Those Old-Time Values

By Aaron S. Robertson

Now, I can’t always name ‘em all off the top of my head, but I just know ‘em when I see ‘em. Those old-time values. Here are a few of ‘em:

1) Hard work

2) Truly understanding the value of hard work (see #1)

3) Decency

4) Paying your bills

5) Cleaning your plate (that’s why ol’ Aaron can afford to lose a few pounds, hehe)

6) Appreciating what you have

7) Using the local greasy spoon diner as a hub for community news, making new friends, keeping old friends, and getting a mighty-fine breakfast served with a little ol' fashioned TLC

8) Cleaning your plate at the local greasy spoon diner and tipping your servers at least 20% (see #6)

9) Drinking coffee throughout the day and night like it’s water, preferably black

10) Desiring to see your country return to being a manufacturing empire and once again supplying the world with heavy equipment and high-quality parts, instead of us just serving each other cups of coffee and pizzas.

11) Put down the fuckin’ cell phone, stop texting, and try connecting with another human being face-to-face.

There you have it. Those old-time values.

The only lives that matter are John Q. Lunchpail and Susie Q. Lunchpail, and they encompass every color, creed, sexual orientation, size, shape, accent, and racial and ethnic slur known to our country. John Q. Lunchpail and Susie Q. Lunchpail toil day in and day out to keep our country running. I'm striking it out on my own and creating a new hashtag, and I dare to boldly proclaim that #workinglivesmatter.


They're black cops and white NBA players. They're the stereotypical Jewish doctor and Irish laborer, and vice-versa! They're Muslim executives and Christian construction workers. They're straight and LGBTQ+. They're married with children, they're married without children, and they're childless bachelors and bachelorettes. They're single parents working hard and just trying to do right by their children, and they have jumbo-sized nuclear families. Perhaps they're retired now, or disabled, or just looking to keep busy, so they're working by volunteering - they're sharing their expertise, stories, talents, and good company with others. Perhaps they're still in their working prime and volunteering every moment that they're not at their paying jobs, simply because they love helping others and have a vision for this world. They're stay-at-home parents, working hard to ensure their children grow up right. They're working in comfortable offices and in loud and oily factories. They're helping those that genuinely can't help themselves.


Work, in all its forms, whether for monetary compensation or not, unites us all, lifts us up, cleanses our souls, and will continue to drive our country and our world forward. #workinglivesmatter .
