You Can’t Teach Common Sense

Here is a warning on my daughter’s kiddie pool. Keep in mind that the “deep end” of the pool holds about 2 inches of water!

I know at times that warnings are good and much-needed (I personally know someone who burned himself by ironing his clothes while wearing them!), but the simple fact is that you can’t hardly teach a person common sense.

If someone thinks it’s a good idea to dive into 2 to 3 inches of water, then what words could a person possibly use to keep them from doing it??? EA

The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, But he who heeds counsel is wise.” (Proverbs 12:15) “Understanding is a wellspring of life to him who has it. But the correction of fools is folly….There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.” (Proverbs 16:22, 25)
