@MrsPanda99:  I think we are living in an increasingly narcissistic society.  Everyone is “ME ME ME!!!” and I think, as a whole, we’d be doing a lot better if every once in a while people stopped to think about how their actions or words will impact other people.

Also, I love your posts 🙂

@MrsPanda99:  +1 to all of these! I’ll have to come back when I think up some of my own rules 🙂

If there are lots of empty seats on the bus/train/whatever, DO NOT sit in the one next to me! There’s just no need! 

Urgh. Sorry, my pet peeve.

Because today this matters to me.

In the rain pay attention to where your car is displacing dirty, muddy road water. Because chances are the people on the pavement DO NOT want to wear said muddy smelly water all day at work.

use your turn signal ALL THE TIME. not sometimes, not when  you feel like it. All the time.

don’t ever walk into any service establishment or pull up to a drive through window on the phone or with your headset on and music turned up. always be prepared to hear and speak to the people that are caring for you. common courtesy.

For the love of god, the workplace refrigerator is not a free-for-all.

@Glasgowbound:  Yes – and if there are no cars about, be nice and let the pedestrians know what you are doing because they don’t want to get squashed either.

Just because you are mad at the world, it does not give you the right to literally push me (a complete stranger) out of your way.

I had this happen at a club last weekend (my bachelorette party).  I’m assuming this girl was storming out of the club dragging her boyfriend with her and as she walked past me, she grabbed my arm and shoved me to the side.  I wasn’t even in her way, and if she’d only been walking slower, she would have took my clutch to the head. 🙂

Don’t trespass on other people’s property, even if it is just to use their driveway as a short cut. It’s rude.

@MrsPanda99:  Ugh. Agree with all of yours! 

My daily commute consists of being squished on the tube, but I always have my headphones in and read my Kindle. You KNOW that of the 300 people in the carriage, I’m the one the lost person tries to ask for directions. I’m busy!

* If you are in a movie theater, bus, train, airplane, quiet restaurant, please be aware of your surroundings and talk with your inside voice. Nobody wants to listen to your love life, gossip and what is going on in your life.

Sadly, common courtesy and common sense are anything but common. Use them anyway. Hold  the door for the lady with a giant stroller and 3 shopping bags. Let the guy only buying milk at the grocery store go ahead when you know you’re going to take forever. Being a decent human being is one of the easiest ways to brighten someone’s day.
