The past, the present, and the future walked into a bar. It was tense.

Light travels faster than sound,
that is why some people appear bright until you hear
them speak.

Good one, Luke. Very similar:

Better to keep quiet and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt.

Not long ago there was a plumbing issue that led to the bathrooms at my job being unavailable about a half-hour before official closing time. Someone made the boneheaded decision to go to "skeleton crew" at a time when most of the staff had already left for the day. I was asked to stay; since it was only half an hour until my normal leaving time, I was OK with that, depending. :wink:

A supervisor asked me if I was OK to stay, after the decision was officially made, and I told him: "As long as I don't have to go, I'm good. But if I gotta go, I gotta go. And if I can't go when I gotta go, then... I gotta go." :?
