Etiquette Tips

Saying please and thank you goes a long way. It's so simple, but it means a lot to the person hearing it. It's also important to remember to say these things not just to people you know, but to those you don't know that are doing something for you - such as waiters and store clerks. You'll be surprised how much better service you'll get just for saying please and thank you.

Keep stamped and addressed envelopes on hand to put thank you notes in. This way as soon as you receive a gift or favor, half the work of sending a thank you note is already done.

Smile at everyone. It really helps with meeting new people, as it puts the other person at ease. Also, "smile" when you are answering the phone, the person on the other end can tell.

When in a public setting, either turn your cell phone off or set it to vibrate. Public settings include meetings, movie theatres, parties, on public transportation and while in line to check out at stores. Also, if you must answer your phone, excuse yourself from these situations as to not offend others around you.

Holding the door for others is always the proper thing to do, regardless of whether you are male or female. Hold the door open for anyone who happens to be coming in as you're going out, or is going out as you are also leaving.

Dress yourself well. Not only does dressing well give you confidence to face others, but it allows the person you are speaking with to pay more attention to you instead of your weird, wacky, or inappropriate clothing.

Teaching kids manners at an early age is a good thing. In fact it's never too early to start teaching a child about please, thank you, excuse me, you're welcome, and other basics. It's also easier to teach good manners young then to have to fix bad ones when they are older.

When traveling to other countries, keep in mind that their etiquette rules will be different then those in your home country. Take some time before heading out to learn what some of the differences are.

When at a party, always arrive a few minutes early, and never late. Remember to thank the host/hostess for inviting you. Also remember to mingle with both the person hosting the party and the other guests.

When meeting someone older or in a high ranking position, you should always address them by their last name or profession (ie: Dr.). Allow them to be the one to tell you that formalities are not necessary and you can call them by their first name.

Upon receiving a gift, be sure to write a thank-you note. A "thank-you" e-mail or text message is not good enough! The gift-giver will appreciate the thought you have put into the note and knowing that you appreciate the gift.

Always look someone in the eye when talking to them. This shows you are confident in what you are talking about. Looking at them while they are talking also shows you are paying attention to what they are saying.

Remember your table manners while eating. You do not want to make a spectacle of yourself while dining out. Remember to use your napkin and your utensils!

This rule is not only for etiquette but for health too. Make sure when you cough or sneeze that you cover your mouth with your hand or arm.
