Fool me once, shame on you

I posted something similar on my blog awhile back.  Last night I was hanging out with a friend and she referenced it.  She said it made her think—maybe I was just mean.  Then on the way home (I was driving, and she lives on the way) I missed her turn.  I said, oh, I was just going to my house.  She said, of course you were, because you only think of yourself.  And then we laughed and laughed.

One of my students yesterday asked if I followed the Cardinals.  Evidently he knows the new manager because he lives next door to one of the coaches.  I told him I did but was really a Braves fan.  He looked at me incredulously.  I said, yes, really.  And then he made fun of me.  I posted that on twitter, and got this response.




And that too.  Fool me once, shame on you.  Fool me twice…wait, if I recall W said it best:

"There’s an old saying in Tennessee — I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can’t get fooled again." —


One thought on “Fool me once, shame on you”

  1. It always throws me a little when a friend references something I’ve blogged about when they haven’t commented on the post…not to mention having to be aware that real-life people (Aka my boss and coworkers) may be reading what I post…so no blogging about “sick” day activities. 🙂
