ALL THE DOS AND DON'TS OF THE MODERN WORLD, WRITTEN BY ANYONE WHO LIVES IN IT

A sneeze is paralyzing, and when someone comes out of it alive, the least you could do is bless her soul back into her body.

If someone is sneezing, understand that her heart is seizing up, her eyes are shut, and she’s at her most physically vulnerable for at least a second.

All bathrooms should contain a type of air freshners (spray, candles, or plug-ins). Particularly bathrooms in a high traffic area or guest

you ABSOLUTELY MUST SAY “THANK YOU” WHEN SOMEONE ELSE HOLDS THE DOOR FOR YOU.

When one, two, three, four people have walked through the door without so much as a NOD of graciousness, I go insane. I wasn't hired by the entire St. Patrick’s Day Parade as an inanimate door stop for their coffee break at Starbucks. I do not just stand in doorways for fun.

If you don't want drama when splitting the bill tell the server at the beginning, ‘We’ll have separate checks for this bill.’

Respect the fact that sidewalks are two-way streets

If your group is larger than two, congrats (there's no way you like more than one person in it). No matter your relations, respect my right to walk alone, unimpeded, in the other direction and don't spill more than two wide.

Always put in a few dollars more than you owe when splitting the check with more than 3 people. Because inevitably someone will underpay.

Don't text me that you 'totally just saw my twin' if you didn't take a picture

I need a picture so I know whether you think I'm hot or not

Don't drop TV/Movie/Book Spoilers in casual conversation until said show/movie is at least week old. (And books never)

Conversely don't get pissed off if someone mentions a spoiler about something like The Wire. You had plenty of time to watch it.

Find a mentor ASAP

This goes for any station in life, but your college experience will be worth the investment if you find a trusted professor or upperclassman who can tell it like it was when they were in your spot.

People are informally allowed a two-foot radius of empty space that strangers should not cross.

Sometimes, when I’m standing in line, the eager person behind me moves forward so quickly, before I know it, I’m wearing said person as a backpack.

Text someone the day before you have plans to make sure it's still on.

More often than not, we actually love when plans are cancelled on us. Checking in the day before gives each party a chance to back out drama-free.

Don't ask me in-depth questions about my job on the weekends

It's the weekend. I only have 48 hours to take my mind off of work, let's not give it the time of day. Better yet, let's not talk about jobs at all. Unless your a stuntman. Or Beyonce.
