10 ways to s
top being an a*****e make the world a better place:
Do not, under any circumstances make the mistake of thinking that others enjoy the music, movie or video game blaring from your phone in a public place. Trust me, we don’t. Headphones were made for a reason, use them and use them often.
Hang up the phone and actually engage with the cashier who is ringing you up. Seriously, put down the phone and join the human race.
Hold the door for the person behind you, or say thank you if it’s is held for you. If a verbal expression is just too much to handle, than at least crack a smile and give a head nod.
If you’re stopped at a light in the far right lane and need to be turning left, don’t hold everyone up trying to get over after the light turns green. Just go through and turn around at the next light. By the way, no one cares if you’re running late.
Take an extra 3 seconds out of your life to put the divider bar down behind your groceries in the checkout line. I know this can be difficult because you might actually make eye contact with the person behind you, but give it a go any way.
Don’t hog up an extra seat in a crowded waiting area by insisting your bags stay on the empty one next to you and certainly don’t lay your body down across a row of 6 seats. I don’t care how tired you are, that’s cause for a public flogging
There are very few reasons to bring a baby to a movie theater. Play it safe and just don’t do it. The baby will thank you for it, we all will.
Watching your kids practice their pile driver wrestling skills in your living room can be entertaining. Not so much at a restaurant, make them stop.
Don’t go barefoot on an airplane. Just because no one ever told you your feet smell doesn’t mean they don’t.
You may think getting a 6am start on a Saturday to attack that dead tree in the yard with your new chainsaw is a great idea, but your neighbors most certainly will not. If you enjoy being known as the Village Idiot than by all means carry on.
Ok, off my soapbox now. Feel free to add to the list in the comments.
