Default Things you shouldn't have to tell people

Old thread closed, so hopefully I'm okay to start a new one.

TYSHTTP: It defeats the purpose of weight control pet food to free feed as much as the pet wants.

My vet often recommends a small amount Cheerios a day as a replacement treat for overweight dogs. One of our clients took this advice to heart- she proudly brought us a picture of her dog with it's whole head inside a cereal box, chowing down.

For a second or two I forgot what Cheerios are in the US. In Australia they are cocktail sausages, popular at children's parties. I was wondering why this would be considered diet food for dogs.

1. The restaurant is loud and we're already having trouble hearing each other. Holding your hand in front of your mouth while you're talking makes it even harder to hear you. Stop it. (I had to tell my 71YO brother this Saturday).

2a. Don't walk backwards. You can't see where you're going.
2b. Before boarding an elevator, look to see if people are trying to get off, and let them get off before you get on.
2c. Absolutely do not walk backwards into an elevator. See 2a and 2b. ETA: Also, this.

And if it's really windy and cold and you are walk/running backwards because it's a little easier to take at least have the common sense not to do it with headphones on because that's why you didn't hear the angry lady who finally had to resort to shouting at you and then had to grab you by the shoulder before you plowed into the elderly woman trying to progress up the sidewalk with a walker.

I broke one of my standing rules and read the comments. Some of them were actually pretty funny!

As a tangential note: in the german dub of the movie "Best Little Whorehouse in Texas", the songs were not dubbed (of course) but subtitled. When Burt Reynolds sang "Sneaking Around", the cheerios part of "I like beer and rodeos, detective books and dominoes, football games and cheerios..." was translated as "big hellos", as in the english greeting/farewell of "Cheerio, old chap." Only once I moved into the USA and saw actual Cheerios did I realize what he was singing about.

To friend of a relative of mine posting on FB, sorry Charlie, if you get all hurt and sad because you are being described as a racist "just because of the man I voted for" well tough noogies. You are judged by the company you keep.

ETA: I'm sure there were Germans in the '30s who said the same thing....
