Never insult someone who is going to prepare your food or has access to your data.
The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.
Get everything in writing, even if you think you don’t need it. An email, a text message, something in case things don’t go as planned. Has saved me countless times and burned me by not having it.
Don’t smoke. Don’t even start.
Befriend the IT team at work.
If you see a bathroom in your dream, don’t use it.
The best advice I ever got was from a Veterinarian when I brought him a newly adopted old dog with many health issues: “I will help you prolong his life, I will NOT help you prolong his death.” Words to live by when you have pets and have to face “the decision”.
From domestic abusers to supposed experts to politicians. If someone tells you not to seek out another’s opinion, they’re lying to you.
If you love someone, tell them. Friends, family, coworker. It doesn’t matter. This may be the last time you talk to them.
If a kid ever hands you a banana, you answer it like a telephone.
