"In high school, as part of one of my classes, they brought in a lady who worked HR for some recruiting firm for a few days to teach us how to do resumes and cover letters and such.

She told us even if a place has the option to apply online, always go in person and pick up an application.

No one takes online applications seriously."

 

"Don’t forget to print out your directions from MapQuest before you leave."

"My Dad told me once, “Son, you shouldn’t schedule a single vacation day the first year of your job. It shows you’re committed.”"

 

"Buy Yahoo stock."

"You need to memorize this cause you won’t have the info accessible later."

 

"Getting a diploma will secure your life."

 

"You’re searching for a soulmate on the internet? Lord, you must be insane."

 

"To look after your phone battery, you should let it go all the way down to 0% and then charge fully to 100%."

 

"Get an ARM loan on your house! Values go up like 10-20% each year and by the time the load adjusts, flip that house for a sweet profit!"

 

"Stay at the same company for long periods – they show no loyalty or keep up in pay rises. If you want a pay increase and promotion best to swap companies every 1-3 years."

 

"When you dial collect on the payphone, just say where you are, what time you need a ride, then hang up so as not to get charged."

 

"I remember when my Dad told me as a teenager to never be the one to pursue a guy (because I’m a woman).

Maybe that was to keep me safe in my youth, but I’ve since come to realize that most of the dudes who are worth being with are either shy or oblivious, and I have no choice but to make the first move."

 

"Be loyal to your employer, because they will be loyal to you."

 

"“Everyone needs a college degree.”

Trade school is absolutely the way to go for some people, myself included. And I did both."

 

"20 years ago: Don’t meet up with people you met on the internet and don’t get in cars with strangers.

Today: Get into the car with a stranger that you’ve summoned to your house using the internet."

 

"Get into teaching. You get summers off and good benefits …"

 

"“You can rest when you are dead.”

In my opinion the “grind” culture is harmful and leads to a lot of physical and mental Illness. Stress-induced illnesses have never been as bad as it is right now. Burnouts have never been as high as they are now. Mental health is plummeting.

I understand that in some countries you have no choice but to grind to survive, but in developed countries I do not think society should encourage that mentality. Stress is a disease and this society is sick."

 

"You won’t always have a calculator in your pocket!"

 

"Putting your credit card information on the internet to buy things is dangerous."

 

“You’ll always need a set of Encyclopedias.”

 

“If boys are mean to you, it’s because they like you.”

 

“If your TV isn’t working, try hitting it.”

 

"“High school is some of the best years of your life.”

Yeah, I might have believed that bullsh#t back then, but having lived an actual life between then and now, high school was nowhere near my best years!"

 

“If she says no, just be persistent! You’ll wear her down eventually.”

#16 absolutely do NOT become a teacher. LONG hours, horrible paperwork, (some) cr#ppy parents, very little benefits anymore, and the pay is $h#t. Otherwise it's fine

#19 Still true today. I've had to replace my card a couple of times because someone taking the orders online at a restaurant, or has access to them, stole my information and used it. Lesson learned, never select the option "Remember card for future visits."

#19 YES still true today. Card has been stolen from Amazon, Facebook/instagram, Ebay, and a random sticker purchasing site, all since January. Replace card often, and audit card accounts!

Mom always says: Women should live at home until the day they are married. Gave us nightmare guilt trips when we could no longer live with her horrible nightmare life, and our divorced Dad didn't want us at his place once we hit 18.
