Everyone hates being used. It is really an unkind thing to do to anyone. In many of the shows over the years, you will see boys and girls using each other to gain something in school. For example, if a boy is on the voting committee for cheerleaders, a girl may start being overly friendly to him. There was an episode in the “Brady Bunch” where Greg was part of a committee. The difficult part was that his sister was also trying out for the cheerleading squad. Greg was flattered that the girl was so interested in him. However, when the voting day arrived, he sided with the other members and didn’t vote for his sister or the friendly girl. His sister understood, but the friendly girl did not and wanted nothing further to do with him. That was when he figured out he had been used. There was an episode on “McBride” in which a woman was working her way to the top by being overly friendly to anyone who would promote her. I thought it was awful. In life, people do use others in a variety of ways. In the legal business, people constantly want free advice. Whatever made their work time more valuable than anyone else’s, I will never understand. Unfortunately, this is true in all businesses. The trouble is that it is not only females but males as well. The men use their positions of power to obtain personal favors that are wrong but at least for the present illegal everywhere. In the Good Gus series, no one was ever used. It was simply just another way to give positive examples to the young reader. The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
