Advice to a Younger Man

with one comment

I ran across Ted Dziuba’s post Advice to Old Men from a Young Man.   I though I’d return the favor:

  1. Unless you are dating Scarlett Johansson, we don’t care about your girlfriend.
  2. Stay out of the left lane unless your car is faster than mine, and you are actually going faster. See #3, its likely I make way more money than you so I probably have a better/nicer/faster car; unless I spent that money on a big boat.
  3. Yes, things will always get more expensive – we make lots more money than you so it really doesn’t matter.
  4. Can do on the war stories – glad you like them.
  5. That’s good advice 🙂
  6. We don’t own you anything either – especially a job.
  7. Respect your elders – if it wasn’t for us, you wouldn’t be working on whatever you are are working on. You’d be working on what we already did.
  8. The right way to respond to advice form a more experienced man is.
    * Thanks dude
    * Thanks man
    * Cool, thanks
    * Pretty much any phrase containing the word ‘thanks’
  9. No problem. Vegas is a short flight away. First round is on me.
  10. That kind of victory can be really, really expensive. Beware the ruby lipped tonsil sucker; they are fun – for a while. Then they turn into soul leaching psychopaths. That’s advice by the way…
