I strongly disagree with Chad P. an "The Phone Call" when he say's "Were exactly alike;just two lying bastards . Like father like son" .I truely believe that the boy is not like his father. He is his own person. Just because his father was a bum, doesnt mean he will turn out to be one . I can really relate to this article because my mom and I are the the same way. I dread talking to her everytime the phone rings. My mom an I never had a strong relationship,but I still had to forgive her. because if I went through life keeping that anger with me , it would tear me up on the inside. All an all, thank you Chad for reminding me that you are your own person, an your never just like your parent.
