In the Blog World:
- It's rude to ask someone to do a paid sponsorship with you and then bash them on Twitter. Whether or not you started it, participating in it is just as bad. I know I can have my rawr moments, but this is just something I would never do. It's unprofessional. Once you open up your blog to paid sponsorships or to working with brands you just turned it into a business and should treat it that way. I would never ever think to bash any of the ladies on the right hand side of my page. If you are looking to do a paid sponsorship, these two ladies have been a pleasure to work with both on the business front and on a personal level.
- It's rude to email someone and tell them that their wedding is going to be tacky. I had promised y'all that I would take you though the steps as I was planning my wedding. This included brain storming. I'm not the girl who has has been dreaming about her wedding day her whole life. So I blogged, and tweeted my random thoughts and questions. Yes, my ideas were all over the place there are lots of possibilities with weddings - then the email came and I stopped it all. Sorry, promise broken. Rude, just plain rude.
- It's rude to tell people what they should and should not be blogging about on their own blog. It's their little space to do with what they want. If they want to post a million photos of their child, animal, or a freaking pet rock... by golly they should be able to do it. You don't have to read it. Some people love wedding blogs, some people love Mommy blogs, some people love fashion blogs, ... you get my point? This kinda goes for twitter too. Unfollow them, and if they blast you for it... it's kinda embarrassing for them, not you.
- It's rude not to let someone out of the elevator before you get on. I understand you may be in a rush to get to where you're going... but I kinda need to get out of the elevator before you head down/up! Unless you're trying to kidnap me.
- It's rude to speed up when someone puts on their signal. You may be in a hurry to get where you're going, but that person may have a true emergency.(credit BFF: Shellie) & in all honesty you're not going to get to your destination that much later by letting me in.
- It's rude not to tip the take-out person at a restaurant. I used to be a waitress and bartender. Typically the bartender will be responsible for take-out orders. Tip them! Especially if the take-out person is not the bartender. They make sure that your order is correct, that you have napkins and silverware and usually they aren't working any tables.
- It's rude to tap your glass or shake your glass if/when you need a refill. I was out the other day eating and I saw this, I swear daggers flew out of my eyes. A simple "excuse me" when a waiter walkers by is sufficient.
Have you had some of these thoughts lately? Do you agree with me, disagree with me?
