I’m not buying the “they’re young” excuse. When I was the same age as Goodwin and Poythress, I was in the Army. When I screwed up or didn’t give effort or when I didn’t learn to do things correctly, NCOs got in my ass.
They didn’t tell me; “Dave, it’s ok. You’re young. You’ll learn over time. Here, have an ice cream.”
They got in my ass. All up one side and down the other. They brought pain. They worked me from sun up to sun down.
There was no “youth” excuse.
This isn’t high school anymore. This is life.
Suck it up and get your shit together OR fail. It’s all up to them.
Excuse me if I don’t feel sorry for these spoiled “kids.”
