What’s one socially acceptable behavior that you wish didn’t exist?

lt nickTexting. If you’re having a meal with somebody and your trying to talk to them and they’re using their phone, I think it’s kind of rude. People think it’s acceptable, but it can be kind of annoying.

Definitely throwing cigarette butts on the ground, because, I don’t know why, if you smoke, you should assume other people want your garbage on the ground, and that it’s not littering, because it is. And it’s not biodegradable at all.

lt ignacioWhite lies. Lies where you think you won’t hurt people, or it doesn’t really matter. Somebody that has a habit like that, they build up and all of a sudden the little lies become bigger and bigger and it becomes easier. So, if you just get rid of the lies in the first place you wont have to deal with this huge, big lie in the end.
