Listen to your elders

On a lovely summer day, a family of geese gathered in a pool outside of the current of the mighty Niagara River. Three young geese remained on the outside of the group cavorting as an elder goose honked a warning to them. But the three young Canada Geese continued to play ignoring the warnings of the elder.
In the wink of an eye, the three young geese found themselves caught in the current of the Niagara. They bobbed on the waves as they found themselves pulled along out of control. One found itself pulled under a wave.
All three managed to use their powerful wings to power themselves out of the waves in a panic. They were fortunate not to find themselves swept over the falls of Niagara.
And as the three geese worked their way back to the placid pool, the elder goose honked to the little group in rebuke. And if I did not know better, there was a distinct phrasing of, "I told you so" in the scolding remarks.
