People Explain Which Rules They Wish Everyone Would Follow

People who cut the queue are going to hell, but they wouldn't if they just stopped their indecent behavior.

The same goes for people who leave their shopping carts in open parking lots rather than return them to the corral, and those who don't know how to merge onto the freeway.

"You can make everyone follow one rule you make: What is it?" –– This was today's burning question from Redditor Lord_Smile, and needless to say, people went wild. Turns out there's a lot out there that bothers us.


"No speakerphone..."

No speakerphone in public.

"Service employees..."

Giphy

Service employees are now legally required to physically fight one customer a day.

"If you throw your butts..."

If you throw your butts out the car window, a mysterious, compelling force will cause you to retrieve them and stick them up your bumhole.

PanickedPoodle

"News stories..."

News stories have to be 100% unbiased and truthful.

"When you make a mistake..."

When you make a mistake, quickly take ownership, apologize and make right where possible.

On the counter: forgive that which is done wrong and don't make forgiveness conditional on atonement or apology.

JewsEatFruit

"LITERRING..."

LITTERING WILL BE CONSIDERED A HATE CRIME AGAINST EARTH.

BWIPPS

"Every sentence..."

Every sentence must be finished with a noun that has absolutely nothing to do with the sentence spoken. (eg: Hey Billy, how's work been thermostat?) (eg: Little Darla hurt her knee when she fell off the swings death penalty.)

ErsatzCaptain

"I command everyone..."

I command everyone to consider how their actions will affect those around them.

ELPWork

Everyone must wash their hands every time they use the toilet ... yes, even you, Mr "I don't pee on my hands so I don't need to wash them."

davidtcook

"Everyone has to..."

Everyone has to use the metric system.

You know what would be great?

If society could just stop with arbitrary dress codes. If you're not working with the public, why should you have to dress up so much? If you're a police officer, then it makes sense that you'd wear a uniform that identifies you as a police officer. If you're Ted from IT who sits in the backroom all day, I really don't see why you have to come in every day in a suit and tie.

Let's just toss them out, shall we?

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor Levels2ThisBrush asked the online community,

"What should be socially acceptable but isn't?"

People Share Their Best 'F**k This, I'm Outta Here' Experiences

As much as many of us don't like to disrupt the status quo, there is only so much time a person can tolerate a miserable situation before things become so unbearable that they ultimately have to peace out.

For some people, it takes a while for them to reach a breaking point. Eventually, there comes a time when they realize their self-worth is more important than continuing to please others who don't appreciate them for the sake of keeping up with appearances.

As we enter into the summer months, people now have to decide whether or not they want their morning coffee to be hot or iced.

Lucky for them, it's delicious either way.

One could make an argument that foods that are equally delicious hot or cold are perhaps the best, or at least the most reliable.

And this can include foods which are not customarily sold both hot and cold (cold pizza anyone?).

Redditor NectarineOther4989 was curious to hear which foods people enjoy either hot or cold, leading them to ask:

"What is something that tastes good both hot and cold?"

People Dispel Common Hoaxes Some Folks Still Believe

Those who are truly superstitious have trouble shaking off customs which others might find somewhat silly.

These include holding your breath when passing a cemetery, throwing salt over your shoulder after spilling it, or not stepping on cracks for fear of breaking their mother's backs.

But even though it has been irrefutably proven that there is absolutely no validity to these superstitions, these same people will likely never stop performing these customs.

Nor will some others ever stop believing myths and hoaxes which have likewise proven to be one-hundred percent false.

Redditor Jimbo_Jigs was curious to learn the things people will never stop believing, despite ample evidence to the contrary, leading them to ask:

"What is proven to be a hoax but people still believe it to be true?"
