Being a teen you want to try and make your own choices because you think you know it all. My dad was trying to give me some advice one day but I wanted to do things on my own. I wanted to quit my job and get a new one because the job I had I did not like at all. He told me to keep the job until I found a new one but I did not listen.
The next day I put in my two weeks notice. After the two weeks I was unemployed and could not manage to get a new job because of the economy. I regret not listening to what my dad had to say to me.
Another time I did not listen to my dad was when I was going dirt biking with all my friends. I had been riding my dirt bike the day before I was going to the track with everyone. My dad told me that I should take a drive up to the Honda dealer ship to get some spare spark plugs.
I told him I did not need to because I had just replaced my spark plug. He told me I better not foul that plug or I would be out of luck.
The next day I was at the track and about half way threw the day my bike died. I pulled the plug and sure enough it was fouled. Luckily the track had a little store and they had spark plugs there unfortunately they did not have the spark plug for my bike.
I could not ride for the rest of the day and I was very disappointed. I have decided that I should always listen to what they have to say before I make my own decision.
I have made some mistakes and those mistakes could have been avoided if I would just take my parents advice. I think you should always listen to your parents until you are out in the real world, this I believe.
