Discipline

Bobby Knight said discipline is doing what has to be done, when it has to be done, as well as it can be done, and doing it that way all the time. Seeing as he just tied North Carolina’s Dean Smith as the all-time wins leader for college basketball I have to assume he knows something.

Doing what has to be done is a simple concept, but not so easy accomplish in real life. Eating right, studying instead of partying, working out consistently, and spending money wisely are all thing that should be done but don’t always get done. Discipline is doing them. Next is doing it when is has to be done. In some cases that is now instead of next week, or 5am instead of never, or never instead of now. Discipline is “simply” a matter of doing it when it should be done. Doing it as well as it can be done. Again, not easy to do, at least all the time. This means no cutting corners. Discipline is doing it right the first time. Finally, doing it that way all the time. Do it, do it now, and do it right every time. No exceptions. Discipline is giving your all every time.

Polite Way to Pee

During one of her daily classes a teacher trying to teach good manners, asked her students the following question:

“Michael, if you were on a date having dinner with a nice young lady, how would you tell her that you have to go to the bathroom?” Michael said, “Just a minute I have to go pee.” The teacher responded by saying, “That would be rude and impolite.”

“What about you Peter, how would you say it?” Peter said, “I am sorry, but I really need to go to the bathroom. I’ll be right back.”

“That’s better, but it’s still not very nice to say the word bathroom at the dinner table. And you, little Johnny, can you use your brain for once and show us your good manners?”

“I would say: Darling, may I please be excused for a moment? I have to shake hands with a very dear friend of mine, whom I hope you’ll get to meet after dinner.”

And the teacher said ?????????

We’ve all heard about people having guts or balls. But do you really know the difference between them? In an effort to keep you informed, the definition of each is listed below:

“GUTS” is arriving home late after a night out with the guys, being assaulted by your wife with a broom, and having the guts to say, “are you still cleaning or are you flying somewhere?”

“BALLS” is coming home late after a night out with the guys smelling of perfume and beer, lipstick on your collar, slapping your wife on the ass and having the balls to say, “You’re next!”

We hope this clears up any confusion,

Only a Man

A woman was in a coma. She had been in it for months. Nurses were in her room giving her a bath. One of them was washing her private parts and noticed that there was a slight response on the monitor when she touched the patient “down there.” They tried it again and sure enough, there was sizable movement on the monitor. They went to her husband and explained what happened, telling him, “As crazy as this sounds, maybe a little oral sex will do the trick and bring her out of the coma.” The husband was skeptical, but they assured him that they’d close the curtains for privacy. The husband finally agreed and went into his wife’s room. After a few minutes the woman’s monitor flat lined. No pulse, no heart rate, nothing. The nurses ran back into the room. “What happened!?” they cried.

The husband said, “I’m not sure… maybe she choked.”
