Consideration – The first rule of Etiquette

“Good Manners reflect something from inside – an innate sense of consideration for others and respect for self.”  – Emily Post

Daily Life and Bad habits

  • Spitting
  • Smoking and chewing tobacco
  • Sloppy dressing
  • Wearing a hat where they shouldn’t
  • Nose picking
  • Adjusting
  • Swearing and being disrespectful to Women

Some Men – just don’t get it ?  The art of Etiquette really comes down to being thoughtful of people you encounter in your life all of the time.  The list above is from my friends that I play Bunco with, and they gave me the traits they see in their Husbands and Boyfriends.

The deal breaker for me would be Spitting and Chewing!  So what do you see out there in daily life with the Men you live with, work with and socialize with?  Let me know and drop me some comments.

    Love this article. The sad thing is these people had parents once…why weren’t they taught about etiquette?

    Loved your list! And you worded it so tactfully! I once read that real graciousness is always making everyone around you feel at ease. Whatever they are doing, the gracious person takes it in stride and continues to make them feel comfortable and accepted. This doesn’t help educate people though. Your blog is one way people can learn these things so they don’t put others in the awkward position of kindly overlooking their errors or inconsiderate choices.

    As much as I LOVE my hubby to pieces, he talks like a sailor…and that’s putting it lightly! Over the past 12 years that we’ve known each other, he has toned down quite a bit, so I’m proud of him for that! 🙂
