First, we're told never to respond when called at night. Next, we're instructed to never crash a house party. After that, we're told to take the long way and never take the shortcut. And finally, we're begged to never respond to the voices that whisper to us. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
