Words of wisdom

A 74 year old male reported some family stress.

A grandson, who was in college, had recently been charged with a DUI and his father (my patients son) was reportedly beside himself and threatening to take his son out of college.

Me: How are you doing with everything?

Patient: Fine. He's a good kid. He's always been a good kid. He's never gotten into trouble before. I told my son that we should be thankful no one got hurt and I reminded him that both of us have driven after drinking in the past and gotten away with it. He did nothing that we didn't do at his age. He just got caught. I'm sure my grandson has learned his lesson. It's a real expensive lesson.
