So I had an idea for a possibly fun thread. I thought it might be interesting, enlightening, and just plain hilarious if we wrote valuable, outdated, funny, or otherwise interesting advice from our parents/guardians. It doesn’t have to be particularly good advice either.
To get us started, my mother used to tell me I should always write on envelopes (y’know, for the now largely outdated practice of personal letter writing) in pencil, either alone or beneath the ink, in case wet weather made the ink unreadable.
My father always wore loafers with his suits. I asked him why and he said that really busy men don’t have time for shoelaces.
