Manners for Today - Modern Etiquette

Sadly, manners have been thrown out the window with the hand-held phone.  What has happened?  Do you ever receive thank you notes anymore?  Even a text?  Nope. Do people not understand what R.S.V.P. means? Nope.  Do people always bring their phones to the dinner table?  Yes, even at parties or even worse, in restaurants. We are a nation of horribly rude people and it's getting worse.  Perhaps you can start giving some of these books as hostess gifts?  But do people even read anymore? Nope. I am not sure there is hope for our horribly rude nation.......But is seems that some authors are not giving up yet.....

Emily Post has tried to modernize her book (good luck with that), sorry but I cynical on this topic.....

And there is a new book coming out from the founder of The Plaza Hotel's Finishing Program (too bad DJT never attended, and it was in his own back yard). 

In her debut book, Modern Etiquette Made Easy, the Queen of Good Manners Myka Meier takes formal etiquette that she learned while training under a former member of the Queen of England’s household and breaks it down into five easy steps to help you feel 100 percent confident in the areas of social, dining, business, and networking etiquette.

In this refreshingly entertaining etiquette guide, Myka combines her passion for etiquette and love of humor to share tips that are sure to give you a competitive edge in both your social and professional life. Through easy-to-follow chapters and relatable lessons, you’ll learn how to: 
  • Create the best first impression
  • Become the most coveted party guest
  • Network like a pro
  • Practice good table manners
  • And much, much more!
Perfect for everyone who’s ever gone for the cheek kiss as the new acquaintance offered a handshake, or hobbled home from a networking event in stilettos. Fitting for messy-bun millennials who find themselves suddenly adulting without a clue, or mid-career professionals hoping to revamp their image. Or really, for anyone at all—at the end of the day, we could all use some more respect and kindness, and Modern Etiquette Made Easy offers advice and insight like a friend.

Pinkies down!

There are a lot of books out there, but my guess is much of this advice is just plain old common sense (but that also has been replaced).....
