Partying is part of our culture! From Mogodu Mondays to Phuza Thursday, we just love #turningitup. However, here are 10 things we think you should never do at a party.
1. Don’t Drink From A Glass, Unless You See It Being Poured
This is the golden rule for all partygoers. Open your own can, or pour out your own drink, and do not accept opened or poured drinks from anyone else.
2. Don’t Drink Too Much
Don’t be a slaptiger! The last thing you want to do is pass out and forget all about your ama-get-down. You don’t have to be drunk to have a nice time, so be responsible and watch your alcohol intake.
3. Don’t Drink And Drive
Catch a taxi or call a friend, but whatever you do, do not drink and drive. This is to ensure the safety of both you and others.
4. Don’t Dance On The Bar
It doesn’t matter whether you in the mood to pansula or twerk, just don’t do it on the bar.
5. Don’t Set Anything On Fire
“The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire”! We want you to have a good time, but we don’t want you to literally set the roof on fire. Stay away from any flammable objects, and don’t set anything on fire.
6. Don’t Discuss Controversial Issues
It’s a party for goodness sake! Jive the night away and avoid the topics of politics and religion.
7. Don’t Lose Your Friends
It’s always a good idea to rock up to the party with your crew, and make sure that you leave with that same crew. Move together and watch out for one another.
8. Don’t Act Like You Have Never Been Out
We understand the excitement of the build-up to the party of the month, but behave appropriately. Don’t be a Bhari! Be cool! And just enjoy!
9. Don’t Dress Inappropriately
Know when to lace up your All Stars and when to bring out the square toes. If umswenko is the theme, then stick to it.
10. Don’t Get Involved In Any Fights
Whether it’s your best friend or your worst enemy, don’t get involved in fights. It doesn’t matter why; just remember that it could end up ugly. You should also remove any shards of glass laying around, so that there are no potential weapons, ready for the taking.
