What Not To Do While Arguing in Public
and her beau Rob Kardashian are the latest victims of ever-present onlookers and nosy Nancy's. Their transgression? They decided to engage in a heated argument in public. That's a huge no-no in the days of old social norms and new camera phones; however, it happens.

The crowd you've created should not know that your sex life is dwindling or you cheated with some random guy while you were on vacay last weekend. Keep all that dirty talk to yourself. Although arguments call for heavy duty ammunition at times, in public, these tidbits are not to be used.
Do not throw a punch or try to slap your partner. It's the highest form of disrespect in this situation. You're mad, your lover is livid, and you throw a punch? That's a recipe for an eruption that's simply not necessary. Not only are you physically abusing some you care about, you're choosing to humiliate that person, and that is inconsiderate and beyond hurtful.
Screaming and Yelling
This is hard one to abide by. Once you're pissed, it often hard to keep your thoughts to a dull roar, but try. You can speak sternly and with authority without going hoarse. And remember, you have an audience. The less they know, the better.
Jim and Jane who just walked by your screaming match do not want to hold court on the ills of your relationship. Okay? And please, do not call your buddies to help you plead your case. Even if those surrounding your ruckus are friends, don't drag them into the mix. Instead, keep it down and give the argument between you and yours.
