The Golden Rules
THE GOLDEN RULES
I. If you open it, close it.
II. If you turn it on, turn it off.
III. If you unlock it, lock it.
IV. If you break it, repair it.
V. If you can't fix it, call someone who can.
VI. If you borrow it, return it.
VII. If you use it, take care of it.
VIII. If you make a mess, clean it up.
IX. If you move it, put it back.
X. If it belongs to somebody else and you want to use it, get permission.
XI. If you don't know how to operate it, leave it alone.
XII. If it doesn't concern you, mind your own business.
Now, to some perhaps these rules seem harsh, but in these days of blurred boundaries, it's a refreshing thing to have expectations and ground rules laid out in a plain, self-explanatory way.
