Things I've learned along the way.

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Cornerstone Business Group Inc 0225086119

Life is a learning experience, and most of us could write a book about the things we've learned along the way.  I have a few things I probably wouldn't put in my book of life lessons, but they are important things I've learned.  Such as:

  • Never feed a gaseous dog broccoli. 
  • TSA agents do not have a sense of humor no matter how hard you try.Thinking man
  • Do not drink a Coke while eating Mentos.
  • A cat is really, really hard to bathe.
  • I am not exempt from gravity.
  • Never wash reds and whites together.
  • Do not park under a power line.  Birds love to use your car for target practice.
  • If you post your phone number online, people will call you.  A lot of people will call you.
  • I retain ice cream.
  • No matter how good they taste, fish smell bad before, during and after you cook them.  Hours after.
  • A package will only be lost in the mail when it has to be there in 24 hours.
  • The Internet will go down just as you hit save on your blog.
  • You shouldn't say everything that comes to mind.
  • Politicians are prone to amnesia right after elections.
  • A two hour project always takes 4 hours.
  • Your previous listing will sell within days of a new agent taking it over at your original suggested list price.  She is a genius and you were a moron.
  • A birthday or anniversary will only be forgotten if it's a really big one.
  • Toast always falls butter side down. 
  • Best of all, every day of learning is a good day.

Hi Mike, nice list you have here :) but I do agree, every day of learning is a good day! What would a day be like if you don't learn anything. Thanks! Have a good learning day!

Ha, ha, ha! Love these! Funny thing is, I've personally learned most of these by experience. Thanks for the much needed chuckle tonight.

Very nice Mike! Loved Brenda's response, too! I could add a few to the list .. like kids will always slow down when you are in a hurry. Some dogs really do eat homework and milk that smells funny will also taste "funny".

You betcha, Richard.

Glad to encourage a few chuckles, Gretchen.

Those are great ones, Andrea.  We should all write a huge blog with our life lessons.

It would make a good blog, Roger.  I'll look forward to it. 8=)
