George tosses opportunities like an infant tosses food then cries for more. Parents are generally patient. After a mild paddling or time-out, they offer clean food and try again. Most children know what to do.
Unlike most children George is the kind of guy who keeps tossing nourishment expecting the sun to rise tomorrow since it’s been doing that for the past sixty years.
Patience keeps trying, even with the likes of George, but not forever. George doesn’t know it, but he will be offered one last year to waste.
