Lesson Learned

My dad was a truck driver for over 30 years. He never cussed when I was growing up.

After college, I was eager to have him see me as an adult. I can't remember the subject we were discussing, but feeling like an equal, I said the word 'shit'.

Dad looked stunned. Then quietly, he said, "You just had something in your mouth I would never put in my hand."
Lesson Learned.
