When cooking, put it on the floor beside the stove. Or put the Ssscat mat on there with the stove off until they get the idea that they don't want to go there. They aren't too old to train as long as they're breathing. StG I love cats, but in my household, they are trained within limits to suit humans. After all, who is the dominant creature in this shitpile we call home, eh? No cats of mine are allowed on counters or tables, ever.

And while I won't leave a chicken carcass on the counter to tempt them, they must know their place, and that's not on the table. If they step on the stove and get a little scorched, problem solved. In return, they get the coziest spots in the world to curl up in, just lower down. Leave the pans on the burner and fill them with water. Reply Bookmarks. Thread Tools Show Printable Version.

The cat, having sat upon a hot stove lid, will not sit upon a hot stove lid again. But he won't sit upon a cold stove lid, either. Moonlitherial Guest. Join Date: Mar Posts: 4, Find all posts by Moonlitherial.

They want to enjoy life and are pretty clear what they want to do; or make it seem so. When asked about dropping out or getting some experience before starting a venture, they rattle off about how Bill Gates started Microsoft at 19, the same age when Mark Zuckerberg started Facebook.
They all aspire to become rich and may be even famous. When I discuss investing with those in their 20s, they frown at me. The reason, many have seen their elder siblings or parents lose money in the stock markets. They feel investing in stock markets is risky and that people lose money. I want to highlight that in both cases—investing and starting a venture—there seems to be expectations which are unrealistic and are often romanticised.
And, those who have experience of having failed in either or both the activities fear and distrust them both completely. Of course, it is one thing to be cautious and another to be ignorant.
Some are so out of reality when it comes to investing that I am unimpressed by their basic lack of financial understanding. Even among the higher educated young adults, the level of confusion when it comes to saving and investing is perplexing. At one end, they demonstrate such high degree of understanding and ease of adapting to changes around them in all walks of life, but when it comes to managing money, they get into a shell.
The consequence of inaction is severe, because people now have to take so much more responsibility for their financial lives. The ignorance only compounds, as the less they understand, the more daunting investing seems.
