Rules to Live By

Who are you to be telling other people how to live their life? I mean why should anyone listen to you? Your not the pope! Not saying i don’t agree with most of the rules.

Mike the Liberatarian lives in America because in many other countries in the world he would be in jail or dead for running his mouth like he does. He pisses on American freedoms because he has the right to do so, I suppose he ignores the irony of his behavior.

Demo – I decided that since you put some time into this, I could do the same. there are things here that bother me.

  1. Women are not to be referred to as bitches. …What do you care what other people call their women. I only care what people call my wife.

  2. Don’t leave your garbage lying around for others to pick up. … Same as #1. I don’t frquent the places that slobs frequent, and thus am not exposed to their behavior.

  3. Pull your pants up. …Who cares? My youngest wears big jeans, but not low and no cap. I really couldn’t care less either way. Our rule is “be clean”. And I did look like an idiot when I was 17, hair to my ass, bell bottoms, etc. So what? Part of being a kid.

  4. Cell phones … I reserve the right to do as I please in my own vehicle. I do have a hands free unit, and will pull over to discuss business.

  5. There is absolutely no excuse for treating a waitress, waiter, or any other service person abusively. … You are dead on here. Don’t piss on your waiter, cook, doctor, or mailman. BTW, I worked food service when I was a teenager. It sucked! I always tip at least 20% – more if the service is really good.

  6. If you paid attention to #3 and #4 and turned your baseball cap …Again – I don’t care what other people do as long as they don’t do it to me. And again – I don’t go places that cater to the low end of the social spectrum, so I don’t see it anyway.

  7. Respect your elders. …I have known some stupid old fucks. Just because you manage not to light you yarbles on fire for 80 years doesn’t mean you deserve my respect. Having said that, EVERYBODY is sir, mam, young man, or young lady to me until I am shown that they need to be addressed otherwise. I am willing to assume intelligence and goodwill, and respond accordingly. You want a smile – give one.

  8. No matter your political affiliation, respect and thank military veterans. … Dead on.

  9. Speaking of the flag, if you’re going to display it, please learn how to do so properly. …This would be nice, but I am still happy to see it, even if flown incorrectly.

  10. Remember rule #1? Okay, add these ones to it: Homosexuals …I don’t there are many left that use these terms except for fag. While racial slurs are not allowed in my home, I reserve the right to bust on the gays, because, well , they are gay, and an endless source of humor. Sorry.

  11. Finally, allow an Irishman to rant. He needs it once in a while. Especially when he misses his woman. …You are trying to pass off a behaivior you personally chose as not your responsibility, due to your lineage. I know you are being humorous, but it is silly. Once you are 18, all you say and do belong to you.


i agree. take your fucking hat off when you eat. i dont know why, but that just pisses me off.

Actually, the one rule should be “do whatever you can to respect and assist others”. A society where everyone just did whatever they wanted would be a society run amok. And although trying not to hurt other people is a good idea, even if something hurts just you, it in and of itself hurts someone else (ie. those who are close to you). A good thing to remember is that nobody can “sin in isolation” and therefore it is always good to strive for the good of everyone, and not just be selfishly insular. GM

I agree with the comment about waiters and I think it should be extended to service people in general. I dont know what makes people think they have the right to treat someone like shit just because they work where they do. I do think that people have a right to dress how they want to. I looked like an idiot when I was a kid with ripped jeans and long hair so hey, more power to them, they will grow out of it.

Though I agree with much of what you said, there are a couple of things I would like to ask. You mentioned that you don’t “frequent the places that slobs frequent, and thus am not exposed to their behavior”. How do you do that? I have a terribly difficult time avoiding slobs, reguardless of socio-economic status. I realized this weekend that I couldn’t decide which group of people seemed to exhibit more rudeness/trashiness - the lower class or the upper class. I really think rudeness/slobbery extends over all spectrums. Maybe I’m getting the wrong meaning of what you’re saying - that’s more than possible - but I’d like to know how you avoid slobs (life would be so much better if I could). You also said you reserve the right to do as you please in your own vehicle. Does that include knocking back a beer or two? I know that sounds like I’m being a smartass, but all the data I can find points to driving while talking on a cell phone makes people worse drivers than those who are legally intoxicated. Driving while talking on the cell phone can be dangerous, especially since most drivers can barely drive while not talking on the phone.

LOL. You must be terribly bored to want to bait me so badly. :slight_smile:

Some of you really need to learn what a rant is, and why it’s sometimes necessary. :wink:

How do I avoid slobs – Here I am speaking of people that are obnoxiously rude, and those that leave trash in public places. I live in a small town. When I shop, I use the net, or go into Fre’burg VA – Where I supose there are slobs, but I can list all the places I go on the fingers of one hand: Lowe’s, Borders, Best Buy, Kohls and an upscale cinema. I am sure if I went to the mall or Wal-Mart, I would see these people. It is not a socio-economic thing. All the places I go are accessible to everyone. I don’t do WMart, because the products are garbage and the service is non-existant. I don’t do the mall because the stuff i want is not there. As for cell phones, I use my hands-free. If I didn’t want to, I wouldn’t. No study or statistic could convince me. I am very aware of the constant erosion of my freedom in the name of safety, the public good, etc. I really, really, resent any restiction on my behavior. I didn’t chase the fucking commies back and forth underwater so some dipshit lawyer in DC could tell me how to live.

I like this particular set of rules. A lot of you will probably know where I got them from- but please, shut up and let others say what they think, since they are not likely to be biased (because of the source).

  1. Do not give opinions or advice unless you are asked.

  2. Do not tell your troubles to others unless you are sure they want to hear them.

  3. When in another’s lair, show him respect or else do not go there.

  4. If a guest in your lair annoys you, treat him cruelly and without mercy.

  5. Do not make sexual advances unless you are given the mating signal.

  6. Do not take that which does not belong to you unless it is a burden to the other person and he cries out to be relieved.

  7. Do not complain about anything to which you need not subject yourself.

  8. Do not harm little children.

  9. Do not kill animals unless you are attacked
    or for your food.

  10. When walking in open territory, bother no one. If someone bothers you, ask him to stop. If he does not stop, destroy him.

“You must be terribly bored to want to bait me so badly.”

Maybe yes, maybe no. We all have a few minutes to kill at work :wink:

I don’t know how old you are, but I gathered from your post that your pants might be too high. If your rule is don’t sag, you should also be sure to not have your pants two inches and more above your waist as I see men doing when they age.

Good rules Veljko, now spill where they’re from.

I think I’d have to agree with all of that except for the “fag” part. I mean queer people are well… queer. They’re not exactly normal.

Do I get a cookie if I know where that’s from?

(cue spooky music)

I haven’t started wearing black socks with my shorts yet, so I may not be as old as you think. :slight_smile:

Demo Dick

You’re missing one.

Thank you … for your lesson in Proper Manners!!! Too many people these days are Idiots and forget how to use the manners that their parents taught them… Or their parents never taught them… One more to add to the list… Always assist Elderly Ppl and Pregnant woman … and let them sit down on the BUS/or other areas!!! I am tired of Punks that let Poor granny stand beside them with her WALKER!! (while the punk is sitting) I have no desire to see the poor dear break a HIP! Well now that I have ranted. I will again say thanks… winks… And I am NOT a Bitch. So I am very glad you Reprimanded all the boys who may say so!!

They arent ‘Punks’, they’re adolescents. To bad you dont see the irony in congradulating those who don’t refer to women as ‘bitches’.
