With the massive rise of ignorant and disrespectful inpiduals populating the world verbal spats and altercations
are inevitable. Contrary to popular belief, screaming obscenities and puffing your chest out as friends hold you back, doesnt reek of badass-ness. In fact, it looks rather foolish. If you consider the end result of a fight, is it ever good? Lets consider the possible outcomes:
You win the fight. Receive some high fives. It aint UFC, so you wont get a paycheck or anything. And now youve made an enemy 。
The cops come. You get arrested, which means fines, jail-time, etc。
You hit the other person in the wrong spot, accidentally doing significant and permanent damage. Now youre screwed。你一拳击中了对方要害，给人家造成了一辈子的伤害。这下你也完了。
The opponent hits you in the wrong spot, putting you on the receiving end of some serious damage. Now youre screwed。
You lose. Everyone witnessed you getting your ass kicked, and now youre ashamed。
They pull out a weapon and stab or shoot you. While Ive never been stabbed or shot, I hear it stings much worse than your ego would after simply walking away from a physical confrontation。
2. Poor hygiene.
As kids we often abhorred the concept of cleanliness. We relished wearing the same grass-stained, smelly pants for as long as possible. The thought of bathing made us shiver in our Velcro strapped shoes. Now, its a different story. Its remarkable how many folks out there seem to think that deodorant is optional. I mean, technically it is but it shouldnt be. They need laws enforcing this. If the pungent aroma of your body odor is burning nostrils, and causing eyes to water, you should receive some type of ticket. Stink needs repercussions just as much as loitering does。
Remember being five, and when your parents were talking to other grownups youd walk over mid-conversation, tug on their shirts and repeatedly call, Mom/Dad? Yeah that was improper then but you were five, so it was fathomable. Some people are incapable of comprehending the notion of waiting their turn to speak. When this happens, utilize the sarcastic old saying: I apologize, did the middle of my sentence interrupt the beginning of yours?
4. Social networking your relationship.
Its such a stereotypically high school thing to do. Notifying Facebook every time you and your significant other have a squabble is a perfectly idiotic combination of obnoxious and immature. Couples quarrels are normal, but your friends/family shouldnt be alerted about each one of them via Tweets and status updates. Yes, that includes the oh-so-subtle, back-and-forth song lyrics and quotes that are clearly projected at each other. Honestly it makes your relationship look shitty, and all of us wish youd break up。这么俗套的事情也只有高中的时候比较热衷罢了。要是你每次跟亲爱的他/他怄气就更新Facebook状况，简直是个傻瓜，既幼稚又令人讨厌。恋人吵架很正常，但你也没必要不断更新状况搅得亲朋好友不得安宁吧?哪怕你用歌词和引用之类的来含沙射影，也还是很烦人。而且说实在的，你这么做只会让人觉得你俩的关系很糟糕，还不如早些分手呢!
5. Mispronouncing pronounceable words. 拼错不该拼错的单词。
Calling spaghetti pasquetti isnt cute anymore. Speech impediments are one thing, but baby talk in an attempt to be adorable should stop entirely。
6. Picking your nose.
Seriously, just grab a tissue. If I walk in a room and you jerk your hand away from your face, then begin to roll something between your index finger and thumb, I know youre guilty。
By now youve likely experienced enough scenarios not going your way, to take a loss and keep things moving. Throwing fits, breaking stuff, screaming, and having an attitude when the going gets tough isnt going to solve anything. Circumstances may cause rough patches, but battle them head on. Dont sulk and act like a bratty toddler, having an outburst in the store cause their parents didnt buy em what they wanted. Also, breaking objects is a bad habit. Youll regret throwing and damaging your phone, or punching a hole in the wall once the anger wears off。
8. Sending friends to talk to girls for you.
I remember sending my friend over to ask a girl for her phone number. She gave a firm, No, and stated that if I wanted to approach her, I needed to do it myself. Mind you, this was in fifth grade. If a girl who hadnt reached her teens yet recognized a cowardly act, surely grown women will. Just man up, and go for it. The only thing worse than getting rejected is having to be informed of said denial by a middleman。我还记得自身曾让朋友向一个女孩要电话号码，女孩果断拒绝了，还说如果我想跟她交朋友，应该自身拿出行动来。不过，当时我才上五年级。我认为这么小的女孩都能看出我的怯懦，成熟女士必定也会。拿出男子汉的样子，自身行动起来!比起拒绝，更惨的是从其他人口中得知你出局了。
9. High school festivities.
If youre 20+ years of age, you should not be asking things like, Yo, where the graduation parties at?! Let it go. You had your four years to shine. The same thing goes for ex-athletes who attend games and critique the current team attempting to relive their glory days. Move on, find a hobby, and live a grown-up life。
