Nice Manners

A useful and funny piece in Inside Higher Ed on etiquette, or why rummaging through all the bread on the dinner table isn't the best way to make a good impression. Read the whole piece here and take notes.

The one not mentioned--turn off that phone! And if you didn't and it rings in a situation where it shouldn't have been on in the first place (class, a meeting, an interview, church), for goodness' sake don't answer it--just shut it off as quickly as possible.
