watch whose money you pick up

Old advice:

Beware of whores who say they don’t want money. The hell they don’t. What they mean is that they want *more* money; much more, these are the most expensive whores what can be got.

If you’re doing business with a religious son of a bitch, get it in writing; his word isn’t worth shit, not with the good lord telling him how to fuck you on the deal.

[. . .] Avoid fuck-ups. Fools, I call them. You all know the type — no matter how good it sounds, everything they have anything to do with turns into a disaster. Trouble for themselves and everyone connected with them. A fool is bad news, and it rubs off — don’t let it rub off on you.

Do not proffer sympathy to the mentally ill; it is a bottomless pit. Tell them firmly, “I am not paid to listen to this drivel — you are a terminal fool!” Otherwise, they make you as crazy as they are.

Above all, avoid confirmed criminals. They are a special malignant strain of fool.
