The best advice someone gave you.
Simple thread.

Name someone - and the best advice they gave you.

LCDR Thomas McCarthy (XO of my first duty station)

"Boy - if you' re learning to drink coffee - learn to drink it black. Anywhere you go, they'll have coffee - but they may not have all that milk and sugar you' re putting in it. Besides - if you want a milkshake go to Mcfucking Donalds."

Elderly retired Naval officer in a nursing home told me : "You know, if you really want people to think you're busy you should carry a clipboard". I thought I was very busy as I was the Director of Nursing but the old salt may have seen right through me. I now routinely carry a clipboard.
