The Grail of Common Sense | Daily Quote (GR)


“Common sense is a motherfucker, when you use it.”
-An old guy I work with

An old guy I work with said this the other day. It came up after four phone calls in an effort to get a set of keys to move a vehicle from one house to another. When we finally located the person who had the keys there was a fifth phone call asking us if we were at the house where the vehicle was or at the other place. The old man said, “Now why would we be calling someone to get the keys to move this truck if we weren’t standing here beside the goddamn truck in the first place.” But that’s the way with older folks who have lost patience with the world and stupidity. They know that common sense is like the grail and quite the motherfucker when you use it.
