There are certain unspoken rules in life that most people should know and live by, but we know all too well that most people don’t, and that’s particularly bothersome to a lot of folks.
So, what are these rules? Well, folks are sharing the ones they think are important thanks to a Reddit post that asked “What's an unspoken rule that annoys you when people don't know about it?"
- "Let people know when you have them on speakerphone! Especially when your husband/wife/partner/friend/any other human is within earshot."
- "Standing in doorways. Go in or out, but get out of the way."
- "You don't need to attach yourself to the person in front of you when standing in queue."
- "Standing in the middle of the supermarket aisle blocking the entire aisle with your cart/trolly while you stare at the shelf is not OK."
- "When someone hands you their phone to use, don't (bleeping) go through it. It's rude."
- "If someone pays for something for you, you really shouldn't make them ask you to pay them back. Ideally not even once, but especially not two or three times."
- "Turn signals. They're meant to be a warning, not an afterthought."
- "Stairs are for ascending and descending. Move out of the way when you are done using them. Standing in front of them and looking around like a lost tourist is not one of their functions."
- "Wait for others to exit an elevator or train before entering."
- "Don’t play music out loud from your mobile phones on public transportation. I get that you’re going to have a boring ride, but don’t ruin everyone else’s."
- "Don’t ask people to do their job for free, even if you’re friends or family."
