Wisdom #3

A High School Teacher’s List of Wisest Words:

Don’t make a scene.

When giving a thank you speech, short and sweet is best.

Know when to ignore the camera.

Never gloat.

Invest in good luggage.

Make time for your mom on your birthday. It’s her special day, too.

When opening presents, no one likes a good guesser.

Sympathy is a crutch, never fake a limp.

Give credit. Take blame.

Suck it up every now and again.

Never be the last one in the pool.

Don’t stare.

Address everyone that carries a firearm professionally.

Stand up to bullies. You’ll only have to do it once.

If you’ve made your point, stop talking.

Admit it when you’re wrong.

If you offer to help don’t quit until the job is done.

Look people in the eye when you thank them.

Thank the bus driver.

Never answer the phone at the dinner table.

  1. My mother's birthday is 2 days before mine. She went into labor on her birthday. I was her first baby. I was a really big baby at just uner 10 pounds. Which means our birthdays are a really good opportunity for her to remind me of all the pain she endured because she loves me so much. :D

    big hugs honey xoxo

  2. Barb's comment made me laugh. These are definitely lessons everyone needs to know, but parents aren't teaching them to their chitlins any more. And teachers really don't have enough time to teach values as well as curriculum. Bugger.

    Big hugs, honey...

  4. " Admit it when you’re wrong. ", I do because it seems that I'm wrong all the time to my daughter and sometimes with my wife. I guess it's something to do being a MAN. Ha,ha,ha.
    Have a wonderful Saturday Sandee. See ya.

  8. Nobody answers the phone at dinner time anymore. It's usually a telemarketer or a crook who wants your vote.

  12. Thank the bus driver, the wait staff, the bus boy, the janitor/housekeeper, any person on the bottom of the totem pole who actually supports and keeps the pole upright. They take the load and get little credit.
