    It almost guarantees the opposite; people are more inclined to treat family like crap because they know you'll still love them even if you're ****** at them for being jerks.

    exactly. They think that shared DNA auto-earns them a right to perpetual respect and obedience.

    It is worth the cost to call an exterminator for bumblebees. Taking on a large hive with a can of wasp spray in each hand is a bad idea. What was it that King Arthur yelled when attacked by that killer rabbit? Oh yes, RUN AWAY!

    we discovered a giant *** yellow jacket wasp in our basement one year. We definitely called an exterminator. Not a chance that we were going to take that on otherwise.

    Something my brother probably learned the hard way - don't use a squirt gun on a barn wasp nest. Or if you do, run fast and run far. Otherwise your face will become unrecognizable and you'll discover a new allergy.

    Don't drive over a seemingly harmless pile of snow unless you know it a harmless pile of snow. The snow may be covering a cement parking block with rebar. Rebar may tear your brake lines and you will be driving without brakes.

    If a relationship doesn't feel right, and the other person is treating you poorly, end it.

    And then don't go back to that person.

    I love it when women quote this. I love Marilyn Monroe, but she prostituted herself out, had affairs with married men, then offed herself. She couldn't even handle herself at her worst.

    IF you're in a tough situation with your family, don't turn your back on them, they will always be there for you, even if you just had an intervention with them.

    1) DO NOT GO BACK TO AN EX...they are an ex for a reason
    2) One night out with friends can end with 48 hours in jail and a year without a license
    3) Make your mistakes when you're young
