This is written by a friend of mine who puts it better than I ever could
"i am SO SICK AND TIRED of people wanting me to take their nephews, their brothers, their cousins, their bro-in-laws, their grandsons, their friends, their WHOEVER!!! off their hands so that i can drag them around for the rest of my life to give them the "kick in the pants they need" (yes. it has been told to me in exactly those words). I have NOT worked my entire life to be where i am in order to pull and kick and shove and force and bribe and WHATEVER, some man around for the rest of eternity."
