Give one an inch and they will take a mile…don’t pay no mind and they will get out of line. This behavior would easily fit children, but sadly, I am talking about adults.
I can put my Jeep in cruise at the speed limit on any Interstate and be the slowest on the road. Adults take a 5 mile over tolerance and add another 5 or 10 to it.
When no one is looking, adults will get away with what they can. Children learn from the examples adults display with their behavior. Actions speak and teach louder than words. Given an inch, they will take a mile…adults acting like children.
