Musing on Universal Truth

peter kay SOL.jpgPeter Kays list of 35 universal truths has been circulating the web for a few years but it still makes me laugh ‘cos of it’s well observed shared experiences. May favourites are:
Triangular sandwiches taste better than square ones.
Despite constant warning, you have never met anybody who has had their arm broken by a swan
One of the most awkward things that can happen in a pub is when your pint-to-toilet cycle gets synchronised with a complete stranger.
You’ve never quite sure whether it’s ok to eat green crisps.
Rummaging in an overgrown garden will always turn up a bouncy ball.
Everyone always remembers the day a dog ran into your school.

Anyway, re-encountering this list this morning made me wonder about ther universal truths of youth work. What generalisations would resonate with nearly everyone’s shared experience of youth work? This is what I shall be pondering today when the conference I am at is running beyond my attention span BUT I’d love your ideas ………
