Dear Boardie, why are you so strict in enforcing every rule - even the most trivial?
A. Whatever rule you’re breaking, ask yourself, what if everybody did it?
Say A hangs their wet, sandy beach towel over their balcony railing.
B sees it, assumes it’s an okay thing to do and drapes his wet suit over his balcony. C sees the towel and wet suit and strings up a laundry line with baby diapers. D decides to air-dry sheets she’s tie-dying for her Etsy shop. E hangs out a duck he’s drying for Chinese cooking class etc. etc. Well, you get the idea.
