Is Etiquette Still Important?
Etiquette. Is it still relevant in today’s world?
Your Two Chums say, “Absolutely. Without a doubt.”
We realize that in some households, there is little time or inclination to teach such things as good table manners, respectful ways of speaking to people, etc. etc. but there is nothing that shows you up more than bad manners and not knowing which fork to use when.
Some people say, “Well, what does it really matter?” We say, “It absolutely DOES”.
If you do not already own one, get yourself a book which you can go to get the right answer on what is expected in today’s world. Now, etiquette of today is nothing like it was when our grandmothers were hosting teas and deciding who should “pour”. What an honor it was to be that person! A good one might be this one by Emily Post, somewhat of an etiquette guru through the ages.
We say learn good manners. You will always feel more comfortable where ever you may find yourself.
