Episode #12: Where's Bonanza, Dude?

And for the record, I say "Good for them". If a person feels he\she is worthy of 20K, then say so. In life, if a person wants a raise or promotion, then work hard to get it, AND also let it be known you are worthy of the benefits of having worked hard. Don't wait around for 10 years hoping some body throws you a bone.
Why not go in and plead your own case? Why sit back and say nothing going home with some kind of "Honor" of having worked hard, but empty handed, believing that by keeping quiet about your accomplishments and hard work, you're being a "Better person" for being silent. Who wants a life of quiet desperation. What a bunch of crap. I have a lot respect for any kid that stands up for himself and says "I have self worth". Go Jared!!!!

I thought that at first also. Then I realized that they will have the video tape for the rest of their lives. Plus, that monument cost a lot of money. I bet they are still going to put it there.

Actions speak much louder than words. (And whining digs you a deeper hole to get out of)

It just makes me role my eyes when I read comments that suggest that people think less of any kid who works hard and goes into the council and says "I worked hard for 37 days, I feel I am just as worthy as anyone else to have a gold star"
Big thumbs down on those who think less of any of these kids.

He hasn't always worked hard. He did drop tool and run to the arcade instead of waiting to complete his chores. I am a big Jared supporter - he is the son of a friend of mine - but must be honest in saying that other than being cute, intellectually beyond everyone in Bonanza City but Alex, and I am sure a funny guy, he has not been portrayed as a standout in the labor department.
Who also recalls he has a temper in toppling the potato girl's table...

When they first picked it I knew it would be trouble. Yeah, Jared went crazy over the arcade, along with 95% of the other kids.
Yeah...Jared had his moments. I think he was justified in being mad at the potato stand....she was selling their own food that belonged to everyone. Did he go about it wrong by knocking it over, yes. He's a very smart kid, but even smart kids can lose it.
JMHO and I value yours
