    A lot of this depends on the company present. I have friends where none of these things would bother them, but i have other friends I wouldn't dare, say, put my feet on their couch or coffeetable, even some i wouldn't dare wear shoes into their home. I don't find any of these things truly rude under the correct circumstances. I've had friends that came to my house and ate candy bars and tossed the wrapper on the ground, just because my place is a mess, doesn't make it excusable, there's a nice balance somewhere there between bad manners and a good host. Your style of friends also plays a large part though.

    As long as they don't mess with my tanks, they can do whatever the hell they want at my house.
    No matter how much I learn or know I'm still gonna be a NOOB, but that doesn't mean I'm an idiot!

    Rue, I've tried to make this a multiple choice but I'm darned if I can do it!!!

    I think all of the things on the list are rude, but then again I'm old fashioned!

    They're all rude. (Tried to change this so more than one thing could be voted on and I couldn't.)

    My neighbor used to walk in without knocking which drove me nuts and also used to just open my refrigerator.

    As for feet on the couch or table,just make sure your feet are clean!lol

    You cannot make everyone else around you yawn that way!

    Thanks Sharon and Hobbs, for trying to fix the poll...but it's still a good discussion!

    I must be old-fashioned too - because I think all the ones I posted are rude - I don't get too worked up about it (except for the time a 'friend' rearranged my furniture for his comfort...I still get mad about that one).

    My neighbour used to freak if anyone went into her fridge without permission...but until then I hadn't thought about it too much. But I suppose I probably wouldn't just help myself to anyone's fridge or food without express permission either...

    The only thing that really bugs me is when people leave random garbage in my car, like wrappers in the door storage

    I think some of them are obviously no-nos if you are a guest. Others, seem to be the kinda thing that only bothers people if its someone they dont particularly like.

    Of course, depending on how formal the situation, they will vary a lot.

    Im sorry but im not afraid to pick my teeth in public, but i wouldnt in my friends house, or a nice restaurant

    In the same respect I always cover my mouth when I yawn, however I would never say anything to someone for doing it, which would be just as rude if not more so.

    The garbage thing drives me nuts, gotta agree with cocoa I clean up after myself and most of my friends dont lol

    Wow! I am amazingly rude! brrraaaappppp But it's ok. So is everyone I know.

    The only thing on that list that would really bother me is the rearranging of furniture. Then again, we used to do this to each other as a joke. My aunt was always doing it to my grandma's frog figure collection.

    I would have no problem using decorative soap..

    Especially if that was all they had..

    Soap's pretty cheap, last time I checked.. :)

    Yawning is no big deal, as long as your mouth isn't full..

    Feet on the couch.. I dunno.. On the coffee table, for sure (though my wife cringes when I do this)..

    The rest are all rude, rude, rude..
