My dad is 77 years old. He gets up every morning at 6/630, and works his butt off. He's always been self employed so he might be on his tractor all day or up the road helping a neighbor build a shed, either way he will be out working PERIOD. Thats the kind of man he is. His generation wasnt given an option, you get your ass to work come hell or highwater. "disabled" referred to someone physically incapable of doing anything. (As in quadrapalegic being fed by a tube disabled). The whole "Excruciating pain and PTSD from when I stubbed my pinky toe 2 years ago make it impossible for me to work" type of bullshit wouldnt fly back then. Sadly my dad is part of a dying breed...the ethics of his time are totally foreign to the current generation.

Eta: Since this has turned into a personal crusade for many of you to defend yourself and your choices, let me clarify a few things. "Disabled" is not a term to be used lightly, having social anxiety is not a disability for example. Work ethic in this society is NOT what it use to be plain and simple. It is all too easy for ANYBODY to cry "disability" and not work, nobody's going to say a damn word about it though because it's not PC to say anything. How about you be mad at THOSE people? The ones who use their illness or "condition" as a crutch so they dont have to work. Yes it happens, like it or not

i jammed my pinky toe so bad that seven years later, it was still tender. even after it stopped hurting, i was so used to it hurting that i would treat it very gingerly.

the nail still grows in all gross and thick.

want to see a picture??


edit - i put a picture up on pg 20 for all the weirdos wanting to see it. you guys are gross! ;p
