'The Five' Hosts Share Their Advice for the Class of 2015
On "The Five" today, Greg Gutfeld said that commencement addresses are usually garbage, so he offered his advice for 2015 college graduates for free.
"Take any job, any job you can find. Work your butt off for one solid decade. That will put you ten years up on any pothead, backpacking-to-Europe, video-game-playing drone who thinks success drops from the sky like a magical Kardashian," Gutfeld said.
He recommended being a "workhorse" instead of aspiring to be on a reality show.
"And by 2025, you’ll surpass the famous people you see now. Hard work beats those who prefer identity over industry," Gutfeld said.
"Also, ask dumb questions, and listen quietly for answers. That’s a wisdom stair climber. Steer clear of pot. It's an ambition-sapper. Wait till you've made it. When you're 45, buy a bong. But for now, buy a suit," Gutfeld advised. "Move somewhere with decent public transit, so you don't drive drunk and hit somebody."
He also told graduates to keep a small online footprint.
"Everything’s being filmed, so any public rant you do to a clerk at a shoe store, that scars you eternally," Gutfeld said. "Which leads me to my last point: If you're hiring, if you’re the person doing the hiring, forgive a scar or two. Remember that when we were young, we were also idiots. There were just no cameras there to catch it."
