I will try my best to live by these rules. I hope I can expect it out of my friends too. Edit: I'm not trying to be on a high horse here. I have definitely broken these rules before.

  1. If a friend who has good tastes asks you to go see a show, don't be wishy washy and say you need to learn more about it. The point is hanging out with the friend. Valid reasons include money and scheduling conflict.
  2. Let your friend know your plan right away so they don't waste time waiting around (i.e say yes or no, no maybes)
  3. When you crash at someone's place keep your shit together and neat.
  4. Don't break plans with someone because you are tired. Being tired is not a legitimate reason. It's like saying, yeah I'm too lazy to be your friend. They probably shuffled shit around or are excited to hang out. Now their shit is fucked.
  5. Plan stuff to do too. Don't be a leach and just ride on your friends being proactive.
