House Rules

We picked up a framed list of house rules at a craft show a few years back. I can’t attribute this to a specific person but I want to thank that person for providing concise clarity on how we should run our lives.

  1. If you open it, close it.
  2. If you turn it on, turn it off.
  3. If you unlock it, lock it.
  4. If you break it, repair it.
  5. If you can’t repair it, call in someone who can.
  6. If you borrow it, return it.
  7. If you use it, take care of it.
  8. If you make a mess, clean it up.
  9. If you move it, put it back.
  10. If it belongs to someone else and you want to use it, get permission.
  11. If you don’t know how to operate it, leave it alone.
  12. If it doesn’t concern you, don’t mess with it.

I intend to provide a few more rules in a following post that continues the focus on responsible behavior made clear by these simple rules.
