THIRTEEN THINGS I KNOW FOR SURE!



1. You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling reason why we observe daylight-savings time.

2. You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment.

3. The most powerful force in the universe is gossip.

4. The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background,is that, deep down inside, we ALL believe that we are above-average drivers.

5. There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

7. People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them.

8. If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be "meetings."

9. The main accomplishment of almost all organized protests is to annoy people who are not in them.

10. You should not confuse your career with your life.

11. A person, who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person.

12. No matter what happens, somebody will find a way to take it too seriously.

13. Your friends love you, anyway.

"A person, who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person." - I can't stand people like that.

What a lovely list.

I so agree with #2. I've experienced that. Almost made me cry. :-)

I tried to comment but after I typed everything blogger wouldn't respond. Sigh.
Well I like David Barry. He makes good sense to me.

Dragon-I agree, if you're not nice to service people, you're not going to be nice when I need you.

Lizza-I actually did this! And she was my boss too!

Sarala-thanks for the effort anyway!
