Respecting personal space. Particularly MY personal space.

I think it might be time to review some personal space guidelines. Some of the people I run into just don’t seem to have a solid grasp on the concept.

1. If I don’t know you, don’t hug me. If I do know you, please limit the hugging to once a month.
2. If we are talking, do not punctuate your statements by touching or slugging me on the arm.
3. Meeting you by chance with little possibility of ever having contact with you again in the future does not meet my requirements of a Facebook friend.
4. If I am the only one sitting in a restaurant, do not sit in the booth next to mine, facing me, unless you plan on starting up a conversation.
5, If you walk into the restroom and I am the only person currently using one of the stalls, do not pick the stall right next to mine. If you do end up picking the stall next to me, do not strike up a conversation.

  1. I call #5 the “Double Dump”…When one party uses a urinal or stall right next to yours with little consideration of your comfort level…Two stalls / urinals between each and every person in the restroom…Even if this involves causing one’s own personal pain and/or embarrassment. I can go all day on the weird shit I encounter DAILY in public restrooms.

    • I forgot about the urinal! There is a bar near us with a small bathroom and two urinals side by side that are so close together that you are pretty much rubbing elbows with the person next to you. I won’t go if one is occupied.

      • Wise choice. If elbows are rubbing, far other more sensitive pieces of equipment are in too close of proximity. Best of luck in your bathroom adventures!
