  6. Nice guys don't finish nice even if they do finish.
  7. The best way to solve an office problem is to find someone to solve it for you. Then take the credit.
  8. Don't waste your time trying to make anything foolproof  some fools are geniuses in disguise.
  9. When in a hurry anything and everything can be filed under miscellaneous.
