Default Eleven Things You Won't Learn in School

RULE 1 Life is not fair - get used to it.

RULE 2 The world won'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 40 thousand dollars a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice president with car phone, until you earn both.

RULE 4 If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. He doesn't have tenure.

RULE 5 Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping they called it Opportunity.

RULE 6 If you mess up,it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

RULE 7 Before you were born, your parents weren'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 are. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent'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 they'll give you as many times as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

RULE 9 Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do that on your own time.

RULE 10 Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

RULE 11 Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams

So true.....
Romans 1:16 I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.

that is very true. I unfortunately went to a school where they eliminated failing grades.
we're Americans and we pray for peace, and if we can't have peace we find and destroy the people who screwed up the damn peace. So we can have some peace. - Christopher Titus

I was homeschooled and got preached these. If I failed my ass was in trouble because I had to start the chapter over and some extra chores were added. If I talked like I knew it all dad would just try to show me how a jet engine worked, which showed me, "hey stupid, learning doesn't stop at age 18 (high school), adults have 20 years or more of street smarts and book smarts, so you are like itty bitty on the knowledge meter."
My parents were amazing in teaching me values and lessons. I am still trying to pick apart what they want me to learn, because they expect me to be smart enough to learn about something in-directly. Really and truly, it is very helpful in helping me read peoples body languages.

I wish everyone had parents like mine, because they were both hard and loving. The world would be better off with more Darlene and Nick Bakers.
Ah jeez, kinda got carried away with this post. lol, owell
