Title: Diaper Fever
When I completed my Masters Degree in Tax Law, my parents each began to ask me tax questions about their separate tax positions.
My knowledge was fresh and current … and I proudly formulated my answers with great precision and clarity …
Not only answering the questions they asked
But, demonstrating exactly what those answers Meant,
and Precisely how their tax was affected.
But, they never believed anything I told them …
and continued to mail me sales brochures, simplistically inaccurate magazine articles, “tip of the iceberg” newsletters and brokerage house sales letters on
AS IF TO TEACH ME
What I’d just taken a Masters Degree in!
This went on until External situations seemed to prove my expertise to them …
until I began to earn money, publish articles in Bar Journals, teach Seminars for money, etc.
It seemed to have to do with their remembering I had once been their little boy …
and that they never could believe that he,
who used to mess in his diapers,
had learned more on some subjects than they.
