Ah, ok, I'm always glad to at least find a way to agree to disagree.
"Usually" is a relative term, but sometimes, I truly don't understand the reason for a rule. Often, I think people don't ever question rules or question authority at all. Adult swim, no-scuba goggles at the pool, no bare feet at xyz place... whatever. None of this is life-or-death, but it's still meaningful to me.
In those cases, we DO ASK why the rule is the rule. Sometimes, it makes sense and we say "oh wow, never thought of that." Other times, the staff person can't really give me an answer, or they say "it's always been that way" or they give an answer that doesn't make sense to us. In those cases, we might not go back, we might ask for a rule change, and failing those things, we might break the rule, understanding the possible consequences.
We'd never question the rules of a person's personal living space - I'm talking PUBLIC places here.
I hope this explains it better.
