I've Learned...

that you should be very careful who you trust. Not everyone who smiles at you is your friend.

The way people leave tells you everything about their character.

Honesty is much better than sugar-coated bullshit.

People lie because telling the truth takes courage, and liars are cowards looking for the easy way out.

When customers are treated badly, they will eventually take their business where they receive courtesy, honesty, and respect.

On a positive note, while the world seems full of fake people, thankfully there are still some genuine, caring ones around. Kick the fake liars out of your life, so there's more room for nice folks.

And, finally, I've got to stop asking these three questions:
     “How stupid can they be?”
     “Who would do THAT?”
     “What's wrong with people?”
Some idiots are actually taking them as a challenge.


Never do anything that you can't admit doing, 
because if you are that ashamed of whatever it is, 
it's probably wrong.” --Ashly Lorenzana
