If you're a fan of the original NCIS tv series and the Transporter movies or simply have watched them, you know the concept of what I'm talking about. Personal rules. Something to follow as a guideline for life, work, etc. You'll notice that in those shows, the really cool guy is the one with the rules; Gibbs, Frank, they followed them and only got into trouble when the rules were not followed.
I decided that I need the same sort of structure so I made up some rules to follow.
Rule 1 - Always treat everyone with respect; regardless of age, race, social status, etc.
Rule 2 - Always mean what you say or don't say anything at all.
Rule 3 - Always carry a knife.
Rule 4 - Never make promises you cannot keep or don't intend on keeping.
Rule 5 - Never break the gentleman's code.
Rule 6 - Take care of the machine, it'll take care of you.
Rule 7 - Never take anything for granted
Rule 8 - Trust everyone, just don't trust the devil in them.
(I'll keep adding them here as I get them... )
As it stands, those are the rules I'm going to follow..
