Etiquette for Every Day
When we are in unfamiliar situations, it is common for us to seek out advice on how to behave properly. That is probably how you found this site. Maybe you are going on a cruise and needed to know what will be expected of you; maybe you are attending a wedding conducted in a religion you are not familiar with and you wanted to see how the evening would progress; or maybe you are having a second baby shower and were unsure of the rules of etiquette regarding that.
Regardless of your special reason for searching out specific etiquette information, we are glad you found this section. While it is easy to employ good manners in foreign conditions, we often toss our manners aside in the company of family and friends in everyday situations. This is where our real efforts need to reside: in the day to day interactions that people form life long opinions of us from.
In this category, you will find helpful etiquette tips on: attending an open house; using a hot tub; visiting the dentist; waiting in line; driving (I wish more people would read this one); sneezing; using the escalator; and many other daily activities that we all participate in. There are hundreds of possible interactions a day, so this section is constantly growing. Please let us know an everyday occurrence where you might appreciate a little guidance and we will add that article to our library!
So, kudos for you for researching how to behave your best for your upcoming special event, but, do not let your etiquette training end there! Try to incorporate our tips into everyday living and your friends will be commenting you on your impeccable manners in no time!
