Rules of Life

Rules of Life

  RULE 1: Life is not fair; get used to it.
  RULE 2: The world won't care about your self- esteem.  The world will expect
  you to accomplish
  something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.
  RULE 3: You will NOT make 40 thousand dollars a year right out of high
  school. You won't be a vice
  president with a car phone, until you earn both.
  RULE 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.  He
  doesn't have tenure.
  RULE 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had
  a different word for
  burger flipping; they called it opportunity.
  RULE 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about
  your mistakes, learn from them.
  RULE 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are
  now. They got that way
  from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk
  about how cool you are.  So
  before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parents'
  generation, try delousing the closet in
  your own room.
  RULE 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life has
  not.  In some schools they have abolished failing grades; they'll give you
  as many times as you want to get the right answer.  This doesn't bear the
  slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.
  RULE 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and
  very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself.  Do that on
  your own time.
  RULE 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to
  leave the coffee shop and go to
  RULE 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.
