LPT: When a killer makes you dig your own grave, throw the soil far away so he has trouble backfilling.
Better still, don't do it, they're going to kill you anyway.
"Well I WAS going to murder you but damn, that's a nice hole you dug there. Run along you scamp."
Not sure I'd call that "LPT". It's more of a "DPT".
Actually once you dig the grave you're entitled to be compensated for all the hours you worked, report him to the fair work bureau and your next of kin will be able to collect the money you earned.
LPT: People are usually not fired for a big fuck up at work. They are usually fired for how they acted after the fuck up. So stay calm, be upfront & honest, and try minimize the damage
I pumped a full tanker of milk straight into the drain once. No one gave a shit. The local council was the most upset because they wanted to know why all of a sudden the sewerage treatment plant was full of milk.
Can confirm. I make a fuck up that cost the company tens of thousands of dollars in regulatory fines. I was even on a probation period. I straight up owned up, admitted it happened because I was complacent and not paying attention. Kept my job when I should have been fired by all rights.
That's because a new employee to replace you is likely to make that mistake as well. You on the other hand will never make that mistake again
Not if it’s a safety violation. Straight out the door, at least where I work.
LPT: If you are buying tortilla chips, go to the Mexican aisle of the grocery store instead of the chip aisle.
I'm starting to think most people on reddit don't live in Poland.
The Mexican aisle? Wtf. I'm in southern California, we have entire Mexican grocery stores
If you want cheap spices, go to the ethnic food aisle, rather than the spice aisle.
Bagged spices are just as good and many times cheaper.
Juanitas are the best tortilla chips ever. I live in Portland, and I don't know how far they are distributed, but good god they are the best.
LPT: Hurt your balls? Once you've gotten over your ego and can accept the fact that you can't swallow the pain, squat. It releases your balls from the spasm it got and is a better way to make the pain go than just holding your parts
Is this before or after crumbling to the floor whilst crying and excepting death?
I don't know if I'm going to be able to remember this during all the blinding pain... But I'll try, for you.
LPT: If Word crashes or shuts down and your document didn't save, search ".asd" in the file Explorer under "This/My PC". It will be there
Or compulsively hit ctrl-s after every other word!
LPT: Turn on Word’s autosave function. Verify it’s autosaving. Set for an appropriate time.... 5 minutes, 1 minute, etc.
The last several versions of Office do this automatically. If an asd exists it will prompt you the next time you start Word to recover the document. What version are you using where you still need to hunt for the asd file?
Multiple times, just to be sure
LPT: Turn your lights on in inclement weather. It’s not for you to be able to see; it’s so other drivers can see you.
Anyone that needs to be told this shouldn't be driving.
TIL driving lights are optional across the pond
So. Much. This.
Living in the Seattle Metro Area, it rains a lot (surprise!) and idiots still don't get this concept.
Bonus ProTip: If the street lights are on, so should your headlights.
My rule is, "If you can't see the sun, turn your lights un."
LPT: If you have a whiteboard with dry erase marker stuck on it, you can just draw on the permanent lines with another dry erase marker and it will erase easily.
I just learned this today and it has changed my life.
You can erase permanent marker from a white board like this too if you have used one accidentally.
I've found rubbing alcohol to do the trick
And if you've gone to town on your whiteboard with a permanent marker some aerosols (mosquito repellent) will remove it easily. Use sparingly though because it takes off the white board coating turning it into a plain old board.
this is exactly why all these tips work, they contain alcohol.
LPT: Train your dog to come to you when the fire alarm goes off. This could save your life in the event of a fire when you're sleeping.
I learned when my dad burned some grilled cheese that my dog is TERRIFIED of the smoke alarm and she runs to me and doesn't leave me alone until I hug her and the alarm is turned off
Easy! Set house on fire, give dog treat.
Instructions unclear, dog became arsonist trying to earn treats.
what kind of ridiculous "protip" is this?? If the damn fire alarm doesn't wake you up the dog sure as hell won't either... lol how this got 92 upvotes is beyond me?!
LPT: don't pour coffee from a height. You may burn yourself and it makes little/no difference to the taste
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT
Not only do I pour coffee from my 2nd floor loft into the kitchen, but I put it through a cheese cloth that was hand-made by Colombian coffee farmers so you can taste the labor that went into a brewed cup of free trade organic bold roast.
Conspiracy theory: What if a paper towel company posted the other LPT in order to increase their sales?
Where was this LPT two weeks ago before I killed myself and my whole family in horrific coffee pouring accident?
[LPT] if you have problems power napping for the right amount of time, hold something in your hand. When it falls, it's time to wake up.
TIL what power napping should be. My power nap is: sleep. When I wake up, that’s the time to get up.
As someone with sleeping issues, I will never understand how people can Power Nap.
And what is the right amount of time for a Power Nap anyway!!
max 30 mins. is a good rule of thumb. Basically any amount of short sleep, that doesn't leave you groggy af once you wake
What if I'm too unaware while sleeping to notice it fell?
