People Are Sharing The Unwritten Rules Of Life, And I Never Thought Of These

FOLLOW THESE!

On Tuesday, Reddit user u/0_7_0 asked, "What is one 'unwritten rule' that you believe everyone should know and follow?" People responded with a bunch of valuable tidbits we all should listen to.

Here's what they said:

1. "If I show you a picture on my phone, don't go swiping sideways."

u/Soft-Problem

2. "If you borrow something, return it in the same condition."

u/Ryastor

3. "Stand back before boarding a bus, subway, metro, or elevator so that those on can get off quickly without having to wait for you to back up first."

u/Lightmareman

4. "Don't watch loud videos on your phone at a restaurant. Can't believe this isn't common courtesy anymore."

u/penguinmanbat

5. "The last one to go to bed has to turn all the lights off."

u/Rebeca2277

6. "Just because you know someone who does something for a living, that doesn't automatically mean they owe you a discount if you ask for their services."

u/mstaff388

7. "If someone is giving you a ride, you should be ready at the door before they get there. It’s so rude to have someone waiting on you when they are doing you a favor by picking you up."

u/Thatweirdboringdude

8. "If someone is wearing headphones and is clearly keeping to themselves, leave them the fuck alone!"

u/Thetiredregular

9. "Quit pissing on public toilet seats. And if you do, at least have the decency to wipe it up."

u/wSkkHRZQy24K17buSceB

10. "The 'wave' of thank you when someone lets you in while driving in traffic. It's just polite."

u/dishyboii

11. "On an escalator, stand on the right so people can walk on the left."

u/ChicagoSocs

12. "If you are going to talk with someone about your problems/issues, do a quick check-in first. Like, 'Are you in a good space for me to talk this out with you?' I’ve used it a few times, and I think just the basic courtesy of asking is such a relief to people!"

u/lucille1234

13. "Re-rack your weights."

u/slappa_mitch

14. "When someone else is paying the bill, you shouldn't order something very pricey. (It's understandable if something expensive is the only thing you are able to eat.)"

u/yomomma1000

15. "When you are shopping/looking for clothes and suddenly decide you don't want it anymore, put it back where you found it. Don't just dump it somewhere — it makes life hard for both workers who are cleaning up and the customers looking for something to buy."

u/i_dunno_mate_159

16. "When walking through a store, treat the aisles like lanes on a road. Keep to the right."

u/Bacondaddy199
