  2. Your friends never expect you to pay for lunch, dinner or anything else for that matter.
  3. When it’s raining, you can lie around the house all day and never worry about being fired.
  4. If it itches, you can reach it. And, no matter what itches, no one is offended if you scratch it in public.
