    I learned that the hard way

    What things did you learn the hard way? My list:

    1. Nothing means something.

    2. Sometimes people have a turn signal on and don't intend to do what they're indicating.

    3. Always empty all your pockets completely before during laundry, especially the ipod with your entire CD collection on it.

    Ignore at your own peril the little voice in your head that tells you what the right thing to do is.

    Those who speak the loudest are unlikeliest to be the most intelligent.

    Girls are generally more attracted to jerks than nice guys. Playing that role of jerk, however, can be a slippery slope.

    If your "buddy" usually talks [stuff] about people behind their backs to you, you can go ahead and assume he's doing the same about you when you're not around.

    My Dad was once 16 too.

    I think Stewie Griffin put it best. "Women respond positively when you treat them like crap."

    Another one from the dating side. When she says "It's not you, it's me." It's definitely you.

    Most people are one of those dumb people.

    And some of those people are your friends and family so you learn to love them despite of it.

    'Well that seems like a good idea' is a great way to describe something this is about to blow up in your face.

    Quoted for truth.

    One of the worst lessons to learn is that the word of some people mean absolutely zip.

    Paper, signature. Almost like a safety blanket at times.
