Rules for Life - Tell Us Yours!


There’s a bit of a problem with Kitty Flanagan’s hilarious bestseller “488 Rules for Life”! There are actually only 447 rules!! So we’ve taken it upon ourselves to come up with the rest of the rules. Please help. If you have a quirky rule of your own, submit it to us and go in the draw to win your very own copy of her book.

Here’s a little background about Kitty’s book from her publisher:488 Rules for Life is not a self-help book, because it’s not you who needs help, it’s other people. Whether they’re walking and texting, asphyxiating you on public transport with their noxious perfume cloud, or leaving one useless square of toilet paper on the roll, a lot of people just don’t know the rules.

But thanks to Kitty Flanagan’s comprehensive guide to modern behaviour, our world will soon be a much better place. A place where people don’t ruin the fruit salad by putting banana in it … where your co-workers respect your olfactory system and don’t reheat their fish curry in the office microwave … where middle aged men don’t have ponytails …

What started as a joke on Kitty Flanagan’s popular segment on ABC TV’s The Weekly, is now a quintessential reference book with the power to change society. (Or, at least, make it a bit less irritating.)

So let us know what your “Rule for Life” is and you could win your very own copy of Kitty’s masterpiece.
