People.... when eyes are upon us... pull it together. Yes we all need to be ourselves, no matter who is in company but let's exercise a slight amount of decorum. Let's at least try, or let's at least try to be cognizant of others in our surroundings. It's so simple, so human. Try. For me. For us all. Thank you.

Redditor u/ItsTreDay wanted discuss the behaviors when amongst proper society by asking..... What's an unspoken social rule that you feel people need to be reminded about?


Just Stop.

Giphy

I don't care if it's the road, the sidewalk, the grocery store aisle or a hiking trail through the mountains: if you're going to stop, pull over. autoposting_system

Just be Curtious....

If you can't make it, give a little common courtesy and let them know ahead of time. th3_warth0g

I have patients not turn up for their appointments all the time. So frustrating. Someone else could have had that appointment time. I've made the stuff up for the test and now it's wasted. Some are sick and I get it, but call! Even if it's 10 mins before you are suppose to be there. I could have gone and got a coffee instead of standing around waiting for you. Eevee027

I came here to say this!!

Wait for people to get OFF the elevator before you bum rush your way on!!! Funke-munke

I came here to say this. I work on elevators, so I take them constantly. Even in hospitals and courthouses where you'd expect manners to be acknowledged, people bum rush the doors. It's not going anywhere people. If the doors begin to close, wave your hand. If it's too close and you don't feel comfortable, press the hall call button again. The car doors will open even if they have closed (unless it's moving,) but they're typically going to stay open 4 seconds at least. eatmoarpotatos

Be Well...

Only because it's someone's job doesn't mean you shouldn't say thank you. the_onetrueking

This one time the dude that was bagging my groceries said "I'm doing my job don't say thank you" right as i was opening my mouth to thank him so i said "thank you for doing your job well" and felt super smooth. thwinks

No Touch.

If you live with roommates, don't touch/move/eat anything that isn't yours without permission. ZidaneTilAlexandros

Unless they leave their clothes in the dryer for more than a few hours, then you burn them. Ps- am a student can confirm this is proper etiquette. Funnybot9980

Side by Side....

If you're walking down a hall side by side, be aware of your surroundings so you don't block people moving faster behind you. CIA_grade_LSD

This goes for anywhere frankly. Just be aware of your surroundings in general. especiallythegrocerystore!!! IAMG222

"one second, I have a question" 

Your phone should always be on mute on conference calls unless you're actively engaged in the conversation. Always. maybelying

Better test case: Something people could be reasonable expected to respond to, like "one second, I have a question" rather than something they might politely ignore. (Nothing wrong with how you're doing it, just sympathetic anxiety on my part about whether or not it's on mute for that.) Ficulinean

Silence Please. 

Some people like to be left alone whilst on their work break. Perhaps have brought headphones, are enjoying food or reading something.

They're using their 15, 30 or however many minutes to briefly get away from work, that includes you, potentially annoying coworker. amiilia

Don't stop for a conversation at the top/bottom of an escalator. doradiamond

I had to shove a woman out of the way because her and her friend stopped right at the top to look in her handbag.

There were people behind me and I didn't have a choice. She didn't get why stopping at the top was so dangerous and yelled at me for it 🤷♀️. Reddit

So.... RUUUUUDDDEEEE!!!

Don't cut in line. Your time is not more important. dabears1979

Christmas is upon us. It's time to get those Christmas present lists together.

So... who has been naughty and who has been nice?

Who is getting diamonds and who is getting coal? Yuck, coal. Is that even a thing anymore? Who even started that idea?

There has to be some funnier or more "for the times" type of "you've been naughty" stocking stuffer.

I feel like the statement coal used to make is kind of last century at this point.

Apparently I'm not alone in this thinking.

I admit, I love my stuffed animals. They're the best.

Some of them have been with me for years and I have them proudly displayed in different spots around my apartment. And when I've packed them for a move, I've done so with all the tender loving care I can muster.

What is it about them that stirs up these feelings?

Believe it or not, it's quite possible to form emotional attachments to inanimate objects!

They say your 30's hits different, like one day you're young a hopeful and the next day you're just WAY too old for this.

What is the "this" you're suddenly too old for?

No idea. It's different for everyone, but make no mistake, it'll happen to you too.

Maybe it already has?

Do all mothers go to the say mom school or something? Because they seem to share the same advice or go on the same platitudes, don't they?

Here's an idea.

Maybe they're just older, have more experience, and are trying to keep us from being dumbasses in public. At least, that's what I think.

I'm definitely grateful for my mother's advice—it's saved me more than once—and it seems many out there are too. And they all seem to have heard the same things from their mothers, too.
