These 25 Oddly Specific Rules Will Make You Think Before You Laugh | “Crying Is Allowed but Please Do So Quietly”
Very few of us like following rules but they are essential for a civilized society. There are some codes of conduct that we have to abide by to maintain civil behavior and ensure harmony. A society's moral compass is defined and maintained by rules, but a few rules are just so random that we cannot make up our minds about whether to follow them, break them or laugh at them. But why were they created in the first place? Public spaces like restaurants, offices and hospitals have rules that make sense like, "Knock on closed doors before entering" as well as uncommon ones that make us scratch our heads like, "Please don't say DAMN when you hear the price." Something bizarre must have happened to give birth to these rules that don't immediately make sense.
An entire subreddit, r/oddlyspecificrules is dedicated to these odd restrictions and, as always, netizens have generously contributed to the thread.
