 Charles Sykes is the author of DUMBING DOWN OUR KIDS.  He volunteered
 for high school and college graduates a list of things they did not
 learn in school.
 
 In his book, he talks about how the liberal, feel good, politically
 correct garbage has created a generation of kids with no concept of
 reality and set them up for failure in the real world.  Anyone who's
 supervised people from this generation will agree.
 
 Rule 1: Life is not fair; get used to it.
 
 Rule 2: The world won't care about your self-esteem.  The world will
 expect you to accomplish something before you feel good about yourself.
 
 Rule 3: You will not make 40 thousand dollars a year right out of high
 school. You won't be a vice president with a car phone until you earn
 both.
 
 Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. He
 doesn't have tenure.
 
 Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents
 had a different word for burger flipping; they called it opportunity.
 
 Rule 6: If you screw up, it's not your parents' fault so don't whine
 about your mistakes. Learn from them.
 
 Rule 7: Before you were born your parents weren't as boring as they are
 now. They got that way paying your bills, cleaning your room, and
 listening to you tell how idealistic you are. So before you save the
 rain forest from the blood-sucking parasites of your parents'
 generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.
 
 Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers but life
 has not. In some schools they have abolished failing grades, they'll
 give you as many times as you want to get the right answer. This, of
 course, bears not the slightest resemblance to anything in real life.
 
 Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off,
 and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do
 that on your own time.
 
 Rule 10: Television is not real life. In real life people actually have
 to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.
 
 Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.
 
 Rule 12: Living fast and dying young is romantic - only until you see
 one of your peers at room temperature
