A friend of mine told me that she used to believe in common sense until one of her young summer workers put his hand where it wasn't supposed to go. Fortunately only a finger was lost and it was able to be re-attached later; but my friend’s philosophical belief in common sense was chopped off forever.
Self-employment runs in my family. My sister’s 17-year-old is spending her summer days working in the family cabinet-making business. She reluctantly changed into more suitable footwear before heading out the door this morning.
