18 Lessons Every Parent Should Teach Their Kids

Don’t be rude, you little twits. Some adults could still stand to learn these, actually.

1. When the toilet paper runs out, replace it.

Don’t leave the person after you to fend for themselves mid-squat.

Have some self-respect.

18. If someone invites you to a party where they’ll be feeding your ass, then bring a little something in return.

Like wine, or a belly button lint brush.

Because if you are rude and exhibit any of these behaviors, this is what people will think of you.
