21 Tips on Getting Better at Being Human… From The Internet.

Here’s a piece of history that still hasn’t managed to get old. Well, not that old, anyway. As it is often titled when found (in “pass it along or bad things will happen to you” emails, or 3:00am web-surfing sessions that find you in corners of the internet you forgot existed) it’s ADVICE FROM SOMEWHERE. No one knows where, but damn it, it’s advice, so you’d better take it. Especially because it’s on a computer and it’s in front of your eyes. You’d be silly not to. 😉

Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.
