Money for an emergency
It’s a great idea to hide some money inside your phone case. There’s always a chance that you’ll urgently need some cash (for example, to pay a taxi driver). Having some emergency money might just save you if your wallet/purse or bag gets stolen or lost.
The crowd effect
If you or someone you’re with suddenly feels unwell in a public place, don’t ask everyone around you for help all at once. Instead find the nearest individual, and ask them specifically. Otherwise, responsibility simply “dissipates”: people will think that someone else has already taken on responsibility for the emergency situation, and they’ll just walk on by.
What to do if you can’t open the window of a sinking car
If you’re in a car that’s sinking underwater, you must immediately open the window and climb out through it without delay. But what should you do if the window won’t open? This can happen in those cases when the body of the car has been damaged as a result of a collision. For this reason, you should always have something heavy inside the car that can be used to break the window if necessary. A steering wheel lock, fire extinguisher, or any other heavy object would be suitable for this.

A simple safety rule for staircases that many people forget
Never put your hands in your pockets when climbing or descending a staircase so that you can easily catch the handrail if you slip. But if you do fall, your arms can play a vital role in preventing serious injury to your head.
If something seems wrong, don’t be afraid to be rude
You should always be bold enough to refuse spending time with people who seem strange. If you’re afraid to be alone in the elevator with your neighbor and feel that something’s not right, don’t ignore your instincts just to avoid offending someone.
