Eleven things they don't teach you at school.. Oh how so very very true..:applause:

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/year right out of high school. You won’t be a vice-president with a cell-phone, until you earn both.

Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. He
doesn’t have tenure.

Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a word for flipping burgers-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 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
hasn’t. In some schools they have abolished failing grades and they’ll give
you as many times as you want to get the answer right. 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 and
Christmas break off, and very few employers are interested in helping you
find yourself. Do that on you own time.

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

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




Feel free to add to it.....

#12 Learn some manners, and for the love Christ, use spellcheck.
Turn in a resume with a typo and it's shredded.

Rule 13: Every once in a while just randomly walk up to your parents, hug them, and say 'Thank You'. It won't kill you, ruin your 'cool', but WILL go a long way towards your relationship with them.

So, what is the definition of a 'Scouser'? Forgive my colonial ignorance.

Someone from within the city limits of Liverpool. My wife is from Bootle, so not technically a 'Scouser'. The term comes from the influx of Irish people to Liverpool following the potato famine of the 1840s. 'Scouse' is a meal made up of various vegetables, meat and potatoes, mixed and heated up in a pan, and it became a staple meal of those in the city. Hence the term Scousers. Cockneys (southerners) like Phil47uk wish they had been born there, because while Liverpool was giving the world The Beatles, his home city was giving us The Dave Clark Five (WTF!!!) and Manchester gave us Freddie and the Dreamers (even bigger WTF!!!).
