The unwritten rule thread

Crossing the parking lot spaces while making one's own shortcut revokes the right to scowl at people impeding your progress driving according to the rules.

People with the least capability of understanding a technical explanation ask the most technical questions.

Those with the poorest taste in music have the loudest stereos.

Discuss.

You could change the thread title to "Nearly Unwritten"

Does that come from the movie Unthinkable? about the 4 nuclear bombs supposedly hidden around the us.

By "supposedly hidden", are you trying to say you know where they are?

You're a mod. You can fix the thread title.

When interest in soccer in the US is reaching a peak, the Men's National Team will make stupid mistakes and lose a match it could have won.

Unwritten rule...
Never get mad, throw tools, and hit inflated bike tire/wheel with heavy object... They bounce back better than you think!

If you have a retractable leash for your pet, and it is extended to ANY length past minimum, you automatically forfeit your right to complain about any other user of a MUP, sidewalk, trail, etc.

Would it be too much to ask if you at least flush your toilet before you call the plumber (of course this is moot if your toilet is plugged). Better yet, why don't you clean it, you know, pee stains off the rim and down the front crap crusty's off the inside.

I would be seriously embarrassed if I had to call a plumber and my toilet wasn't spotless. You should see some of these people who show me into their bathrooms to make repairs and they make a mad dash for the lid and flush lever at the same time while I am still at the doorway.

If going to a doctor please make sure you have bathed within the last 48hrs. Oh, and wear underwear also. If you are bringing your teenage daughter to a doctor, make sure she is not wearing a thong.

replace empty toilet paper roll before you leave the bathroom

on the same vein, never leave a copy machine empty - if you used the last of the paper, re-fill!

If you live with other people and nobody is home then you have the opportunity to get naked and do everyday things, when caught your excuse is simply the 'naked rule'.

Don't use the urinal immediately next to someone unless the rest are in use.
