Advice.

I came home and overheard the man giving this advice to his son:

"Well, you don't really have the right to look at somebody if they look like they might stab you."

Heh. Solid.

Actually, I'm pretty sure that I saw the guy that he's talking about outside of the grocery store today. With security trailing him.

I think that is really wise advice!!! But a bit scary.

Penelope Bianchi said...

Sorry! Does that make any sense at all?

I think it is a test to see if anyone who reads this blog has a functioning brain.....when the day is done.

Nothing about this sentence makes sense. Does It?

This is wise advice? How so?

Yikes!

(perhaps what would make sense is)....."don't stare at a person who has a knife and might stab you!" That makes sense. (Get the hell out of there!)

However; that is not what this says.

When my 50ish brothers were both small boys my ex-Navy father said "Never get a tattoo: the police will always be able to identify you". Which completely terrified them. Which was probably the idea.

So did that make you feel...stabby?

I would have given the kid the stink eye...just because. :)

Fair statement.

the man's got a point. avoidance is an acceptable tactic.

Were truer words ever spoken? Just keep your eyes down and keep walking. With definately NO muttering under your breath. Unless of course you're a girl and you think he's following you, and then you stop and look that mother fucker straight in the eye.

I'd love to hear the story behind this. It's sound advice. Do they teach that in parenting books now?

reclamationdesign@yahoo.com said...

Yes. Listen to your parents. Excellent.

Either that or be his punk.

bad advice. you really should look, but definitely not stare, in this situation. an discreetly keep your distance.

worse judgement. allowing children to even get in this position is pretty silly.

This sounds like advice from this guy on Twitter. He posts stuff his 79 year old father says, and it is all hilarious and right on. At Twitter.com it is "Shit my dad says"

That's insane. Taken out of context, at least.

Hopefully this wasn't post-stabbing advice.
