There's so many people doing the same stupid things over and over again, that it's about time somebody did something about it (like compile a "stupid list"), in order to help these otherwise stable individuals eventually learn how to better lead a safe and trouble-free life.
I call this a list for "single people" only because I can't speak from the perspective of a married person. However, I suspect that most of these entries apply just as appropriately to married folks.
And I'm not including seemingly obvious stuff here such as "drinking too much," "gambling too much," and "using illegal drugs," because most people who participate in those types of vices are suffering from genuine addiction, and ought to seek the help of qualified professionals who can guide them into better fulfilling their life's true purpose.
Also, this list is in no particular order:
1.) Texting While Driving
There's already been way too many innocent men, women, and children killed because of all the stupid and impatient people who simply can't wait until they get to their destination to "text someone back." C'mon, now--get a clue!
2.) "Drinking and DIALING"
If you've had more than 3 alcoholic drinks, DO NOT CALL OR TEXT any past, present, or future love interests! You'll inevitably regret it, so don't say I didn't warn you.
3.) Getting Into A Fight
Too many people don't realize that "simply" getting into a fight can lead to your being charged with Assault and/or Battery! You can wind up in jail for weeks on a first offense. And don't forget that that misdemeanor or felony charge will stay on your record for many years to come. So, if you truly feel that you can't go through life without hitting another human being, then go join a gym and legitimately train to become a boxer or wrestler.
4.) Selling Drugs
If you have sold, are selling, or plan to sell illegal drugs in the future--then I hope you drop dead RIGHT NOW. Just think for a minute of all the lives that have been completely ruined by all the pathetic losers who are guilty of committing this senseless crime against humanity.
5.) Telling Someone You Love Him/Her Before the 20th Date (or so)
There's such a thing as "puppy love," and this entry of course doesn't apply to that innocent state of youthful bliss. But for an adult to utter the words "I love you" too soon in a relationship is just about the quickest way to end that relationship.
6.) Going On A Diet
Save your money, because diets don't work. Just stop eating when you're full, and get your butt off the couch to exercise most days of the week. Not everyone is meant to be skinny--genetics have more to do with your physical shape than anything else. But if you clearly are morbidly obese, then consider undergoing gastric bypass surgery. It almost always works.
Don't tailgate other motorists. You won't get to your destination any sooner, and if the driver in front of you decides to be a jerk and slams on his/her brakes, then guess what? When you likely crash into that vehicle, you will automatically be considered "at fault" and you can kiss your reasonable car insurance rates goodbye for a long, long time!
8.) Opening Email Attachments From Sources You Don't Know
This entry may seem obvious to most of you computer literate folks, but many online "newbies" don't realize that this is the easiest and most common way to pick up a nasty hacker-virus that could thoroughly destroy your computer.
9.) Getting Married/Having A Baby Before You're Ready
This one's obvious. Experience life and live a little before taking the lifelong step of getting married and having children. Remember, that once you have kids you can never truly "go back."
10.) Not Taking Your Credit Score Seriously
Whether you like it or not, your credit score virtually defines who you are. You cannot legitimately "live the good life" without possessing a high credit score--that's a fact. And if you're 21 years of age or older and don't know approximately what your credit score is, then shame on you. For being pretty stupid, that is.
