There are skills in life that we have learned which most likely weren’t taught at school—something that you could potentially come across at the least expected moment in your life and well, that’s when your universal domestic knowledge would come in and save the day.

So whether it’s jumpstarting a car, saving a choking dog, or knowing how to make the most out of any Google search—you will totally cover it! It’s great to be fully equipped to face any situation that you could possibly find yourself in. People on the internet call it “dadvice”—something that your dad has definitely decided to teach you, but as we know, even the best dads fail to fill in the gap. This popular Reddit community called Every Man Should Know is on a mission to introduce you to anything that your dad could have forgotten to cover.

How To Move With Friends

If you’re asking friends to help you move, have everything packed and stacked and ready to be loaded before they show up. Pay them with food and drinks. You should be completely ready to go even if you hire company movers, because you pay more the longer it takes to get you moved.
