No.3 If You're Stuck In An Intersection, Back Up

If the light is green but you can't make it all the way through the intersection, you must wait until a space opens up before you go. It is not OK to drive into the intersection, get stuck there as the light turns red and then obstruct the cross traffic for a solid 60 seconds when their light turns green. Even worse is turning to the cross traffic and making helpless gestures as if to say, "But it's not my fault! There's a car in my way! I can't go!"

EDIT: Everyone who thinks I'm talking about going into the intersection and waiting until you can turn left (or turning left when the light turns red), no, that's obviously acceptable.

No.2 Walk On The Sides Of The Sidewalk

Slow walkers might want to avoid staying exactly in the middle of the sidewalk, occupying it completely. Oh, what a beautiful day it would be for me!

No.1 Say Thank You Always - But Especially When Someone Holds Open The Door

Nothing pisses me off more than when someone doesn't simply say "thanks" when I hold the door for them. Is it really that difficult? Do they feel they deserve doors to be held open for them, rather than someone just being kind? I always say "thanks a lot" when someone holds the door for me, regardless of whether I am on the phone or in conversation with whomever I'm with -- cause it takes about half a second to do, and lets them know you appreciate the gesture. Pass it along.

Basically it's just about respecting oneself and each other well.
Nobody likes having own time wasted by others,
the logical consequence is not wasting the time of others either.
Personal Hygiene is at the basis of respecting your own body,
being inconsiderate about it also sends strong negative signals to your sourrounding,
at least outside China.
And I'm not talking about the migrant Worker supplying your food, building your streets and houses,
which naturally leads to considerable dirt and dust, city dwellers should keep that in mind when trying to make themselves feel better by looking down upon them.
But an expensive Rolex bought in HK does NOT excuse and outshine those unwashed white socks, rotten teeth and stuff for someone who only proves mere neglectance with it.
Do you want to constantly be forced to inevitably be exposed to the shouting, yelling, noise from others?
So keep your own volume down as well.
Wouldn't you like to walk on clean sidewalks and streets rather than filthy ones?
keep your litter for yourself and throw it in the containers designated for it, rather than just dumping it behind you as you go, don't spit around, don't defeacate into streets, shopping malls etc., because your own mess is also inconvenient to those around you.

stuff like that, essentially.
Be considerate about your sourrounding and yourself, and the rest pretty much comes from that.
