Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
Never miss a good chance to shut up.

I hope this list can be of some use! Come to think of it, Thanksgiving is coming up, and at some point during the day you'll be talking to someone you would rather NOT be talking to! That might be just the perfect moment to throw out some of these little tid-bits, ya know?
Now, my friends, coffee is ready. Let's get a fresh cup and sit outside for a bit, OK?
