12 Social Rules to Help You Not Act Like a Complete Jerk

Are you ever waitingĀ foreverĀ in line at Starbucks only to have the person right in front of you order the most complicated thing ever and then not prepared to pay? Hello! You’ve been waiting in line for 15 minutes! Have your payment ready! I mean, come on! Or how about when a dude comes into the bathroom and uses the urinal right next to you when there are about 10 others he could use? Talk about awkward!

There are tons of unspoken yet obvious social rules that we humans abide by in order for things to function normally. Some of these are just common sense. Some of these are more complex, but we have them because politeness goes a long way. We’re supposed to hold doors for others, and only take up one parking space. These are the social rules we live by, and basically the main rule is just, don’t be a jerk! But alas, a lot of people don’t know these rules and kind of act like jerks.

Thankfully, Buzzfeed has taken care of that for us! Check out the video below and brush up on your social skills.
