It’s funny to listen to people brag about how ‘smart’ or ‘cool’ they are. It’s especially funny when the person is a bum.
Obviously, people have different ideas of what ‘smart’ and ‘cool’ are. My idea of being smart is taking responsibility for yourself, your children, etc. Some people think taking advantage of people, cheating the government, and getting away with anything they can is smart. The problem is, sooner or later, the reality of life has a way of coming back to bite you in the ass and say “not so fast”.
Lying to yourself about how smart or cool you are doesn’t change reality. You may truly believe that you are the smartest and coolest person in the world. Just watch out for that reality check that is waiting for you just around the corner.
