A Reddit user asked the internet 'what is one unwritten rule that you believe everyone should know' and got some amazing response.
User u/0_7_0 posed the question to the Reddit userbase on Tuesday (13 July) and received over 3,000 comments and 4,000 likes.
The collective wisdom of Reddit has come up with 16 life rules which must be adhered to at all costs.
Number one: "Don't watch loud videos on your phone at a restaurant. Can't believe this isn't common courtesy anymore."
Number two: "Let us get off the lift/train before you try to barge on ffs."
As anyone who's ever used the London Underground will know, this is a common problem.
Number three focused on respecting people's privacy: "If I show you a picture on my phone, don't go swiping sideways."
Someone hilariously replied: "My professor did this and saw a picture of my junk."
Yes, perhaps best to keep your junk photos in the junk folder maybe?
Number four was pretty basic: "If you borrow something, give it back in the same condition."
While number five appeared to come from bitter experience: "Just because you know someone who does something for a living that doesn't automatically mean they owe you a discount if you ask for their services."
Number six: "The last one to go to bed has to turn the light off."
That one's for all the dads at home that complain if a light is turned on the house looks like 'Blackpool Illuminations'.
Number seven for the gym goers: "Re-rack your weights."
Number eight: "If someone is giving you a ride you should be ready at the door before they get there. It's so rude to have someone waiting on you when they are doing you a favor by picking you up."
I mean, I'm definitely not the person that says that they're around the corner when they're still 10 minutes away.
Number nine: "Buy a plunger before you need a plunger."
Let's not think about that one for too long.
Number ten is one for the gents among us: "Quit pissing on public toilet seats."
While number 11 is for the introverts: "If someone is wearing headphones and is clearly keeping to themselves, leave them the f*** alone!"
Number 12: "When you have a complaint with a retail store or business, please remember that the person you are speaking too (or yelling at sadly) is just the one that happened to pick up the phone or is standing at the till.
"They likely have nothing to do with what went wrong and have little sway in what can be done to help. They don't need to be yelled and screamed at for something they did not do or is under the control of a corporate office/higher up."
This one is probably the most sensible response out of the lot.
Number 13: "When you are shopping/looking for clothes and suddenly decide you don't want it anymore, put it back where you found it.
"Don't just dump it somewhere - it makes life hard for both workers who are cleaning up and the customers looking for something to buy."
Yes, we are all excited to be coming out of a pandemic and can't wait to go Primark again but let's remember to keep it tidy.
Number 14: "The 'wave' of thank you when someone lets you in while driving in traffic. It's just polite." Agreed.
Number 15: "On an escalator stand on the right so people can walk on the left."
And finally, number 16: "Put the shopping cart back where it GOES!" Yup, will do.
