The value of a dollar.
What "a hard day's work" means.


Insane how many people my age and younger bitch about how hard their job is when they spend half the day on Facebook. Amazing how many kids I saw get cars as presents and then total them within a month, or their parents paid for college and they flunked out.

I'm sick of it. Fuggin' make you brat kids work for it. "You want a Gucci purse? Better check the Job ads." And it's okay if you want to help your kid pay for college so they don't start out in life buried in debt, but I seriously throw up in my mouth when I hear a parent say "Oh, I want don't want little Pfieffer to worry about money and work a job while he's studying. I want him to focus on his education while he's in school." Fug that! I started working 60 hours a week when I was 14, and worked 2 jobs to pay for college and a car.

You're not only turning your brat into walking weaksauce, you're fuggin' up our whole nation. Americans have become a culture of entitlement. I deserve this, I deserve that, and I'm gonna do nothing but piss and moan if I don't get it. No you fuggin' don't. You don't deserve a god damned thing in this life, except maybe an occasional beating. You earn it or you get nothing.

And that lesson starts at home.

-Show kindness to others, even when they don't show kindness to you.

-Self-deprecating humor is a great way to get people to accept your flaws.

How to change your own oil, spark plugs & wires, thermostat, air filter, tire, etc... even if you're a girl


um yeah...I have no fuging clue how to do this stuff...I'm a complete girl when it come to this..I just take it to honda when my maintenance light comes on and I let them take care of it

I agree with CatPoop up there that said that kids need to learn how to get a job..my boss was bitching about how his 16 year old kid just got his license and his insurance was OMG IT'S SOOOO EXPENSIVE!!

when I said.."he could get a job and help pay for it"..my boss said, "oh no, my kids don't work"

well then STFU and stop bitching about it....dumbass

this

and whats funny is I learned this the hard way.

I was spoonfed my whole life. My parents were avid fans of debt and big time spenders because we had money. I didnt learn how to work hard and I fuged around in school.

Now my Father is basically broke due to the recession and im going back to school while working trying to finally make my own career.

I'm 31 years old. If only I worked hard at school and in life when I was younger I wouldnt be in this predicament.

If only my father saved his money and invested it.

You live and you learn but it would have been better if I learned this poo at 16 and not in my 30s.

That your duty as a human being is to enhance the lives of those around you and those you love on a daily basis.

Now i dont blame them. I must take all the blame because I'm an adult now and should have learned this stuff on my own but I know one thing,

If my kids want a car they better get a freaking job.

1) That the world doesn't own you a freaking thing! If you want something,work for it!

2) Life isn't fair! However, over a lifetime, it tends to equal things out.

3) Everyone has a life lesson to learn! Some learn it early in life, some late and then there's the majority who never do!

4) For Girls. NEVER read a Fashion or Beauty magazine!

5) Some people lead, some people follow. Neither is right, neither is wrong!

6) You are responsible for your own happiness!

7) NEVER stop learning!

8) It truly is Better to Give,than to receive!

9) Never pee in the pool!

10) Even if he tells you he loves you. NEVER text, e-mail, give him naked pictures of yourself.

11) Keep giving your heart away until you find the special someone who protects it as much as you do!

12) Love can come in many colors, many sexes, many races and many religions!

13) ALWAYS carry condoms in your purse!

14) When in doubt, remember, I love you!

Agree with most of that. Except maybe for sneezing in your elbow (carry a tissue with you) and changing the oil.


I do a lot of the general maintenance on my truck. I flush the coolant system, change most of the filters, and most of the other required maintenance. But I don't change the oil. I know how to do it, but the mechanic up the street (very reliable guy) does it for only 10 bucks more than it would cost me to do it and I don't have to deal with getting rid of the used oil.

Don't choose your friends based on their level of "cool"

Think for yourself

Don't ever do anything just for the money

Basic camping/survival things (fire building, tent set-up as well as make-shift shelter building, locating water, map use, compass, etc)

Staying in the best physical shape possible from young in life until you die is important

Don't quit when it gets hard/don't start if you're going to quit
