12) Various condiments that "should always be on the table" when eating

I don't remember this one at all. I can't even imagine how this would be an etiquette issue.

It's a current one!  Look in the Life section.

It being rude to touch a pregnant belly without asking.

Having never been pregnant and never having felt the urge to do such a thing, I didnt realize until this forum it was such a problem.

You're going to think me strange, but bear with me.

I need another one to add in addition to the one above.  If I just add this one, it'll be 13 issues.  I'm not superstitious (well, maybe a little), but I just can't add a 13th without a 14th! :D

OK. I think that's #13.
I'll add a possible 14

By the way, when my lunch gets stolen at work I do not do anything dangerous or illegal.

I just have my son-in-law make me his 8 alarm curry dish.  He likes it hot, very very hot and the mild version is very tasty also so I eat the mild and leave the hot and the red face, sweating and all the water drinking identify the thief. 

I think the contentious threads teach us that there are all kind of different ways to look at the world.

My first shopping cart thread about 3 years ago was a revalation.  (never again I swear)

I have another:

Relatives should they or should they not be in the birthing room.

Shopping cart thread? I can't imagine why this would be an etiquette issue (although I'm sure it is- if shoes in the house are, then anything's possible  ;D ).

Don't ask.  Trust me! :D

Hey, y'all - just a reminder...this thread is for seriously overdone and/or "we know they're contentious" topics.  It looks like we're starting to get some suggestions for additions for things that may or may not need to be put on the list.  This is just a "heads up" for our newbies as to the topics that they'd be better off doing a search for before starting a new thread on - not every possible topic that could be discussed here (we'd run out of things to talk about if we put everything on this list!)
