local skate park Virtually no historical figures or time travel

00:22

involved anyway While the two have plenty in common their

00:25

home lives are the furthest thing from similar bill has

00:28

parental support coming out of his ears His mother and

00:31

father have always attended every little league game every piano

00:34

recital so they spend tons of time with him at

00:36

home both helping him with his homework and well just

00:39

hanging They love into pieces and they make sure he

00:41

knows it And man are they proud of him even

00:43

when he doesn't do anything all that special You should

00:46

have seen the reaction he got when he successfully tied

00:48

his shoe laces for the hundredth time But ted oh

00:51

poor ted Ted did not win the parental lottery if

00:55

it came home one day to tell mom and pop

00:57

that he was just presented with the nobel prize for

00:59

medicine they'd probably give him a quick that's nice kid

01:02

and then turned back to their reality programming Needless to

01:05

say ted self esteem is not on overdrive he's been

01:08

given the impression his entire life that he's basically worthless

01:12

you know inconvenience so he believes it But every once

01:15

in a while despite the complete lack of support ted

01:17

knocks it out of the park anyway like last tuesday

01:19

when he posted the lowest score in the golf team

01:21

resulting in a team win Obviously the accomplishment went largely

01:25

unacknowledged by most of his classmates since it was just

01:28

you know golf and clearly he wasn't going to receive

01:31

any accolades from these two So ted look to the

01:33

one person who really cared about him to provide him

01:36

with a pat on the back He so desperately craved

01:39

his best bud phil but feel let him down give

01:42

him a quick nice work and then invited him downstairs

01:44

so he gets you off his newest xbox game more

01:46

than anything his parents had ever done to him This

01:49

crush ted at least with mom and dad he'd been

01:51

used to it expected it but what was bill's deal

01:54

Bills deal was that he didn't realise that it was

01:56

his place to be there for his friend in quite

02:00

that way For bill he'd always gotten so much encouragement

02:03

congratulations from his family that he just sort of have

02:05

assumed now that's the way it works for everybody what

02:08

made it even worse was that Well bill was impressed

02:10

by ted's golfing prowess proud of him even but he

02:13

didn't say so because you know they're guys and guys

02:16

don't go overboard on the distribution of warm fuzzies So

02:19

ted spiraled into a deep depression which negatively affected his

02:22

golf game and a school work and even is tried

02:25

and true friendship with bill By the time bill had

02:27

finally realised what itwas the devastated ted so greatly to

02:31

were barely speaking and so faced with the alternative of

02:33

a ted lis existence phil got over himself and told

02:36

ted just how proud of his buddy he really wass

02:39

well ted's face lit up like someone had just completed

02:41

an electoral circuits he started killing it in his studies

02:45

added fifteen yards to his drive and gave his parents

02:47

a couple of hugs when he got home Not that

02:49

they even noticed the private respect of one's peers can

02:52

be a powerful thing After all who understands the journey

02:55

were on better than those who are on that same

02:57

journey with us Well lesson learned Bill would never again

03:00

keep his mouth shut when it was feeling pride in

03:02

his friend In fact sometimes he even got a little

03:05

too sappy Come on take it down a notch bill 00:03:08.08 --> [endTime] There are girls watching
