    Never comment on a woman's mustache, no matter how epic it is.

    Unless you are the one who caused the condition or know for a certainty who did, never ask a woman when the baby is due.

    If you can't afford to give it away, you can't afford to loan it out.

    If you can't afford to buy one, you can't afford to borrow one.

    Loaning money to a friend may be the cheapest lesson ever.

    Never comment on a woman’s butt, weight, age, or pregnancy status.

    Why not? Literally the place you’re least likely to walk away with piss particles on you.

    There is something wonderful about a place where you can drink beer and expel said beer all in the same place. Sometimes I even rub soap on myself. Genius!

    You don’t realize how disgusting urinals are until you use one while wearing shorts and sandals.

    And all the pee on the floors. It’s why even where there are urinals, I’ll try and go to a stall. Sometimes it’s better.

    When I was younger I just stood back a few extra feet. So sorry about that over spray.



    When I was in Jr High there was a kid that would pull his pants and underwear all the way down to his ankles when he used the urinal.

    He was made fun of for it - after a few weeks he figured it out. With as much pee that was on the floor around a Jr High urinal it was pretty stupid. What did he think his zipper was for?

    Now that I have a 3.5 year old grandson - who has been potty trained / accident free for a few months now - I think I understand it -

    That is the way 3 and 4 year old boys do it - this kid just never changed over to using his zipper.

    I take some credit for getting my grandson potty trained - come make bubbles with grandpa - and since I pee every 30 minutes (I drink a lot of coffee) it helped make it fun.

    One of life's milestones that is under appreciated - when kids can just handle their own bathroom duties.

    Hmmmmm....... The One Serious Life Lesson...... I'd have to say it's that you can never fully trust anyone.

    Do not fully count on someone else. You can count on only yourself.

    Dead on! Had to relearn that one not to long ago, except this time removed all of the restrictions from “anyone”.

    Any man can withstand adversity.

    If you want to test a man's character give him power.
