不是所有毕业忠告都叫Bill Gates
**Rule No.1:****Life is not fair. Get used to it.**

人生是不公平的。你要去适应。

**Rule No.2:****The real world won't care about your self-esteem as much as your school does. It'll expect you to accomplish something before you feel good about yourself.**

现实世界可不会像学校那么在乎你的自尊。当你还没成功时,没人指望你会自我感觉良好。

**Rule No.3:****Sorry, you won't make $40,000 a year right out of high school. And you won't be a vice president or have a car phone either.**

不好意思,你高中刚毕业不可能一年赚40万,不可能是某家公司的副总,也不会有车载电话。

**Rule No.4:****If you think your teacher is tough, wait 'til you get a boss.**

如果你觉得老师好严格,那是因为你还没有遇到老板。

**Rule No.5:****Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping. They called it opportunity.**

烤肉饼(泛指做低收入的工作)并不会降低你的尊严。你的祖父辈对烤肉饼有不同的说法,他们管这叫机会。

**Rule No.6:****It's not your parents' fault. If you screw up, you are responsible.**

如果你把事情搞砸了,你要自己负责,那不是爸妈的错。
**Rule No. 7:****Before you were born your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way paying your bills, cleaning up your room and listening to you tell them how idealistic you are.**

在你出生前,爸妈并不像现在那么无聊。他们在为你付账单、帮你打扫房间和听你高谈阔论理想主义的过程中变成了这样。

**Rule No. 8:****Your school may have done away with winners and losers. Life hasn't.**

学校可能不会在乎你是赢家还是屌丝。但生活会。

**Rule No. 9:****Life is not divided into semesters, and you don't get summers off. They expect you to show up every day. For eight hours. It just goes on and on. While we're at it, very few jobs are interested in fostering your self-expression or helping you find yourself.**

人生没有学期,也没有暑假。他们希望你每天出现在公司,工作8个小时,日复一日。工作时,很少有人会关心你能否展现自我或帮你找自己。

**Rule No. 10:****Television is not real life. In real life, people actually have to leave the coffee shop to go to jobs.**

电视不是真实的人生。在现实生活中,人总要离开咖啡店去工作的。

**Rule No. 11:****Be nice to nerds. You may end up working for them.**

对书呆子友好一点。万一你将来为他们打工呢。

*再次辟谣,这不是Bill Gates本人给的建议,虽然最后1条听起来很像。。
