Group Therapy: What Rule Did Your Parents Teach You That No One Else Seems to Follow?
Some rules you were taught during childhood still apply to your adult life… and doesn’t it bug you when you see people your age unaware of these small, but wonderfully welcome, bits of etiquette? It’s like the world is full of Mr. Bungles every time you turn around.
Well, Reddit.com asked their users what rule they were taught as a child, but no one else seems to follow, and here are some of the best responses:
1. If you’re a guest in someone’s home, make sure you don’t leave any traces that you were there.
2. Don’t slam doors when it’s late.
3. Don’t talk about a party in front of someone who’s not invited.
4. Be grateful for the gifts you get, even if you don’t like them.
5. When you drop someone off, make sure they get inside safely before you drive away.
6. Never show up to someone’s party empty handed.
7. Push your chair back under the table when you get up.
8. Ask before you touch something. That includes someone’s dog, baby, pregnant belly, body, whatever.
