Check and see if the guy opens the door for you. Small gesture. Big telling sign.
Open the door for the elderly. Just do it.
Never snap your fingers at the waiter. They are not servants.
Try not to yell at the customer service representative. It is shooting the messenger.
Always tip 18 – 20%- 25% at a nice restaurant. Don’t double the tax. Especially if you had alcohol. (alcohol is not taxed so you will under-tip.)
Don’t talk on your cell phone in line.
Applying lip-gloss in public is ok. But go to the restroom to apply anything else.
Treat everyone with respect, unless they prove that they cannot be respected.
Shake hands when being introduced to someone.
Remember birthdays and anniversaries. Very important.
Don’t walk ahead of your date, ever. If they walk slower, then you walk slower.
Say “please” and “thank you” to the waiter, it goes a long way.
At the grocery store, if you have a lot and the person behind you has very few, let them go ahead of you.
In the ladies room, let the pregnant woman go ahead of you if there is a line.
When you get into an elevator and are standing near the buttons, ask the other patrons what floor they would like to go to and push the button for them.
Silverware – Start from the outside going in.
Try your hardest not to fart in the elevator.
Always end emails, phone conversations, face conversations and instant messages with a proper ending. I.E Thank you, I look forward to hearing from you, love you, have a great day, see ya soon, ttfn, etc. etc.
Accept gifts and compliments with a thank you. Rejecting a gift or a compliment is like rejecting that person who gives it or calling him/her a liar.
