    ...but don't be afraid to throw away the nonsense. They don't know as much as they think they do either.

    Take your lumps, figure it out. Don't take advice from bitter old people. Do you want to end up like them?

    Fifteen minutes early is on time.
    On time is late.
    And late is unacceptable.

    Oh, and the counters don't need you to hold them to the floor- they won't float away without your elbows leaning on them. So put down your phone, get to work, and earn the money that you're being paid- regardless of the amount. It shows dignity and character.

    EDIT: Violated the one line condition and went on a mini-rant there. Sorry 'bout that.

    Don't pick s**t up. Chances are, if you need it again, it'll be right there where you left it.
