TIMESTAMPS
Never visit without calling first 0:22
Never leave an umbrella open to dry 1:19
Never put a handbag on your lap or your chair 1:55
Wear pants and a sweater at home 2:24
If a child lives in their own room, knock before entering 2:50
Ladies can wear their hat and gloves indoors 3:13
Don’t wear more than 13 accessories 3:52
Inviting someone to a restaurant means you pay 4:33
Don’t inconvenience people on an elevator 5:04
The most prestigious seat in a car is behind the driver 5:49
Face the people already sitting while going to your seat 6:25
Taboos for small talk: politics, religion, health, and money 7:19
Informality between strangers is forbidden 7:53
Discussing those who are absent is unacceptable 8:29
It's better to keep nine things secret 8:50

SUMMARY
- Don't ask for the Wi-Fi password.
- Take off your shoes before stepping on the hosts' lovely carpet.
- Don't explore bedrooms without permission.
- Don't raid the host’s fridge or help yourself to food without being offered.
- Don't bring your pet without asking first. I’m sure your chihuahua is the cutest thing ever, but somebody in the house may have a pet allergy.
- It's considered good manners to bring a gift if you’re invited to a party.
- Your open umbrella takes up a lot of space and could inconvenience other people. You should just close it and put it on an umbrella stand or a hook.
- A handbag or purse should be hung on the back of a chair or put on the floor if there isn't one.
- A robe and sleepwear are meant only for going to the bathroom in the morning and from the bathroom to the bedroom in the evening.
- As soon as your kids are in elementary school, ask permission before entering their room. This way, your children will do the same when coming into your bedroom.
- Women may leave their fashion hats on at weddings, lunches, or garden parties. They don't have to take their decorative hat off at religious services or at the movies either.
- If a woman invites a business partner to a restaurant, she pays. If someone says, "Let's go out to eat!" and everybody agrees, that means everyone pays for themselves.
- In a packed elevator, the people standing nearest to the doors are supposed to step outside at all the stops in order to let people exit.
- Wherever a woman decides to sit, the man should open her door for her and help her get out of the car.
- The rules of etiquette have decided that it’s worse to put your rear end in their face, so go to your seat while facing the other people sitting.

Thus is lot of rubbish and I am from the UK

3 months ago

The British made things complicated. In my culture it is more important to show kindness, honesty, say thank you and please a lot, dress appropriately (cover up) and have healthy personal space. As for umbrellas on the ground and asking wifi passwords there is no issue.

1 month ago

Sorry I’m not wearing clothes in my house😏

1 month ago

🤔 I take issue with a few items ...

1 - I’m not wearing anything in my own home. Nope. If someone comes over, I’ve got clothes hanging on a hook nearby, but behind my closed door, they come off the minute I get home.

2 - I categorically r e f u s e to spend my hard earned money on candy at a movie theater. Nope. SO not happening. At $20 a ticket, theater owners already get more than enough from me.

3 - Your last entry should have ‘politics’ as what not to discuss. It may have been mentioned earlier, but so were a couple of other things on the list. NEVER discuss politics. Ever ever e v e r!!
