In this text, I violate three norms in an attempt to highlight the power of a situation as well as the experiences of those who happen to be unlike us in some way.
Discussion Norms according to Hechter (2005) are the "rules, about which there is at least some degree of consensus, that are enforced through social sanctions." The behaviors I chose in this case had to do with speaking to family members in a louder that usual volume and occupation of a position usually reserved for my younger brother at the dining table.
