Accurate?

I actually thought this was gonna be filled with "actual" rules about random things presented in a humorous way. Well it is funny, but I'm not sure how much of it is accurate. While a lot of it is common sense, I wonder about the toilet paper rule...I swear there's a lo...
I actually thought this was gonna be filled with "actual" rules about random things presented in a humorous way. Well it is funny, but I'm not sure how much of it is accurate. While a lot of it is common sense, I wonder about the toilet paper rule...I swear there's a lot of documentation that says it goes the other way. Other than that it's an entertaining book, just might not want to take it seriously.

    Quirky and Enteraining

    There is definitely a large amount of this which is very much common sense. That being said...this should be required reading to enter into adulthood. From things such as:
    - walking in a store
    - shopping and parking etiqutette
    - meal sharing
    - public restroom guidelines
    - driver / pedistrian courtesy....

    All presented in a humourous manner

    Got some snickers, but didn't finish

    I can see if I was in the right mood for it this could be really funny, but I didn't really get into this book. YMMV, check out a sample if it's offered, you might really enjoy it.

    Interesting

    Not really the sort of book compatible with e-readers. A paper copy would be more suitable.
