  2. You always follow the advice of your parents
  3. You often say, “whatever” and you aren’t being sarcastic
  4. You think that pan handling is beneath you
  5. You must sit down to eat
  6. You are offended and not proud when someone says your crazy
  7. You were voted Most Likely to Succeed in High School
  8. You weren’t voted Talks Most Says Least in High School
  9. You don’t believe that Beef Jerky and Potato Chips qualify as a Steak and Potato’s Dinner
  10. You think that you can learn about business from watching Donald Trump and the Apprentice
