h, human behavior, it certainly is a spectrum. Some things are socially acceptable, some are not, and then there are the grey areas – the things that are socially acceptable, but are really not cool when you think about it.
Here are 10 of the worst offenders.
1. Rubbing pregnant women’s bellies
What is it about pregnant women that seems to make people go crazy? It’s like the minute anyone spots a woman with a baby bump, all common sense goes by the wayside.
This is particularly alarming when it comes to the phenomenon of rubbing pregnant women’s bellies. Here’s a little tip, if you don’t know her, don’t ask to rub her belly. She’s not a Buddha statue, okay?
2. Touching kid’s hair
Kids are cute – we get it. They’re particularly adorable when they have long hair, and many people just love running their hands through it.
Here’s the thing – you wouldn’t go up to a strange woman and start touching her hair. Ditto goes for children.
When in doubt – keep your hands to yourself.
3. People asking kids who play together if they’re getting married
You’ve probably witnessed this a thousand times. Two kids – usually of different sexes – are playing, and along come all the adults asking them if they’re boyfriend and girlfriend, or if they’re getting married.
