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!!!
