I found this on the net, I thought someone might enjoy it. Rule 1: Life is not fair Ã¢â‚¬â€œ get used to it! Rule 2: The world wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself. Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both. Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping. They called it opportunity. Rule 6: You are accountable for your own actions. If you mess up itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not your teachers fault, your parents fault, or your enemies fault. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s your own fault. Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents werenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parentÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s generation, try delousing the closet in your own room. Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools they have abolished failing grades and theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life. Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t get summers off and no employer is interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time. Rule 10: Television in NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop to go to jobs. Rule 11: Be nice to geeks. Chances are youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll end up working for one.
