I'll second that!

And anyone that uses a pen and discovers it's empty, then puts it BACK, needs to be flogged.

Be careful with that one. A friend of mine worked at a Pizza Hut and when a customer said this, he made a PERFECT pizza with one little addition. A layer of light machine oil under the sauce. toothy

When friends ask what my labor rate is, then want 40% off.

This just happened once again. After I told the guy last week I really try to not work for friends. ( Old addage? )

I feel like saying, OK Joe, I'll give you 40% off, as soon as I get 40% off at the gas pump. $2.65/$2.19

I'll gladly give you 40% off, when I get 40% off a loaf of factory bread at the supermarket. $3.99/$2.39

Friends are friends, business is business. If you want to keep your friends, don't do business with them any different than anyone else. Not only do they want 40% off, but then they expect a lifetime warrenty.

Drive right, pass left...period.

Just because you put stick-on hood scoops on your half ton truck doesn't mean you can pull a 10,000 lb camper 75 MPH in the left lane. Get a truck sized for the load, and drive at a speed that allows you to stay between the lines.

It takes more than a five minute tutorial to know how to drive a 35' motorhome. Want a diesel with air brakes-you should need a CDEL.

Don't buy you kids a fourwheeler or dirtbike and expect them to have free range of the local farm fields. If you don't want the farmer driving on your lawn with a 20 ton tractor, don't let the kids drive in the fields.
