Do not buy a car. It bugs me when people blow their first paycheck by going to a car dealership. Unless you are in need of one, drive what you have for a couple years and save some money. Since the end of the world passed, it seems like saving some may be useful for a future now.

Nah, the elitists are collapsing the dollar to go to one world currency. Blow it all on wine, women and weed now while it still has some value.

If you can, consider taking public transport. It's nice letting someone else drive. It's usually less expensive and is better for the environment. I think public transport is underrated, but I know that depends on the quality and reliability of said transport.

Some really good advice I got in my first managerial job was "follow up, followthrough" Don't take the lazy way out, even if it just following up with a customer to see how your company did. Just make the extra effort in communication.

and

wear underwear.

The good attitude comment was a good one. Everyone b****es and moans. Be the guy in a good mood with a smile, take the work on without complaining. No one wants to get rid of the guy everyone likes, unless your work just really sucks.

Stressful enough just to remember which is the number 1 restroom door vs. number 2.

UPDATE

Struggling to access LGP at work - still haven't received my computer and won't until next Wednesday (yikes)... and I don't like pulling my personal phone out this early in the game

#1 vs. #2 bathroom:

Day 1 of work I only knew of one bathroom. I figured it was the Oneroom because all 3 stalls were always empty. Day 2, I was freaking out because I had to take a dump and never found the Tworoom. But when I got into the Oneroom, 2/3 stalls were occupied by poopers. I promptly claimed stall 3, and pretty much every time I go into thre now someone is pinchin one off. Seems as though my Oneroom is a Tworoom.

Well then - sounds like it is time to locate the Execroom. The executive bathroom is for high rolling power players only, you never know who you might run into there, so be prepared with a 30 second line of **** about stuff you've done. It's obviously much nicer as well.

it's usually just a one-man bathroom, so if you can sneak in without them seeing you, you're fine. But if you leave a huge stink behind, they won't be happy with the peon pooping in their throne.

Thankfully, I am on a bowel cycle thanks to a high fiber diet where I generally poop immediately when I get to work. The water in the toilet is nearly always blue, ensuring that I am getting the first poop of the day, thus a fresh toilet. It's amazing.

That is one of the best ways to start your work day off right. Sometimes I don't flush so that they next person can have the pleasure of a blue toilet as well. :pop:

Because having to poop in the afternoon is the worst. You get the worst smells, and God only knows if your prior poopers practice etiquette when going to the bathroom.
