A Person May Not Walk Around On Sundays With An Ice Cream Cone In His/Her Pocket.



Does this include frozen yogurt? What harm can come to us walking around with an ice cream come in our pocket? Yes, it’s messy to clean up but really? On the other hand, who the heck puts an ice cream cone in their pocket.

Riding in an elevator with strangers can be scary, awkward and uncomfortable. Now It doesn’t have to be if you follow this law. Put the blinders on.



Slippers Are Not To Be Worn After 10:00 PM
