Thinking about it over at my iPhone blog:
As one gets older, mental hygiene becomes more important than ability or intelligence. Laziness is the chief vice of high aptitude.
I was at Burger King the other day, and grew irritated by how long it took to receive my cheeseburger. I had to walk away from the counter because I did not want the cashier to see my twisted face. Then I remembered that I got fired from Burger King 40 years ago. It was my first real job. I kept forgetting to put the fish in the fish fillet sandwiches.
