You sow what you reap, so they say. And if you keep on doing what you're doing, well, you'll keep on getting what you get...(I said that!!!)

I set my watch 10 minutes slow in hope of getting late.

a boomerang needs to be thrown :)

the correct sentence (and probably the one yours is based of) might be actually life come and go like waves (alvin toffler, if I am not mistaken)

Yes, there is a way! Lose your mind, go completely nuts, that's when you will not be answerable to anyone or responsible for anything. :cool:

It's like everything you do, you're accountable for it, one way or another... and it comes back to u in the form of CONSEQUENCES!
Well, i guess i'm just disgruntled about life.. :mad: gruff

Pretty shocking that we can't just behave like utter knobs and not have to suffer the consequences . . .


Let's see . . . my neighbour has a great new car - wouldn't it be nice if I could just take it, prang it, trash other cars (and a few pedestrians), do wheelies on the lawn and bring it back to him in a shithouse condition and not have to worry about consequences?

Better yet, if everyone lived like that it would be = ANARCHY

Oh yeah Vaucluse....I'm dreaming now of things I'd do if there were no consequences.....

First I'd tell boring people in work to shut up, cos 'I'm so bored I'm almost asleep'..........

Then I'd maybe transfer all the company's funds into a Swiss Bank Account, in my name, of course.

Hmm, what else???????............Most of the stuff would be about telling the truth I guess..............it just goes to show how many porkies we tell in life to keep the ball rolling and not annoy other people.....Or perhaps it's just me and everyone else always does a George Washington?

Yes. Established. Everything you do, you are accountable for. Is this news to you? Here pick a cliche:

You reap what yous sew (thanks Bubbs)

What goes around comes around

You made your bed, now lie in it

Indeed . . . (but shouldn't it be 'sow'?)


Is this the first time your pretty points (snigger, snigger . . . feel like a naught boy now) have come to this conclusion, or was it the seventh lager that did the trick?

Of course: sow. Unless you are calling me a Sow?!?

I had to edit most of last night's posts. I'm working on a lot of big, big projects and am weary.
