CONGRATS TO MY GIVEAWAY WINNER!

Thank you to all the people who entered my giveaway this week to celebrate National Etiquette Week! I asked y'all to tell me what etiquette faux pas others commit that drive you crazy. Here's some of the tacky things people do everyday:

~This whole cell phone thing is out of control, Period

~Failure to R.s.v.p.--I just don't understand why people don't respond to an invitation. It's soooo easy to do!

~Not sending a thank-you note. Totally tacky. Just tacky.

~Bad table manners. I've said it before and I'll keep saying it...nothing says more about you than your table manners!

~A lot of you are not happy with the way gentlemen treat ladies and elderly people; i.e., not giving up a seat on the subway, opening doors, et cetera.

~The ladies are not comfortable with people asking personal questions about their 'biological clock.' Also, it's not acceptable to touch an expectant mother's tummy! Good Lord!

~Several readers don't like it when men wear caps/hats indoors...not proper, no ma'am!

~Applying makeup in public, not using kind words, wearing white shoes before Easter (don't get me started on this one), and not addressing people properly (yes ma'am/no sir) also made y'all's list.

This is what National Etiquette Week is all about--making people aware of the rules of civility. I believe that all y'all practice proper etiquette and know you are setting the right example to your family, friends, and co-workers.

Now y'all be ever-so gracious and join me in congratulating the winner of my giveaway ...Jo at BeesAndFleurDeLis. Jo lives waaaaaay up north in Connecticut and has a darling blog. Y'all stop in to visit with her soon.

No worries though...I'll be hosting another giveaway in June!!!

congrats to the winner! I forgot about caps indoors.... my father has a fit when his students do that, and asks them to leave his class or take it off!

Congrats to your winner! My Grandma always made the guys in the family remove their caps. And, out of respect for her- they did.
Hugs,

Can't stand it when people apply makeup in public! A little lip stick or gloss is okay, but when you start getting out the face makeup or eyeliner you've just gone too far!

Congratulations to the winner. Oh yes the cell phone thing is so crazy. We were sitting outside at a restaurant last weekend when a man at the next table (who was alone) started talking on his cell phone so LOUD. He was totally oblivous to the rest of us. He just ate and talked on his cell phone. Everybody was looking at him! Didn't seem to bother him at all.
