I decided to submit these rules in my journal since a lot of them apply to me as well. They are all over the internet, so it's not like I am giving away freely something that cannot be found easily, because I wouldn't do it otherwise. =] And besides that, these are even rules of common sense. Gibbs and NCIS have changed my life in a good way and these rules as well. And they can be seen metaphoric as well, which is the best part.
Rule #1: Never let suspects stay together.
Rule #1: Never screw [over] your partner.
Rule #2: Always wear gloves at a crime scene.
Rule #3: Don't believe what you're told. Double check.
Rule #3: Never be unreachable.
Rule #4: The best way to keep a secret? Keep it to yourself. Second best? Tell one other person - if you must. There is no third best.
Rule #7: Always be specific when you lie.
Rule #8: Never take anything for granted.
Rule #9: Never go anywhere without a knife
Rule #12: Never date a co-worker.
Rule #15: Always work as a team.
Rule #18: It's better to seek forgiveness than ask permission.
Rule #22: Never, ever bother Gibbs in interrogation.
Rule #23: Never mess with a Marine's coffee if you want to live.
