Proper etiquette and mannerism is important regardless of where you are.  Whether your mother has just spoiled you at Christmas time or you are being served by a waitress who just got dumped by her boyfriend of 5 years, saying things like, “Please” and “Thank you” are simple gestures that go a long way.curtsy_custom-5551da9c9792b78a067b7b51419233578d4b08e1-s6-c10

Today’s Tip of the Day: Do not forget your mannerism wherever you are:

  1. Say “Please” and “Thank you” often
  2. Accept a compliment graciously, not cockily
  3. Greet people often and with a smile
  4. Say “Excuse me” when needing people to move or when budding into a conversation
  5. Apologize when necessary.  Don’t force people to make you say sorry
  6. Pay compliments to people- Don’t kiss ass too much, but let people know when they look good or have gotten the job done well

  1. fyi:
    mannerism: exaggerated or affected adherence to a particular style,a characteristic and often unconscious mode or peculiarity of action, bearing, or treatment

    manners:: social conduct or rules of conduct as shown in the prevalent customs

    also people don’t “bud” into conversations, they butt in.
