Organizations have written rules and unwritten rules and the latter may be more important than the former. Not knowing the unwritten rules can place us in the position of a person who is entering a pitch-black room with no sense of the room's size and where the furniture is located.
If you think that observation is obvious, quickly cite the unwritten rules of your organization. If you can only think of one, you may be missing a few.
