    Obituary to & Mourning The Death of Common Sense

    An Obituary printed in the London Times.
    Interesting and sadly true.

    'Today we mourn the passing of a beloved
    old friend, 'Common Sense', who has been
    with us for many years. No one knows for
    sure how old he was, since his birth records
    were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
    He will be remembered as having cultivated
    such valuable lessons as:

    Knowing when to come in out of the rain;
    why the early bird gets the worm; Life isn't
    always fair; and maybe it was my fault.

    Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial
    policies (don't spend more than you can earn)
    and reliable strategies (adults, not children,
    are in charge).

    His health began to deteriorate rapidly when
    well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were
    set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged
    with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate;
    teens suspended from school for using mouth
    wash after lunch; and a teacher fired for
    reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened
    his condition.

    Common Sense lost ground when parents
    attacked teachers for doing the job that they
    themselves had failed to do in disciplining
    their unruly children.

    It declined even further when schools were
    required to get parental consent to administer
    sun lotion or an Aspirin to a student; but could
    not inform parents when a student became
    pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

    Common Sense lost the will to live as the
    churches became businesses; and criminals
    received better treatment than their victims.

    Common Sense took a beating when you
    couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your
    own home and the burglar could sue you
    for assault.

    Common Sense finally gave up the will to live,
    after a woman failed to realise that a steaming
    cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her
    lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement .

    Common Sense was preceded in death, by his
    parents, Truth and Trust. His wife, Discretion,
    his daughter, Responsibility, his son, Reason.

    He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers;
    I Know My Rights; I Want It Now; Someone Else
    Is To Blame; I'm A Victim.

    Not many attended his funeral because so few
    realised he was gone.
    If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join
    the majority and do nothing.

    ...................SAD but TRUE

    I wholeheartedly agree re this common sense issue, and regarding GB, but I've also lived abroad and came back. You realise other countries are the same, are well on the road to being the same or else they are worse. Maybe they have their own issues in a different way. Short of living on a desert island with a pile of cold Stellas, having a harem and access to the internet I doubt many people can be truly happy wherever they are! To be honest we lament many things from the past and I think the world is crazy now but there were also many crazy things and unfairness etc. from the past that we forget about.

    and yet you post decrying avon moving jobs to india. maybe you should go and work in a call centre in india if its so bad over here. literally nobody is stopping you.

    all this stuff gets blown out of proportion, yeah you'l have one example every few days in the papers which seem to show the decline of commom sense or the demise of the country but what you don't see is the millions upon millions of examples everyday which show that this is still a pretty decent country and the vast majority of its residents aren't knife weilding drug addled benefit cheats who sue themselves when they stubb their toe on bathroom door.

    its just a media driven over reaction.
