Times are changing. A lot of the rules in our society, that were once very rigid, are now something that we hardly pay heed to. But while some rules and regulations, on what might be considered as good behavior, are obsolete now; there still exists a whole bunch of unspoken rule that one should follow.   These are rules that have a lot to do with commitment, gratitude, privacy and general courtesy. Here are 15 unspoken rules of courtesy that everyone should adhere to.

1. Fill up the tank

It’s the decent thing to do if you have to borrow a car.  They’re letting you cruise around in their car that costs a lot of money and you’re adding to the mileage and wear and tear of the vehicle.  The least you can do is stop by a gas pump and fill ‘er up.

2. No smoking sign

If you’re a smoker, look around you at the reactions of other before continuing to smoke.  Some people have a hard time breathing second-hand smoke, and you should be especially careful around babies and small children.  You should either throw those cigarettes away or move somewhere else if people are uncomfortable.
