  • It should not be crumpled or twisted, which reveal untidiness or nervousness.

  • Nor should it be folded, which might show that you think your host might reuse it without washing.

  • An employer will generally let you order first; his or her order will be taken last. Sometimes, however, the server will decide who orders first. Often, women’s orders are taken before men’s.
