AskMen.com has a list of the top ten things men shouldn't do after the age of 30. A few of them are iffy, but mostly it's dead on . . .
#10.) EATING FAST FOOD. You'll start feeling the effects once your metabolism slows down. And almost anything you make at home is better for you than fast food.
#9.) DRIVING WRECKLESSLY. About a million people die from car accidents every year, and about 50 million more people are injured. And men tend to drive more aggressively than women do.
#8.) PLAYING VIDEO GAMES ALL DAY. Playing games on your cell phone while you're waiting in the doctor's office is one thing. But if you're always tethered to your PlayStation 3 . . . it's time to grow up.
#7.) LIVING IN A DORM ROOM. Not literally, but if you're over 30, you shouldn't have Grateful Dead posters on the wall, pizza boxes on the floor, and empty beer cans scattered all around your apartment.
#6.) GETTING A TATTOO. This one's debatable, but AskMen.com makes a good point: If you get a BAD tattoo when you're FORTY, you can't really explain it away as something you did when you were young and stupid.
#5.) BINGE DRINKING. Again, when you're 22, you can blame it on being young and crazy. But there's a point where, if you're binge drinking all the time, it starts to become an ILLNESS.
--And if you haven't worried about it all yet, hitting 30 is a good time to start.
#4.) LIVING PAYCHECK-TO-PAYCHECK. This one's easier said than done. But once you're in your 30's, you need to figure out a way to save whatever you can each month and prepare for things like kids, layoffs, and health issues.
#3.) WORKING AT A DEAD-END JOB. If you've been at the same job for five years and they haven't given you a promotion yet, they might NEVER give you one. So it might be time to look for a job where you can start climbing the ladder.
#2.) KNOWING NOTHING ABOUT POLITICS. In American demographics, the term "youth vote" means voters between the ages of 18 and 29. So if you're over 30, you're an adult who should know something about how the world works.
#1.) DRESSING LIKE A SLOB. It doesn't take much time, effort, or even money to dress like an adult. You just have to care about how you present yourself. And you have to realize that more is expected of you now than when you were 20.
