#2 A rule I broke.
This has my name written all over it.
I break rules all the time.
I walk on the grass, feed the animals and wear white after Labor Day.
But what came to mind was when I worked at a medical center. This medical center has an ER, a trauma center and every kind of doctor. (It's pretty well known and I'll give you a hint "I'll have a ham and swiss on a roll, please." fill in the blank) So it's pretty big with long hallways, lots of stairs and a tv in every waiting room.
I worked over at the 9-5 office area and after 7 pm that place was deserted save for the cleaning crew. I worked mainly days but sometimes because of family obligations I would work nights. They were flexible with my schedule as long as I got my work done. My lovely little cubicle was in an area behind a locking door that held about 12 other cubes with a break room and two restrooms. One could conceivably step into the office and never see the light of day till closing time.
I tell you this so that you know how lonely it was at night.
One night at about 8:45, caught up on work and feeling bored an idea came to me. I got up and quietly closed the office door behind me. I looked both ways. No one in sight. I dashed to the nearest stairwell and calmed my breathing and tried to walk nonchalantly up the stairs. I turned left at the top. Still no one.
Stepping with the outside of the foot then rolling to the pad, I quickly but quietly made my way down the dimly lit hallway. Holding my breath as each waiting room came near just knowing that I would run into some of the cleaning crew. Still no one.
I reached my destination with no incident.
The lights were on low. The couch cushions freshly fluffed. I creeped in and took one last look behind my shoulder. I tiptoed closer and closer till I could just reach up and touch it. Taking a deep breath to try and quiet the butterflies, my pointer finger reached up...and up...then...click.
The screen flickered to life and a little box told me it was on channel 31. (Really?! This was meant to be!) I turned the volume down and stepped back till I hit the couch with my calves. I plopped down on the soft cushions and...lost myself for an hour in the world of Supernatural.*

* If no one actually says not to do it, is it really a rule?
