Behave Yourself

23rd April 2009

I find it fascinating that some prison etiquette is just a hyper amplification of the same respect issues we face in outside life:

“5. Do not talk about people unless they are present. Do not whine or complain – especially around lifers – or you may get smashed. Don’t lie, and always keep any promises you make. If you’re a short-timer don’t talk about it. Don’t ask people how much time they are serving, or for why.”
