Walk behind the tallest businessman

Look both ways while crossing the street

Avoid eye contact


Be nice to the bartender

Continuously praise the help 

Show no mercy to taxi cabs 


Quick pace

Carry more than one pair of socks

Always have a granola bar


Cash is necessary 

Don't offer to pick up the tab

You won't see a dime


Eat carbs 

Walk everywhere

Never drink too much for a Metro ride


Argue with your landlord 

Maintain your manners 

Stick up for what you've signed for 


Hand out compliments 

But only authenticity is acceptable currency 

Never waiver in your kindness


Take the time to hold a door 

Understand that punctuality comes after humanity 

Work harder than you have before
