10 Times it’s OK to be rude
When the other person was unnecessarily rude to you first.
When someone gets all righteous about your choice of whether to get married, have kids, ride a motorbike, be vegan, pierce your bellybutton, or anything else that’s – must we say it? – your choice.
When the man behind you is so close that you can feel his breath.
When you’ve been waiting long enough for your flatmate to clean the bathroom, do their dishes, put away their laundry or finally tell that couchsurfing friend that they can’t sleep in your lounge forever.
When the cute Adam Driver-ish charmer from the bar turns into a Kylo Ren-ish egomaniac in bed.
When you’re the object of any kind of ism: sexism, racism etc…
When the salesperson informs you that the shop you’re in doesn’t carry sizes larger than a 10.
When you run into the moron who ghosted you or stood you up.
When it’s two hours past Mr Delivery’s 45-minute delivery promise and you are just. So. Very. Hangry!
When going with perfectly straightforward didn’t work the first four times. At that point, they really only have themselves to blame!
