The Not So Grim Reapers - #6555
Don't wait a long time for discipline. When a lot of time has passed, the lesson will be forgotten. Explain the discipline; explain why it's wrong.

When you drive as many miles as we do, those little surprises out the window spice up the trip a bit; like the two municipal water tanks we saw as we sailed by a town on the Interstate recently.
