Family stunned after ‘ridiculous’ amount of rules are plastered all over holiday property

Now, whenever you go on a trip you can always expect a few rules here and there that aren't too unreasonable.

From check-in and check-out times to a strictly no parties policy - some rules aren't the worst thing in the world to follow.

But, for one family, their holiday property seemed to be totally plastered in 'ridiculous' commands instructing guests exactly what they could and couldn't do when staying over.

One woman, Becky Levin Navarro, took to TikTok to share with her 10.8k followers the latest run-in she had during a trip.

She captioned the short clip: "Y’all I dont get it.

"The rules displayed all over the house just killed me. It seemed like every room and every surface had a note."

Becky continued: "It almost felt like it wasn’t a vacation with So. Many. Rules."


Yep - in the video alone there were 11 rules all written in scary capital letters with underlined words and highlighted phrases to really hammer the military tone of voice.

In the TikTok, the overlay text read: "Is there a cap on how many rules can be displayed..."

Becky then gave her followers a tour of the abode with each room and surface being punctuated with a different command.

The first saw a sign stuck to a wooden cabinet which read: "Antique and fragile. Please do not attempt to open or pull on knobs."


The next sign was attached to what looked like a room divider.

"Decorative piece only," it stated. "Do not touch or move for any reason. I am 10,000 years old and will break if you look at me the wrong way."

Very odd, but whatever.


The third was about the sleeping situation with a note beside a bed commanding: "Absolutely no jumping on beds. Any breakage of beds will be immediately passed to renters."

Guests were also informed a particular set of shelves were 'owners use only'.

Coming in at number five was a rule regarding kitchen appliances which explained: "Microwave is automatic. Do not pull open or push to close."

They even had a rule for a cleaning with the sixth note reading: "Please do not clean marble countertops or appliances with any abrasives.


"Please only use soap and water spray bottle provided below sink."

Oh and it didn't stop there.

The seventh note informed guests that they would need to 'leave all furniture and bedding in respective rooms in houses were originally found' upon departure.

"This was our grandmother's table," was the eighth note which added: "Please be kind to it and use a placemat."

Another cleaning rule echoed a previous point: "For stains, Incredible is located under sink or just use soap and water."

Assuming that's a specific cleaning product.

The next one is just outright ridiculous, showing the words 'do not touch' printed on a label stuck to a plant pot containing a flipping cactus.

And last - but by no means least - is the final rule on the rundown stuck to a door handle with read: "Do not turn lever."

The TikTok has since gone viral after clocking up more than 4.9 million views, over 343.7k likes and nearly 10k comments since it was first posted back in June.

People clearly couldn't wait to share their reactions to the video with one TikTok user writing: "Too many rules, it will just stress me out and defeats the purpose of a vacation, which should be relaxing."

A second joked: "Someone was excited to use their new laminating machine."

Others, however, didn't see what the big fuss was about with one hitting out: "These are all reasonably understandable."

They continued: "I don't see anything wrong honestly."

What do you make of it?
