Things we teach children that we don't do as adults.

  1. Cross at the Crosswalk
    My last apartment overlooked a busy main road, every non holiday weekend was good for about 4 car accidents, at least once every few months 1 pedestrian was hit. Over the coarse of 12 years not one of those occurred near a crosswalk.
  2. Exit a burning building in a calm and orderly fashion
    This one I think is just for practice. I'm pretty sure if the real shit hit the real fan no one is calmly strolling out the exit doors. Granted I'm gathering this opinion from two sources 1. If I were in a burning building, I'm running! As fast and as far as my body will allow me. 2. Die Hard: With a Vengeance
  3. Respect our elders
    Unless this rule naturally expires at 21 I'm coloring this one complete Bullshit. Respect is something that you earn and I've seen my fair share of elderly folk whom have the over entitled, impatient, selfishness that's commonly associated with someone from "My Super Sweet Sixteen" Outside of them we still treat our "Greatest" generation like a huge burden. What it looks like to me is when we tell children to respect our elder's we mean "US" and that's it.
  4. Wait in line, wait our turn
    Have you ever been waiting on a Delicatessen Line for a long time with a ticket in your hand, and when your number gets called right before you get to respond someone pipes up and says "I don't have a number, but I'm next." No, you are not ! if you didn't get a ticket You're not waiting in line, you're just loitering.
  5. Make eye contact/put down phone when speaking face to face with someone else.
    I assume these are the people who are really brave online but they're social fucktards© just about everywhere else. You know, the one's who's twitter profile pics is the "Don't Tread On Me" or Confederate flags. Real Life Trolls I'm saying. The kind that if they're on your side of any online debate, you wish they weren't. That's who I imagine they are. Because then it's not rude. We should be grateful they braved leaving the comfort of their parents basement to attempt human interaction.
  6. Holding a door open for a stranger
    If you have never experienced this one Congratulations most people think you are exceptionally hot, and I apologize on behalf of all men for the inevitable creepy comment headed your way as you walk passed the person who's holding the door for you. And shame on the creep who held the door open under false pretenses. You should hold the door open ulterior motive free because it's the right thing to do.
  7. Say thank you when someone does hold a door open for you.
    Whether you're hot or not I'll hold the door for you creepy comment free. The least you could do is acknowledge that not everyone realizes not every door works by electric.

  9. Stop complaining about what you don't have, and be grateful for what you do have
    Have you ever been in an establishment that offers free WI-FI and that WI-FI craps out and someone (who isn't literally a child) has a meltdown in public? They act like its a personal attack and aimed at ruining their lives. All you have to do is switch back to 4G, continue with Candy Crush and STFU. You're not entitled to their Wi-Fi. What? Is is some BS that YOU have to pay in a place that says "Free" SOLUTION: put your phone away. Remember they pay for that free Wi-Fi, cut em some slack.
