19. Don’t be all pretentious about the way you travel. You’re not that special, bro.
This rule came about as I was gchatting with a friend about how great I am at having awesome trips, and he was all, “I’m pretty great at travelling, too.” One of us might have even said “I’m not a tourist. I’m a traveller.” Ugh, I know. So this rule is mostly a reminder to myself to not brag about my own particular way of travelling, because, come on, that’s terrible.

but not wearing one makes you look like an asshole.
Especially to the paramedics.

The New Rules of Adulthood #6. If you really like a band, whose music you listen to for free, buy their album. If no one does, they’ll go away.

#2. If you’re at an upscale mixology bar, don’t order a drink in a martini glass when you don’t have a spot at the bar.
There’s nothing cool about spilling an $11 cocktail all over yourself.
