Outlawed, Now and Forever

Public whistling

Cleaning one's nose in public

Using hand or wrist as kleenex

Smacking noises whilst chewing gum

Any noise whilst chewing gum

Playing "see food"

Eating with elbows, forearms or chest on the table

Saying, "to be honest with you" (reveals that person lies anytime this is not said)

Leaving residual toothpaste smears in lavatory bowl

Public whistling

I always hear *I'm not going to lie to you*. That translates into *everything that is about to come out of my mouth IS a lie*.

Perhaps you read my recent post on "Now, don't take this personally..." which is along the same lines.

Otherwise, Cass you are very strict! I'm afraid you will think I'm a total bumpkin when we meet in May! ;-)

I'm leaning on my computer desk, elbows, forearms, chest, picking my nose while chewing gum noisily. I can't whistle or I would, thinking "Whew, glad she can't see me now."

Saying "no problem" instead of "you're welcome."

Nightwoodkitty, amen.

Strict, RevMomCheese? You a bumpkin? I'm sure you are not!
I'm excited about the Festival O'Homies!

Aola! Cute!

I like this list very much. I would just as soon ban gum altogether.

Quotidian Grace said...

Can we ban the response "whatever"?

cheesehead said...

Ban gum? Are you crazy?

Whatever...

I don't think I want to know what you find in the bath.
