Remember when you were a kid and you’re mum took you to the shops and told you to behave yourself – by that we mean no tantrums! In life we know sometimes you just want to act like a three-year old who didn’t get that toy they wanted, or just behave appallingly in general – but there are ways to make acting like a normal human being possible and in turn not piss anyone off.
We know how difficult it is to stay sensible, polite and morally-correct when out clubbing (this can possibly largely attributed to the large amounts of alcohol consumed!), but just as in the shops, the gym or at work, when you’re out clubbing, there is a certain etiquette which should be followed. Here are a few tips on how to act and how not to act at clubs:
1. Wait your turn. This relates to a situation where you have to wait for anything…this can include NOT letting five of your friends in front of you in the line for the bathroom (this relates mostly to ladies), NOT sneakily jumping the cue when other people have been waiting ages to get in, or NOT pushing your way to the front of the bar when it’s obvious there were other people who had been waiting longer to order drinks.
2. Try not to step on too many feet. If the venue is crowded, you will more than likely at some point end up trotting on some poor innocent souls tootsies, but try to make an effort to avoid this as much as possible – especially if you’re in heels. There is nothing worse than having some girl in six-inch stilettos stamping on your feet, then walking off without even so much as an apology!
3. Don’t get drunk and pick fights. This may seem an obvious one but yet we still have all been guilty of this at some stage (and no, this isn’t aimed mainly at men – women are just as notorious for doing this!). For some reason when alcohol hits our bloodstream we get very happy, but can also get very offensive, cocky, territorial and oversensitive for no reason; this can lead to fights, and it’s just not worth it.
4. Follow dance floor etiquette. This is a whole subject in itself! But to summarise:
