Thursday's Question

If you know me then you know I like to ask questions. That is how I get to know you. And believe me I want to get to know you. And you! And you! So, every week, on Thursday I like to ask a question. And you, my friend, get to give me the answers!! Okay!




Are You a Rule-Follower?
Or do you like to bend them?
Or break them?

  1. You and your questions, Paula!! I feel I have to do quite a lot of soul searching when I come to answer them :) My initial reaction was I'm well behaved I don't break the law but I know that I'm also a bit of a risk taker so I have to "bend" rules sometimes too! I'd never do anything I'd consider wrong but I don't hold much truck with silly rules and regulations either. I do feel I have a good moral compass so that steers my decisions on certain matters - rule abiding or not :) So does that answer your question or leave you more confused than before???

    1. I love to ask questions!! I am not a risk taker at all so I guess you can say I am a rule-follower! Especially when those rules are laws!

  2. I love questions like this and you are right, it is a good way to get to know someone better.

    I am usually (95.9%) a rule follower. The ones I bend are the ones typically I make (like won't lend son anymore money, LOL, and then he calls asking......). I don't intentionally speed but I have been known to go faster than the speed limit. My brother was a rule bender and got into a lot of trouble. I adopted being good years ago so that my mom wouldn't have to stress out too much :)

  3. Hi Paula - I'll follow the rules if I have to ... but if I think something's ridiculous then I'll wander my way round, or take a different route ...

    I conform if I have to ... but prefer the independent path .. cheers Hilary

  4. I try to follow the rules, especially those that keep us safe. They were made for a reason.

    1. Yes, important to follow rules that keep us safe! Even if we don't like them. Like wearing a seatbelt!!

  5. Hi Paula. I like to follow the rules but sometimes I tend to bend them or take a short cut if I can. Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week. :) Great question.

  6. I pretty much am a rule follower but it depends on who is making the rules! I am a law abiding citizen but here at work I tend to balk against the ridiculous rules people seem to invent! Especially when the rules involve work that they know nothing about! Such is life in the corporate world!

    1. I would imagine life in the corporate rule can get tedious! A hospital is much the same!!

  7. I'm a rule bender, depending on the rule. Now laws I abide.

  8. I would have to say I'm a rule follower, especially when playing games. Cheaters make me angry! ;)
    Thanks for visiting my blog. Following you on Bloglovin :)

    1. LOL! Yes, cheaters can be a challenge. I have been known to cheat a time or two in games, however!

  9. So boring ... but ya, I'm a rule-follower. You should hear me when motorists blithely disregard those stop signs in grocery/shopping center parking lots. (Well, maybe you shouldn't!)

  10. Oh I usually bend the rules in my favor.:)

  11. I am a rule follower. Even when I try not to be.....I still am.

  12. Depends on who made the rules and if the rule-maker has a definitive impact on my life and/or paycheck. Know what I mean? ;-) And then sometimes one has to break 'em on the spur of the moment and say sorry later.

    1. Hahaha! I like your answer. You are a feisty Gram! I have to say I am a rule-follower. Not very adventurous here!!

I love to hear what you might think. Leave me a comment. I guarantee though that I will delete your comment if you are just here to cause trouble. So tread lightly!
