Here’s another way of looking the situation:

  1. 1. Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me either. Just pretty much leave me the heck alone.
  2. 2. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt and a leaky tire.
  3. 3. Don’t be irreplaceable. If you can’t be replaced, you can’t be promoted.
  4. 4. If you think nobody cares if you’re alive, just miss a couple of car payments.
  5. 5. If at first you don’t succeed, skydiving is not for you.
  6. 6. If you lend someone $20 and you never see that person again, it was probably worth it.
  7. 7. Duct tape is like ‘The Force.’ It has a light side and a dark side, and holds the universe together.
  8. 8. Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.
  9. 9. If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.
  10. 10. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back into your pocket.
  11. 11. Experience is something you don’t get until just after you need it.
  12. 12. Never miss a good chance to shut up.
  13. 13. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

    Great TT! These are hilarious. Another favorite of mine is “Never raise your hands to your children. It leaves your midsection unprotected.”
