Advice


Recommended Posts

Have you ever been given advice a long time ago that you still remember well all these years later. Heres 1 to start us.

 

Almost 30 years ago I walked into a bathroom at Ballantine Hall just as one of my professors did. He said let me give you some advice, " always use the end urinal 50% less chance of being pissed on." Every time I walk into a public restroom I hear those words.

I wonder if that Professor ever made students take this quiz...😁

As far as advice goes, this was offered by one of my old bosses when he found out I was engaged to be married...

"If she can beat you in arm-wrasslin' and out run you, don't do it."

Grandpa told me.. boy, if there comes a time when you think you know it all, your about to die. So I suggest, you always keep an open mind and an eager willingness to learn.

That has stuck with me and I find it nearly impossible to shut my brain off. I only sleep 4-5 hours a night. Been that way since I can remember.
 

Not really advice from a buddy-

College buddy: you chase the wrong type of women. 

Me: yeah, why’s that?

Buddy: ‘cause you make things too difficult. It’s not that hard if you think about it.

Me: wait, why would I take advice from you? The girls you chase already have kids.

Buddy: way I see it, if she already has a kid, she must be easy. Plus, she has to have some food around for the brat.

Me: 🤦‍♂️ 

That dude has been through so many marriages. SMH

So, you were college buddies with Fouls? 😁

I did not know that you and Fouls knew each other.

Aren’t you the one who talked about the old guy peeing in Morse Code? 
Do you have most of your memorable conversations in the bathroom?

great memory and why yes I do. When you are in sales and on the road a lot you spend a lot of time in the bathroom. Diet Mountain Dew is my down fall. In most parts of central Indiana just ask and I can tell you what bathrooms to use and which ones to stay away from.

When I was young (like 7) I went to the basement and my Dad was working on Mom's old wringer washing machine. I ask him, "why don't you just call a repair guy to fix it?"

He replied: "Son, I might as well try to fix it and save myself some money, cause the repair guy isn't gonna charge me anymore if I F-it up, than if I called him in the first place."

That sage advice, has saved me Thousands of dollars over the years.

My advice for today, beware of 4 wheel drives that think they’re invincible in the snow!!!

To add a Texas flavor to that, beware of 4 wheel drives that haven't seen snow since Colonel Sanders was a private, too 🙂

Looking back at this thread, amazed no one mentioned the immortal "Don't pee into the wind" and / or "Don't eat yellow snow". Advice I've carried with since I was a kid.

You a Jim Croce fan? I remember we had him in concert at Tri-State just a few weeks before his tragic end. Will always be a fan!

Sure. More of a casual, greatest hits type of fan of his. 

Remember listening to WILS one night out of Chicago: Frank Zappa came on. “Don’t eat the yellow snow” was mild to what came out! Will never forget the screech of the record when the DJ realized the number of F bombs coming out!

Grew up listening to WLS.
