Here are Eric's "Five Rules For Life":

1.) Everything Dad told you was true.
When I was a kid I had no clue why he was so concerned about mileage on the car, or what temperature the thermostat was set at. Now? I am crystal clear.

2.) Beware of the quiet ones.
This goes for women, pets, and potential employees.

3.) Always buy the first round.
You guys who wait until the third or fourth round - when some of the group has left or stopped drinking - we're on to you.

4.) There's no such thing as a good one-sided deal.
Whenever a guy tells you he's got a deal that is incredibly beneficial to you, it's guaranteed to only be incredibly beneficial to him.

5.) If it's funny, laugh at it.
Forget political correctness...laughter heals. And some of the funniest stuff is completely politically incorrect. Don't deny yourself.
