My dude and I have been gleefully reading through Tim Gunn’s book Gunn’s Golden Rules: Life’s Little Lessons for Making It Work together in the evenings, and besides being deliciously catty, it’s also a nicely updated general guide to decent manners in a contemporary world. He swears you can wear white after Labor Day and doesn’t give a rat’s ass if you chew gum in church.
But Gunn Almighty does have a few rules about treating people decently, and they got me thinking. What is the one Thou Shalt NOT you absolutely can’t abide others breaking around you? There are, admittedly, a lot of small trespasses that ruffle my feathers, but the one that makes me absolutely boil is when people cut in line or refuse to acknowledge that there even IS a line. What about you?
