Despite having an upper-middle class type of wealth, he’s never understood how kids are.
In high school, he told me to touch an electric fence and said something like, “Yeah, you shouldn’t cause that would make you a dumbass!”.
Well!! That’s the point. You don’t think Jim Belushi, Jim Carey, and Chris Farley didn’t know what they were doing? Kids do that stuff because it’s comedy – because it makes me people laugh. They’re not retarded.
His misunderstanding of human behavior is way beyond that. It’s a source of why there is so much conflict in my family.
