Never assume just because someone seems to agree with you in person, that they still agree with you behind your back. Likewise that they'll keep a secret.

Don't sign anything that ties you legally to debt, on behalf of a family member who current or canm't at all, get themselves; they'll screw you, short of winning the lottery, and you'll be left holding the debt and interest. If you've got one of those rare families where everybody sits around a fire, hugs each other, and sings happy songs, you're probably exempt from this.

When your friends piss & moan about probably with a certain person and their political party, tell them you don't want to hear anymore until they've voted (and you wanna see that "I Voted" sticker), otherwise you're wasting your time.

When somebody tries to sell you something or get your signed for something (like a store credit card), just say, "No thanks" or "Leave me alone" right off the bat -- it makes things so much easier, plus their reaction can be fun.

Never assume the car in back of you is paying attention and looking ahead; always assume they're gonna hit you, maybe even at full speed. Watch you behind when stopping (stop in advance, not a full-on hault at the last second), and leave room to turn your car away to the side should they come barreling down on you. This has saved me twice (sadly not the first time).

Women lie. Constantly. They only claim men do more. Trust them as far as you can throw them.

If a potential person you might work for seems crazy and bi-polar, they are (just to what degree is the only unsolved mystery) -- do yourself a favor and move along.


Buy a random Bernstein score you've never heard, and skip the latest Tyler Bates effort.
You're welcome.


This one I speak on behalf of a friend for, who had this happen:
When having strangers in your house, even if part of somebody you know, lock up/hide all medications. You might find bottles emptied after they are gone.
(likewise money/valuables/jewelry)

As a general rule, keep all of your secrets to yourself. Confession may be good for the "soul", but it's lousy for the reputation. Never tell your best friend your deepest, darkest secrets, especially if your best friend is married/has a significant other because you can bet that their spouse will know your secret, too.

Do not ever speak to the press or other media. You will always either be misquoted or what you do say is printed out of context or they will simply make up the quote they want. Experience so dictates.

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and his wife will curse you for giving him an excuse to get out of the house on Saturdays.

When making a movie never put on the contract for the actor's actresses and crew people the hours they need to show up and the time they can leave. Just put in the time for them to show up.

Whenever you go on a trip, always bring ten dollars more than you think you'll need. It really makes a difference.

When waiting to enter a lane of traffic, go when YOU think it's safe to go, not when the person behind you honking their horn thinks it's safe.

Try moderation in life as much as you can. Don't over do anything. DIVERSITY is not only a spice of life it can save your life. By doing one thing too much, be it something you put in your body or otherwise, if they find out if was bad for you, your gone. But by only trying a little or a moderate amount of many things. Well , nothing probably will kill you.

PG Wodehouse said in a letter something about an interview article.

He said he didn't understand why authors refuse knighthoods.

He was quoted as saying he didn't understand why authors receive knighthoods.

Go with that famous statement, hope for the best expect the worst. That way you will never be disappointed with anything. I remember when I was younger I worked at a commission job, in which each week my salary was different , as one can understand when it comes to commission jobs. I always put in my head come payday the amount I might get will be on the low end of the scale. This way whatever the amount was I was happy because it was always more then I expected. Life hurts when you expect more and get less in life. Try your best, hope for the best but always protect yourself by expecting the worst.

Never loan money to friends or family. If you do, then view it as a gift and expect never to get repaid. Otherwise, it will more than likely ruin that relationship beyond repair.

Never, ever co-sign a loan with ANYONE for any reason. If they default, it's all on you and your credit. Or look at it this way: if someone has to have a co-signee to get a loan, then it's for a reason, and it's probably because their credit

Never open a joint bank and credit card account with your spouse/significant other. See above. Keep your accounts separate.

Never believe what a parent has to say about their children--especially if it's positive. Parents live in a state of denial and are the absolute worst judges of their own offspring.
