Don’t forget about etiquette rules when at home. For instance, it’s very rude to shout from another room. Besides, you might get used to such behavior, and it will make a bad impression on other people.
It’s rude to refill only your glass. First, ask if the person sitting next to you would like a refill.
Don’t take a long time to choose the best piece of food on a plate. Take the nearest piece.
Don’t put a soup spoon on the table during dinner or after it. Leave the spoon in the bowl so as not to make the tablecloth dirty.
When holding a teacup, place your fingers to the front and the back of the handle. However, you can loop your fingers around the handle when drinking coffee.
Remember: when at work, it’s not ok to lay out your makeup or put your purse or hat on your desk. Find a different place for that.
If you are sitting on a low chair, don’t cross your legs. Hold your knees together, and lean them to the side. You can cross your legs only if you put one foot right behind the other.
If the place you are visiting doesn’t have a cloakroom, put your clothes on special hangers inside.
It’s ok to fix your hair in the cloakroom, but you shouldn’t do your makeup, brush your hair, or tie your tie. Go to the bathroom if you need to do something like that.
Sometimes it’s ok for women (but not for men) to wear a coat inside.
All large items should be left in a cloakroom: umbrellas, huge bags, briefcases (if there is nothing valuable inside). The only exception is a lady’s purse.
When a lady gets into a car, she shouldn’t “step“ into it. She should sit on the edge of the seat and ”pull" her legs into the car. When getting out of the car, she should put her feet on the road and then stand up.
