    I thought this was a pretty funny twist on an old phrase:

    "Before you critisize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you critisize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes."


    Anyone else have any others?

    Remember, you are unique, just like everybody else.

    What is the secret to success? Good decisions. How do you learn to make good decisions? Experience. How do you get experience? Bad decisions.

    I always wanted to be somebody. I should have been more specific.

    My contribution to productivity at my job is to refrain from giving my co-workers the severe beatings they so richly deserve.

    When composing an e-mail message to your boss from home late at night, be sure to take inventory of the empty beer cans around you before you press 'send'.

    Two Rules For Success:
    1) Never tell people everything you know.

    That's a bear you'll have to cross.

    Which with the simple reversal of two words mixes the original metaphor, mixes two metaphors, and creates a new one more frightening than the previous ones.

    I just don't need any bears mad at me.

    Useful at work:

    1. The fact that no one understands you doesn't mean you're an artist.
    2. I have plenty of talent and vision. I just don't care.
    3. I like you. You remind me of when I was young and stupid.
    4. I will always cherish the initial misconceptions I had about you.
    5. Yes, I am an agent of Satan, but my duties are largely ceremonial.
    6. How about never? Is never good for you ?
    7. I'm really easy to get along with once you people learn to worship me.
    8. You sound reasonable. Time to up my medication.
    9. I'll try being nicer if you'll try being smarter.
    10. I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message.
    11. It might look like I'm doing nothing, but at the cellular level I'm really quite busy.
    12. At least I have a positive attitude about my destructive habits.
    13. You are validating my inherent mistrust of strangers.
