Sh*t My Dad Says

As we approach Father's Day on Sunday, I thought it only fitting to share some of the wisdom that my dad has shared with me over the years. Some legit, some non-legit...some relevant, some irrevelant.
  1. Chew with your mouth closed. OR Don't smack your food. (This turned into an OCD disorder...I know notice EVERYONE who smacks their food. And once I notice it, it sounds like they are doing it into a microphone.)
  2. Take your time and do it right the first time.
  3. Take initiative - don't wait for someone to ask you do something.
  4. Always keep your car clean - you never know who will need a ride. (He actually used to say 'What if you saw the President stranded on the side of the road? Would you let him ride in a nasty car?' Well, first, the President would never be hitchhiking, and second, if it is our current President that we are talking about...then, yes, he could ride in a nasty car.)
  5. Keep your elbows off the table.
  6. Being on time means you are late. (This one NEVER sunk in because I'm habitually late.)
  7. Always make your bed. (This one didn't quite take either...)
  8. Always keep your things 'squared away.' There is no excuse to not take care of your stuff.
  9. Always tell your brothers you love them. Family is the most important thing.
  10. Never argue with an idiot. They'll bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.
Happy Father's Day!
