Etiquette for the New Age

New trend comes and goes, but good manners should stay and will always be appreciated. The basic etiquette is to treat others with consideration and respect. Let’s see if you agree to the following etiquette discussed in this MSNBC News video:
  • It is fine to “de-friend” a Facebook friend if you no longer feel comfortable to be attached with that person. 
  • One may buy a smaller gift if attending a destination wedding, depending on the person’s budget.  
  • If a client is sick but s/he wants to shake your hand, do it but wash your hand immediately afterwards. If you are sick, you may refuse to shake hands and explain to the client that you are sick.  
  • It is inappropriate to text or play with any gadgets when one is with others, regardless how busy s/he is. S/he may excuse herself/himself if it is absolutely necessary.
