When I was a sophomore in college, I was counseling a very young freshman about the ways to decorate a dorm room.
“Some people hang a net from their ceiling and fill it with beer cans. But that’s really tacky.” (I don’t know what word I used to say “tacky.”)
Less than a month later, I passed by his room and saw just such a net hanging from his ceiling.
Somehow he missed the part about “really tacky.”
Moral of the story — listen to all of what someone tells you.
