Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it

Rule 2: The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect
you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

Rule 3: You will NOT make $40,000 a year right out of high school. You
won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.

Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.

Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had
a different word for burger flipping -- they called it opportunity.

Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your
mistakes, learn from them.

Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are
now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and
listening to you talk about how cool you are. So before you save the rain
forest from the parasites of your parents' generation, try delousing the closet
in your own room.

Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life
has not. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll give
you as many times as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the
slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and
very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do that on
your own time.

Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to
leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one

Zeke old boy, this is a keeper. I'm sitting here reading these aloud to hubby and we're both rolling in the floor. As parents of two teen boys, this couldn't be more accurate... Hubby has instructed me to print this out and hang a copy on the bedroom door of each one of our "children". (If we can call them that)Thanks...

The ultimate irony of these rules is that they were written by everyone's best buddy, Bill Gates. Although I agree with the sentiment, Gates' insight was gained vicariously, rather than from personal experience. Despite popular perception that Bill is a self-made billionaire, his trust fund was huge. He never had to deal with the economic realities implied in his list.
