A 9-year-old offers advice to a 5-year-old, and you’ll be surprised at how well it informs your construction subcontracting project skills.


One of the fourth graders in our family realized that his cousin would be starting kindergarten the next day, so he sat down to give his young cousin some advice. This is what he wrote.


10 Steps on How to Survive Kinder!

By Mason Thomas


Step 1:

Don’t be shy, have fun!

Also, your teacher is not, I repeat is NOT a monster. Trust me. I’m in 4th grade. So far no monster.


Step 2:

Be yourself, make a lot of friends.

But stay away from the kids that bite. They are zombies!


Step 3:

PE is the best! No, the PE teacher is not a vampire. I found that out the hard way. Don’t throw vinegar at a teacher.


Step 4:

Bring snacks NOT snakes.


Step 5:

The art teacher is NOT an octopus. She only has 2 hands!


Step 6:

Make sure you eat all of your lunch. If not you might have to eat bugs outside while everyone else is playing.


Step 7:

Dude, trust me on this.

All GIRLS STINK AND HAVE COOTIES! Stay away from girls!


Step 8:

Make sure that your drink is NOT poison, always bring one from home!


Step 9:

Your principal is actually really nice and not a mean old dragon!


Step 10:

Don’t be late to after school pick up, because your mommy might turn into a MUMMY!


Bonus Tip!

Don’t pick your nose or your butt!

Who could ask for better advice when starting a new day of kinder or a new project? We’ve taken the advice to heart, changed a few words, added others, and come up with our own:


10 Steps to Survive the First Day of a New Project


Step 1:

Don’t be shy, have fun!

Also, your GC or owner is not, I repeat is NOT a monster. Trust me; I’ve been through 4th grade – and a few more. So far no monster.


Step 2:

Be yourself, make a lot of friends.

But stay away from the wacky people that bite. They are zombies!


Step 3:

Physical Exercise is the best! No, physical exercise is not a vampire and will not suck your life out. I found that out the hard way. Don’t use vinegar when you’re participating in physical activity.


Step 4:

Bring snacks NOT snakes. (Nuff said!)


Step 5:

The architect is NOT an octopus. She only has 2 hands!


Step 6:

Make sure you eat all your lunch. If not, you might have to eat bugs outside while everyone else is playing. (And that is disgusting!)


Step 7:

Dude, trust me on this.

SOME GIRLS STINK AND HAVE COOTIES! Just like SOME BOYS STINK AND HAVE COOTIES. Stay away from girls and boys who stink and have cooties! Hire only girls and boys who are free of the foul employee stench and the crummy cootie grumbles.


Step 8:

Make sure that your drink is NOT poison, always bring one from home! And you might as well get enough to share.


Step 9:

Your project superintendent is probably nice and not a mean old dragon!


Step 10:

Don’t be late to after school pick up, because your mommy might turn into a MUMMY! (And we couldn’t have said it any better than that!)


Bonus Tip!

Don’t pick your nose or your butt! (Because you’re a grownup, right?)
