Lesson 2

A priest offered a nun a lift. She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg. The priest nearly had an accident. After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg. The nun said, “Father, remember Psalm 129?”

The priest removed his hand. But, changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again. The nun once again said, “Father, remember Psalm 129?” The priest apologized.  “Sorry, Sister, but the flesh is weak.”

Arriving at the convent, the nun went on her way. On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129. It said, “Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory.”

** Moral of the story:
If you are not well informed in your job, you might miss a great opportunity.

Lesson 3

A sales rep, an administration clerk, and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp. They rub it and a Genie comes out. The Genie says, “I’ll give each of you just one wish.”

“Me first! Me first!” says the admin clerk. “I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.”  Pouf! She’s gone.

“Me next! Me next!” says the sales rep. “I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life.”  Pouf! He’s gone.

“OK, you’re up next,” the Genie says to the manager. The manager says, “I want those two back in the office after lunch.”

** Moral of the story:
Always let your boss have the first say

Lesson 4

An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing. A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him,
“Can I also sit like you and do nothing?”

The eagle answered, “Sure, why not?”

So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

** Moral of the story:
To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.

Lesson 5

A turkey was chatting with a bull.

“I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree,” sighed
the turkey, “but I haven’t got the energy.”

“Well, why don’t you nibble on some of my droppings?” replied the
bull. “They’re packed with nutrients.”

The turkey pecked at a lump of dung, and found it actually gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second
branch. Finally after a fourth night, the turkey was proudly perched at the top of the tree.

He was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot him out of the tree.

** Moral of the story:
Bullshit might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there.

Lesson 6

A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field. While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him. As the
frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was. The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy. A
passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.

** Moral of the story:
(1) Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy;
(2) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend.
(3) And when you're in deep shit, it's best to keep your mouth shut!


This ends the Three-minute Management Course.

   Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me, either. Just leave me the hell alone.

   The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt and a leaky tire.

   It's always darkest before dawn. So if you're going to steal your neighbor's newspaper, that's the time to do it.

   Don't be irreplaceable. If you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.

   Always remember you're unique. Just like everyone else.

   Never test the depth of the water with both feet.

   Many is the man who has drowned in a lake whose average depth was only three feet.

   It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

   It is far more impressive when others discover your good qualities without your help.

   If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of car payments.

   Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you criticize him, you're a mile away and you have his shoes.

   If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

   Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat & drink beer all day.

   If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

   Don't squat with your spurs on.

   If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.

   If you drink, don't park; accidents cause people.

   Some days you are the bug, some days you are the windshield.

   Good judgment comes from bad experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

   The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

   Timing has an awful lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.

   A closed mouth gathers no foot.

   Duct tape is like the Force. It has a light side & a dark side, and it holds the universe together.

   There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works.

   Generally speaking, you aren't learning much when your mouth is moving.

   Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

   Never miss a good chance to shut up.

   If you think there is good in everybody, you haven't met everybody.

29    The mind is like a parachute; it works much better when it's open.

30    We are born naked, wet, and hungry. Then things get worse.

Sexual Orientation: How to Know if You Are Gay or Lesbian

Sexual Orientation: How to Know if You Are Gay or Lesbian

Here is a simple, eight question, yes or no quiz to determine without a doubt your sexual orientation.

Question 1:

Are you a man who owns more than 3 pairs of shoes or a woman who wears Birkenstocks whenever possible? Yes = 1 point

Question 2:

Are you a male who has dyed or highlighted his hair or a woman who hasn’t? Yes = 1 point.

Question 3:

Do you know what a carburetor is? Male: No = 1 point; Female: Yes = 1 point

Question 4:

My father was distant and emotionally abusive. Yes = 1 point

Question 5:

My mother is controlling. Yes = 1 point

Question 6:

Have you ever worked in construction? Male: No=1 point; Female: Yes =1 point

Question 7:

Knows what color “taupe” is? Male: Yes = 1 point; Female: No = 1 point

Question 8:

Have you been keeping score on this test? Yes = 1 point


Disregard the first seven questions. If you answered “yes” to question 8 then you are gay or lesbian. I mean, come on, if you need a blog quiz to tell you your sexual orientation then you really are in denial.

But you must REALLY listen. No interrupting, no daydreaming, no planning your response. Just listening.

Be generous with appropriate hugs, kisses, pats on the back and handholds. Let these small actions demonstrate the love you have for family and friends.

Clip cartoons. Share articles and funny stories. Your gift will say, "I love to laugh with you."

It can be a simple "Thanks for the help" note or a full sonnet. A brief, handwritten note may be remembered for a lifetime, and may even change a life.

A simple and sincere, "You look great in red," "You did a super job" or "That was a wonderful meal" can make someone's day.

Every day, go out of your way to do something kind.

There are times when we want nothing better than to be left alone. Be sensitive to those times and give the gift of solitude to others.

The easiest way to feel good is to extend a kind word to someone, really it's not that hard to say, "Hello" or "Thank you."
