 Bud’s Rules: By Saad Shah Although Bud has many rules that save him from many things, I think he uses his rules to survive. He used it to save him from being homeless, sad, and more. It was also during the Great Depression so life was harder. Bud uses his rules to help him survive. In chapter 3 of the novel, “Bud, not Buddy.” We are introduced to rule 328 as Bud is trying to muster the courage to hit a “vampire.” Bud recalls rule 328 that you need to do something quick or you might not do it.
