This is a question Advice from Old People

Sometimes, just sometimes, old people say something worth listening to. Ok, so it's like picking the needle out of a whole haystack of mis-remembered war stories, but those gems should be celebrated.

Tell us something worthwhile an old-type person has told you.

Note, we're leaving the definition of old up to you, you smooth-skinned youngsters.

Advice that could save your life
My grandad was full of sage advice such as "never trust a man with small feet" and "never trust a man who keeps his money in a purse" both of which have stood me in good stead.

However, his best piece of advice was "never trust a Welshman". Back in 1940 he got pissed with a Welshman and both of them agreed to join up the following day. Next morning my grandad went down to the recruiting station and signed up. As for Taffy, he was nowhere to be seen. Cue several years in the desert for Grandad being shot at by the Bosch!
