Raymond Flores appears to have stumbled upon the ultimate cute kid note.
Technically, it's not a note at all; rather, it's a compendium of life "rules" -- from "no talking back" (a lesson this youngster could learn) and "no pushing" to the straightforward "protect this rule book."
The book's 157 tips also include "no elbows on the table," "do your chores," "pay attention in class," "don't color on people," "no littering" and "don't text and drive at the same time."
According to Fox 40, Flores, who works at the Walmart in Citrus Heights, Calif., found the book, which has all the hallmarks of a child's handiwork, in the store's parking lot.
Flores is hoping to return the book to its author; anyone with a lead can reach out to him through Fox 40 reporter Sonseeahray Tonsall.
As Tonsall notes, the list is unfinished. We'd like to respectfully suggest the following kid-approved additions:
- Organize your time well
- Set goals
- Don't hit dogs
- Always love cats
- Look after your loved ones
- Put up a fuss when the situation warrants it
- Be curious
- Don't be afraid to ask for the things you want
- Love well (and express your love often)
- Know "krata" and USE YOUR HEAD!
UPDATE Jan. 17 -- Fox 40 has found the authors of the rule book: California cousins Isabelle Busath, 10, and Isabella Thordsen, 8. (They told the network the rules were written with their little sisters in mind.) The pair has even reportedly been offered a book deal!
