    Our comment section *popped off* with more great nuggets of wisdom. So here are some more rules we should all be following:

    1. "Don’t make fun of the way people pronounce words! Either your language is their second language, or they learned the word by reading, both of which are to be commended."

    2. "When riding an escalator, stand to the right so the people who want to walk can do so on the left."
