Stupid Is As Stupid Does

Hello everybody. This is something that I think everybody knows is a problem.

When you have your grandchildren come over and visit, before they really start wanting to play, or talk and say what they’ve been doing, they like to get on their devices.

Now, I have a 13 year old granddaughter. She’s a real techie. She knows a lot more than her old grandfather. We’re guilty too, so maybe we should set an example, you know, Facebook and Wikipedia and internet and emails. I mean everybody is always doing things. But you have to set that aside.

She likes to play chess, do things, communicate together verbally - communicate more verbally.

And she does. She does like to talk. Again, these devices are a problem, and we’re all guilty, and we should consider trying to work it out and be more personable, more communicative, and less texting, and less looking at things on the internet, which maybe you shouldn’t be looking at with a young child.

I’ve seen one thing where kids are millionaires.

She says that they’re rich kids, and jumping on a trampoline, and she says they got lots of money. So I said, well that not a way to make money. She may figure it out and make more money than I ever made.

But that’s not the way to make money, doing stupid things. Apparently doing stupid things are very big on the internet.

As Forest Gump says, “Stupid is as stupid does.”
