Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
But if you keep doing unto others and they never do unto you, then you might just get a little pissed off.
For a while you stop doing unto others. At first, it feels pretty good and you find yourself with a lot of free time. But after a while, it feels weird because you’re a do unto others kind of person.
So you start doing unto others again and all is well until the vicious circle comes around and someone reminds you that not everybody does unto others. Some do unto themselves.
Sounds like a plan.
