Some Unwritten Rules About Living in Chicago

1. Unless it is a Cross-town classic match between the White Sox and the Cubs,

a) Don't wear White Sox hats, shirts, etc. to Cubs games at Wrigley Field and
b) Don't wear Cubs hats, shirts, etc. to White Sox games at U.S. Cellular Field.

2. If you buy a new shiny, expensive car and don't have a garage, so you park it outside, within 36 to 48 months, it will turn into a "beater."

3. Pay your tickets so your car doesn't get booted.

4. Respect the Police and the Mayor.

5. Don't open a map on the L-Train

6. Don't use your Smart Phone on the L-Train

7. Stay off Lake Shore Dr. during snow storms

8. Don't get drunk and swim in Lake Michigan

9. Don't get drunk and drive the wrong way on the expressways or Lake Shore Dr.

10. Probably best to be off the streets and inside between 12:00 midnight and 5:00 AM because that's when most of the crime happens

11. Be very careful about going down on the South Side and/or on the West Side, because that's where most of the crime happens

12. Watch that you don't wear the wrong colors or throw down a gang sign to a rival gang member: It could be a life-ending mistake.

13. Don't get caught up in Heroin or people that do or sell Heroin (Chicago is the Heroin Capital of the U.S.)

14. Don't upset your Alderman or the people in your Alderman's office.

15. Don't ask about the Unwritten Rules.
