20 Rules I've Broken
Don’t say “shut up” in the house.
Come to school on time.
Do your homework.
Listen and pay attention in class.
Say “hello” to people you know.
Wear gloves when baking or cooking.
Don’t eat raw cookie dough even though it tastes good.
When you do something, stick to it.
Don’t fight fire with fire. It makes a bigger fire.
Put equal amounts on your plate, because you might not eat it all.
Use your “inside voice”.
Pay back money you’ve borrowed.
Don’t walk out on someone during a conversation.
Watch television from a distance.
Don’t throw something across the room unless you want to hurt someone.
Straighten your hair if it’s frizzy.
Try not to laugh at the misfortunes of others. It just might come back to you.
Mind your own business.
