Etiquette and lifestyle: in this section I would like to mention and take up all manners that help us show respect not only at home but beyond our home, in society. I will highlight different ways and means through which we can show the society how much we care and appreciate. It’s easy to be rude but very difficult to be courteous and emphetetic. Let’s consider some few handy points to get started.

Dining out:

To ensure your dining out is an enjoyable experience for you and people dining out with you. It is necessary to follow certain protocol weather dining in a very formal restaurant or a casual place.

  • Treat the wait staff with utmost respect and courtesy as you would do to someone serving you at home.
  • What to do when?
  1. If you have dropped something on the floor, do not pick it up from the floor yourself and place it on the table. Tell your server, who will retrieve it and get a replacement for you.
  2. If your fork or glass is unclean wait for the server to pass by your table and ask for it to be replaced. Never wipe it with your napkin. Avoid making a fuss about it.
  3. If you spot a hair or a bug in the dish. Quietly catch the attention of a waiter and tell him the problem, he will quickly arrange for a replacement dish.

Official Life
