The Shadow Knows and so do I-- so here are some more common sense things you should already know.
6- Never approach a dog from the side and ALWAYS let him smell your hand before you pet him. The dog needs to know you're not a threat.
7- When you order a sandwich to go have them hold the condiments. This'll keep the bread from getting wet and you can put your mustard and ketchup on it after you get it where you're going.
8- Dunkin Donuts Coffee is not just overpriced, its lousy. Cumberland Farms sells much better product and ALL of the coffee sizes are 99c.
9- DON'T BUY PRODUCE FROM A GROCERY STORE -- The only exceptions are Trader Joes and Whole Foods because both of them have high quality fruits and vegetables. The remaining chains all buy their produce at a port and have it shipped to their distribution centers before they get to their stores which means not only it's already old but that its been sitting in refrigeration for days-- not a good thing. Fruits and vegetables are best right off the tree or out of the ground. Find a farmstand and try getting your stuff from them.
10- Speaking of veggies--nobody likes peas. Don't serve them.
