Top-10 list Muslims good at in Ramadan

Assalam alaikum,

This is a time sensitive project, we need to finalize this top-10 list before Ramadan.

I'd like every one's inputs, so we can share the rewards.

We want to come up with the top 10 common mistakes in Ramadan that we should fix.

I have so far six listed, please add, remove, reorder or comment.

10 things Muslims are good at in Ramadan... but in-sha-Allah, not this year.

1- stack up food and spend all day cooking and all nights eating
2- making a mess in the masjids at iftar time
3- fighting for our egos for when should Ramadan start or end
4- fasting but not praying
5- take a vacation from masjid except for the 27th night
6- refraining from halal and beneficial food but indulging in haram or harmful stuff (gazing or smoking)

Okay... let's start.

May Allah reward us all.

Finalized Version

#3 makes no sense. Rephrase or something.

7. Not waking up for sahri and/or not breaking fast on time because real life gets in the way.
8. Using profanity or committing unecessary sins while fasting.
9. Eating too quickly after fast is broken and eating very unhealthy food.
10. Forgetting that Ramadan is more than just a month of fasting and not taking advantage of all the benefits.

#3 I'm trying to point to all the baseless or egotistic arguments about when is Ramadan or Eid. A dialogue is fine, but in an Islamic way.

and Allah knows best

Parking ... I don't know how to phrase this but people block passways and other parked vehicles when they are in a rush to catch Tarawih.

Also, over-speeding while driving to the masjid.

Link both back to the rule of not running to the masjid to catch prayer.
