Can we make a list of common sense advice?

Asked by RedDeerGuy1 (19441points) June 29th, 2019

I’ll start.

Before recycling milk containers please rinse out first or your apartment will stink and you will too at work and school.

Never assume anything. And if you must assume something, assume to never assume anything!
Honesty is always the best policy but some things are better left unsaid.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.

The truth is just an excuse for a lack of imagination.
Shooting someone in the back is the safest way.
Lying is a skill like any other, and to maintain a level of excellence, you must practice constantly.
The true moral of the “Boy who cried Wolf” story is, that you should never tell the same lie twice.
Treason, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.
Paranoid is what they call people who imagine threats against their life. I have threats against my life.

Never trust a guy that wears a belt and suspenders at the same time.

Watch out where the huskies go, don’t you eat that yellow snow. – Frank Zappa

No matter how beautiful she is, you know there is a guy somewhere that is tired of her shit (this also goes for guys).

Similarly, Outer beauty fades, but inner beauty lasts.

Stupidity, like hydrogen, is universal.

There is nothing common about common sense.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by
the things you didn’t do than by the
ones you did do.

So throw off the bowlines,sail away from the safe harbor.

Catch the trade winds in your sails.

Even when you are wrong you are right…
because knowing you are wrong makes you right!

Always do the right thing because it is the right thing to do.

“Never hurt your own feelings.” Don’t take offense when none is intended, and don’t analyze interactions in search of slights and insults.

“Don’t borrow trouble.” The world has a vast surplus of problems and conflicts that you can’t avoid. Don’t compound this by taking needless actions that’ll have detrimental effects.

“Never try to reason with someone who’s being irrational.” Banging your own head against a wall is less frustrating and more beneficial.

“There are at least 3 sides to every conflict.” Party A’s version, what Party B says, and the reality.

“Never try to placate a bully.” Bullies smell blood, and they view sanity and reason as weaknesses. The only things you can do are: (1) retreat and avoid (best), or (2) let yourself be bullied (worst), or (3) stand up for yourself and fight back (a challenge, but often worthwhile).

Run it up the flag pole, and see who salutes. And never use the term SNAFU around kids, lol. My dad did that once when I had a bad grade card when he was off on a deployment. He got back and mom ratted me out. He told me, just because I’m gone awhile is no excuse for you to go SNAFU on your grades. I asked what that was, he said an old military phrase. Situation Normal All Fucked Up. LOL We had a laugh about it, then mom jumped his ass for using that. I thought it was hilarious though. But he told me, any more Fs and next time you won’t be laughing. Point was taken. LOL
