Random Rules for Myself

[*] Never take an elevator to the second floor

[*] If someone wants to go faster, let them pass

[*] Always pull the car up to the very end of the curb (never waste a parking spot)

[*] Don’t ask someone to do something you can easily do yourself

[*] Never correct someone’s pronunciation of a word with the more appropriate ethnic accentuation

[*] Be in the middle of a book at all times

[*] Unless it’s an atrocity, take responsibility for it. You’re probably more at fault than you know
