Since common sense is by nature not so common, I suppose something like this thread wouldn't be entirely obsolete.
Despite the Funhousesque theme, I'm having some serious purposes for it, considering how I
a. never go out to learn this stuff the normal way
b. do not know anyone aside from you guys
I figure I could ask Southperry for heads-ups.
1/ Is it the norm to pay for a doctor appointment (or any such professional appointments) priorly and not receive a satisfying result later? E.g: Inconclusive/inaccurate diagnoses.
Back in my 3rd world country, we pay for what we get, not what we don't. Can't fix my motorbike? Too bad, but hey, thanks for trying anyway.
2/ Is it bad practice to show up regularly at a place with repeated clothing options? Say I have enough outdoor shirts to alternate for each day of the week, but every week is going to be the damned same.
3/ At the door, does the person inside get out first? Or whoever standing on the side that the door opens to will hold the door? (I believe most public places have doors open out)
4/ How to properly wave at someone to signal them to come to you/go ahead and do whatever they were going to do?
5/ When crossing in front of seated people (between rows of seats in cinema, for example), is it more polite to face them or face away?
