On having a big mouth

The next time you have a friend working on a project at your mutual place of work, do not get involved. Just don’t.

Do not send said friend pictures of the project’s progress so that s/he will become intimidated and not complete his/her portion.

Do not constantly try to explain said friend’s lack of progress/updates to your fellow coworkers.

Do not nag your friend to finish his/her part of the project.

Do not get involved. Do not open your mouth. Do nothing. Seriously, just don’t.

On the perils of public service

Spending the day talking to people while they borrow or return books, you will often find yourself sharing such pleasantries as “have a good day/night/afternoon.”

The problem?

You will inevitably find yourself sharing similar pleasantries with family and friends during phone conversations.
