Etiquette Class for Girls

After reciving several requests about whether or not I host regular workshops for girls, we finally figured out how to fit it into my schedule.

So starting April 7, 2010 I will host an 8-week session for girls ages 9 - 13 in my Oceanside office. This will be the only etiquette class for girls this age that I will provide for the 2010 calendar year. Next is teen girls followed by a class for boys. Afterwards you can find me at events hosted by local schools, civic and social organizations.

Co Worker with Bad Breath

It happens at some point or another. You have a co-worker that has bad breath. You know but for some reason they don't seem to realize. I mean they should be told right? But how to you tell someone things just aren't right without being rude. How does manners mix with that? What is one to do?

Who Does That?

Talk about social a faux pas!! Where's the manners in this one? So you somehow come across some photos of a recent PRIVATE wedding of a young girl you know(you just happen to be more close to her mom's age than hers). And you decide to take it upon yourself to contact the BRAND NEW bride and tell her a thing or two about how you thought you were "part of elite people" that would get invited to the wedding. You ream her about how you "thought you were close to the family" and how bad you feel about not being invited blah, blah, blah.

Who does that?!!!!

The NEW BRIDE then has to explain to you (again) that it was a PRIVATE wedding. And only family and her very close friends (in her age group) were invited.

Okay "Elite" one. Where is the "congratulations on your marriage" or "Best Wishes" or "I'm happy for you". UGH!!

Folks if you are not invited to a (PRIVATE) wedding. Get over it!! Be kind, use good manners, and say something nice. Hey here's a great idea! You can just say nothing at all! How about that? Oh, and stop thinking so highly of yourself. It is so not about you, it's about the Bride and Groom starting off a new life together.
