Etiquette Tip of the Month

Young ladies, this is for you…

My mom always used to say that a real lady never calls a boy. That a true lady never chases a boy but lets the boy chase her.

Young ladies I want to challenge you, don’t call the boy you like, let him call you. If you do this, the ball will always be in your court.

Your mood should never influence your manners!

Even if you’re having the worst day ever, you should never take it out on those you interact with. Put a smile on your face and try to conduct the rest of your day with positivity, so the negative event that may have occurred doesn’t reflect on the rest of your day.

Be a Helper

You don’t have to be a Boy Scout to help out your fellow citizen. If you see someone whose arms are overloaded with packages, open the door.

Also, if you have just entered a building and someone is right behind you, hold the door to keep it from slamming in his or her face.

Etiquette Tip of the Week: Eating

Eating with your mouth closed is very important, especially when you are around others. Nobody wants to be around somebody who chews loudly with his or her mouths open.

A way to prevent chewing loudly is to take on smaller portions of food, that way it is easier to chew.

Cell Phone Etiquette

Sooner or later we will have to make a phone call. Here are some simple tips to consider the next time you make a phone call.

1. Lower your voice when you are taking calls in public, nobody should be able to hear the extent of your conversation.

2. Avoid having personal conversation when others are around.
3. Stay away from having phone conversations when you are already engaged in a face-to-face conversation. It is rude to both the person you are having a face-to-face conversation with, and to the person you are on the phone with.
4. Whenever you go out to dinner or a restaurant put your phone on silent mode so that others around you do not get distracted.
5. Most importantly, keep your eyes on the […]

Table Manners

By: Callista Gould

Make good use of your napkin.

Wipe your fingers as necessary.
Use a small area of the napkin to blot your lips fairly often, so you don’t leave left over food on your mouth.

Posture

Sit up straight. This shows you are alert and attentive.
Lean forward slightly in your chair to show you are listening especially in interviews.

Utensil Etiquette

Use the “outside-in” rule. Use utensils on the outside first and work your way in with each new course you are given.

Meeting New People

When you are introduced to someone new, don’t forget to stand up and introduce yourself.

Etiquette

1. Follow Through – Nobody likes a flaky person. Regardless of how busy your life has become with commitments toyour family and Friends, you should never agree to take on more than you can handle i.e.… rsvp-ing to events, lunches with friends or other engagements.

If a cancellation is necessary, be sincere in your apology and reschedule as soon as possible.

Whether it is to a wedding, a dinner party, shower or gala event, an invitation comes with some important obligations. Here’s a quick guide to keep you on the guest list.

1. RSVP

From the French, it means “Répondez, s’il vous plaît,” or, “Please reply.” This little code has been around for a long time and it’s definitely telling you that your hosts want to know if you are attending. Reply promptly, within a day or two of receiving an invitation.

How To Be A Good Friend

Be real. Connect with people whose friendship you value and see as sustainable long-term.

Be honest. A dishonest person has no chance of having true friends because it’s hard to rely or trust a person who doesn’t behave in a supportive, consistent or trustworthy way.

Be loyal. If your friend tells you something in confidence, keep that confidence and don’t talk about it to anyone else. Don’t let others say bad things about your friend. Until you’ve had a chance to hear your friend’s side of the story, treat comments that are not supportive as hearsay and rumors.

Be respectful. Good friends respect one another and show this by being openly and mutually supportive.

Share. Being selfless is an important part of being a good friend. Accommodate your friend’s […]
