55. Lessons Learned
When Mikey got home, he called Derrick. “Did you almost lose your law license?” he asked.
“Complete misunderstanding,” Derrick said. “This judge – he’s known for having a bug up his butt - got mad about some dates on court documents. Minor stuff blown way out of proportion.”
“Did you do something you weren’t allowed to?”
“Technically, yes. But it didn’t really matter, except to that judge.”
As Derrick explained, Mikey thought ‘He hasn’t learned his lesson yet.’ He listened to Derrick blame the judge, remembering how he’d blamed the groundhog, and thought, “Neither have I.”
Today I will learn a lesson from people who haven’t learned theirs.
