Abuse. Of any form- verbal, physical, emotional, etc. Drug abuse. Environmental abuse. Abuse of power.
Excuses. There’s no need to make a big production of every apology, a simple “I’m sorry” would suffice. (I’ll eventually ask questions, so save your explanations for later. Grin.)
Extravagance. I’m really okay with this but it's entirely another story if you sacrifice your - or your family's need over a want. And then PLEASE don’t tell me you’re broke
and don’t ask me to loan you some money when just the other day you were flaunting the Patek and Louis Vuitton bag you bought over the weekend.
- that presents/gifts should be expensive. (It need not be, but if it’s expensive and it’s for me then, thank you very much! Chuckle.) Seriously now, it shouldn’t necessarily be expensive, what’s important is the gesture.
- (or the cliche saying) that history repeats itself.
Expectation that we immediately, with just a blink of an eye, become experts (of whatever). Be considerate (am pretty sure it will be greatly appreciated if you give allowance for some mistakes).
Smoking in a public vehicle (hence, exposing non smokers to sidestream smoke). Again, please be considerate.
Speaking of consideration.. When I see a pregnant woman or an old woman standing in a public transportation while few feet away a number of beings belonging to the young and strong population sit comfortably. Have mercy.
Assumptions. Please spare me.
Flattery will get you anywhere. Please, please, I am begging you, please don’t.
