10 Things a Lady Should Never Do in Public

10 Things a Lady Should Never Do in Public

The Frisky | DivineCaroline

March 19, 2009

by Wendy Atterberry of TheFrisky

Recently, the good people at AskMen.com revealed their list of the ìTop Ten Things Men Shouldnít Do In Public,î which included definite no-noís like picking their noses and peeing conspicuously, and debatable no-noís like crying (Come on, what if his dog just died? What if he just watched The Notebook for the first time?). Interestingly, they said proposing to your girlfriend on a subway was a ìboldî public moveósomething that really ought to top the list of forbidden public acts, if you ask me (I mean seriously, a subway? Is there a danker, drearier place on Earth to ask a woman to spend the rest of your life with you?).

Anyway, thereís no reason men should have all the fun, so in the interest of equality weíve got a list of our own. After the jump, the ìTop Ten Things Women Shouldnít Do In Public.î

1. Apply Full Make-Up

Okay, look. Refreshing your lip gloss after a meal is one thing, but putting your whole face on while riding the bus or subway (where no one should do any proposing!) is so not cool. Set your alarm ten minutes earlier, and do your makeup before you leave your apartment. A woman has to retain a little mystique, you know.

2. Adjust Your Skimpy Underwear

If itís so uncomfortable in the first place that you have to go digging in places you really shouldnít, maybe itís time to switch to underwear with a little more coverage, hmm?

3. Sit Cross-Legged While Wearing a Skirt

Just donít.

4. Show Off Your Midriff

I donít care if youíve got washboard abs, if you could bounce a quarter of your belly, or if youíre only sixteen. Unless youíre on the beach, at the pool, or working for tips, no one, I mean no one, should be running around with an exposed midriff. Itís just not classy.

    Ladies should have more respect for themselves and this should just be second nature to them.

    I disagree with #1. I love to watch women apply make-up. It's a fetish of mine. So, as long as she isn't driving while doing it, great. Then again, I agree with #1 'cuz women prolly don't want pervs with strange fetishes gawking at them. :p

    There is a time number six should be followed and there is a time who cares!
    When you are iat an event with long lines waiting for restroom you should not need to make an phone call then. But at an average restroom with waiting it probably is fine to make an call if needed! As long as your not doing like camera stuff with phone.

    I don't know about number 5 and 6. I guess it depends on how loud you speak or how loud you ask.

    I disagree with the "ask your spouse if they love you" part. If your husband truly loves you, it won't matter where you ask him, he'll be glad to tell you at any time and at any place...unless you have an incredibly selfish husband who chooses to use you as a trophy wife and gets embarrassed at simple questions like "do you love me?" How superficial...

    I don't get the not crossing legs. I don't see anything wrong with the way the lady in the picture of this article is sitting. I always thought that was a way for a proper lady to sit. Obviously crossing your legs like Sharron Stone did in Basic Instinct or crossing like a yogi is what not to do in a skirt.

    Well, I hope nobody does number 10 "in public" !

    Good article, and I guess some people still have to learn how behaving in public places like restaurants ....
