Unspoken Rules of Etiquette

(I'm sure I've spelt that wrong!)

So what "rules" do you have, what are your own personal "unspoken rules of etiquette"?

I have two that I can think of:

If there is a spare double seat on a bus .... you NEVER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE choose a seat next to someone.

If you are in a toilet (at work or other public place) and you have a dump you wait until the other person in the toilet has left before you come out of the cubicle. Ditto the other person stays in the cubicle if the "dumper" comes out first. We DO NOT need to know who's had a poo, eye contact does not need to made at the hand-dryer.


Any more?

Never 'visit' for a long time. Friends and family are like fish - lovely fresh, but they go off after a couple of days.

Unspoken Rules of Etiquette
Talking to a stranger on public transport is completely unacceptable behaviour - unless there is a problem with the transport! Then you are allowed to talk to your fellow passengers, provided it is only to moan about the problem.

But....should you see that person again on a later date, the previous conversation becomes null and void and it will once again be unacceptable to speak to them.

If at first you don't succeed, failure may be your style.

Gawd...I met one of my best friend from striking up a conversation on public transport! :-O
Weirdo's are people too!
And what about sweet little old ladies who ask about marmalade and stuff.
You CAN'T just ignore them!
yoikes...
What I can't abide, tho', is people talking loudly on mobiles on public transport.
'Hi..I'm on the bus.'...'I said I'M ON THE BUS'.......
AAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH...drives me menthol!

****Whispers**** I too met one of my friends on public transport, but we generally keep it quiet 'cos you can be committed for that round here.....

Always put the divider thingy between your shopping and the person's in front of you at the checkout - particularly if they are old - because they WILL ALWAYS joke that they are on a pension and cannot afford to pay for yours too. ha ha. (NOT) :ranting:

Sorry should this be in this thread or in a ranting thread??

When calling on a neighbour, one should knock or use the doorbell. Leering in through the sitting room window to make you jump out of your skin is not acceptable :ranting:


Oh it is such fun working from home :laugh:
