Re: Etiquette?

Oh I hate the honking in the driveway one!

Gentlemen walk on the street side of the footpath in case a car goes past and flings mud up on to your lady! Well you asked for old ones. Oh and what the one about peeing which rear wheel of a vehicle?????? Is it passenger or driver side?

I hate listening to peoples personal mobile phone conversations.

Standing up on a bus or train for those older or infirm etc.

Re: Etiquette?

On the subject of public buses:

When getting on- move to the back so that in the future other people will be able to get on. I don't know how many times I've missed a bus because it was 'full' only to see that the back was completely empty!

Re: Etiquette?

When ending a phone conversation say "good-bye". Just don't hang up. Its rude.

When eating supper with your family and or friends don't start eating until everyone is seated.

Ask to be excused from the table at your parents house. Even if you are an adult.

Don't put your feet on the chairs at a resturant.

Don't swear. Unless you are fishing/ hunting.

Re: Etiquette?

As a really slow eater I hate being in a restaurant - or anywhere, and having all the plates cleared away bar mine and I'm still eating.

Re: Etiquette?

Always walk to on your lady's left side so can draw your sword without hitting her and be in the proper position to fend off her attackers.

Re: Etiquette?

Put your weights away.

Don't use a power rack or squat cage for anything other than squatting, rack deadlifting, and overhead movements.

If you fall down after your set, please be kind and mop up the sweat stain on the floor.

Don't stare too much.

I'll think of some more related to the gym. I'm pretty uncultured on the other stuff although my mother beat most of the pleasantrys into me as a child.

All the best,
Arden

Re: Etiquette?

I hope everyone's reading everyone else's ideas and realizing how subjective etiquette is.

AMEN, arden. Leave No Trace (LNT) for the gym environment....that is, leave the place better than you found it!!!!!!

Rerack your weights. Even better, organize them a little bit.

Respect the equipment. Most of the stuff in a gym is REALLY hard to break...but you get the idea.

Respect other visitors. They have the same right to be in the gym; that includes asking people if they're done with their set before jumping on the equipment and being willing to provide a spot (as long as you're not in the middle of a WOD).

OMG me too. Everyone finishes and I'm like halfway through. That's the reason if I get my food early I just start eating before everyone else especially if we're in a rush.


Brandon: I agree. I definitely try to be considerate and polite with everything I do (fail a lot), and that's good enough for me (I think -_-).
