1.     Ethnic culture

I am a “Southerner” from deep South Mississippi. An unspoken rule of Southerners is you never meet a stranger.  Most everyone in the south is friendly and greets everyone with a  “hey”. 

2.     Social group

I am a member of Coaltown Baptist Church.  An unspoken rule is that when ever you have a baby, get sick, get married, have a death in the family, we all cook for you.  Meal after meal will arrive to help you out.  

3.     Recreational group

I am a member of Empower Fitness.  We have an unwritten rule that you always encourage your team and never give up. 

4.     (Optional—other group).

I am a member of the Forrest General Hospital “7T Crew” as we call ourselves.  We are a FAMILY of nurses, techs, secretaries etc.  Our unwritten rule is you never leave another behind.  We ALWAYS walk out together after a long hard day or and easy day.
