    I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than the
    school report that's on my desk.
    I love you!
    Call when it is safe for me to come home.

    it's good to reminded to have a sense of proportion - what's important and what to be more philosophical about:)

    I've seen real estate agents use this technique when I was being shown properties; they would show you a few crappy houses first (dirty, dark and dismal) that didn't suit your requirements and then...the last one would be this lovely clean, bright house that generally fit your check list. It may not be the perfect property, however, compared with the previous ones, it seemed much better. I sometimes wondered if they specifically kept a few of these old houses just for this purpose.:rolleyes:
