Chose friends you don't like.
Practice button pushing
If you have free time during the rush hour, find a pedestrian crossing and repeatedly push the button to stop the traffic. Never actually cross the road.
The remote control stratagem
Find out when your friends' favorite TV program is on. Then call them seven minutes after it starts.

Small print annoys everyone. The people who read it. The people who don't read it. Even the people who write it.
It's better that they should know
Recognize other people's limitations. Then tell people what they are.
Recognize your limitations. Then ignore them.
