If you aren't sure whether to write a thank you note or not, always write one just to have good manners.
Some people have low self-esteem and can’t imagine others paying them a complement.
If the service is really great or you are in a fancy restaurant you may tip 20%.
The concierge is the person who “ knows everything and can help with almost any problem.” Tip him or her between $5.00 and $10.00.
For food delivery people, tip about $1.00 per pizza or person’s meal.Tip more if they have to climb stairs or carry a lot of food.
Offer to run errands, like going to the grocery store, the post office, and tanks siblings to practices.
Ask permission before eating, because someone may need it for a special dish or meal.
When dealing with rude adults, the best policy is to reply with patience, a good sense of humor, and a smile. It will drive them crazy that’s a teenager has better manners then they do!
Don’t arrive too early because the host might not be ready for guest yet.
You do what to be time and not make others wait on you, especially if it is a dinner party.
If you are an overnight guest,be sure you clean the bathroom after you use it and make your bed.
Offer to help clean up. Carry dishes to the kitchen, wash or dry dishes, take out the trash, or sweep the floor.
When introducing people, say the “greater”person’s name first, and introduce the “lesser” person to the “grater”. For example, say the most important or oldest person first and the less important or younger second.
When someone is introducing you or someone to you, you should not sit, but stand.
Then reply with a polite greeting, such as “Nice to meet you” or “How do you do?”
If the person introduces you has forgotten your name, help him or her out by saying, “hello, my name is (whatever your name is).”
First say, “Hello, this is (your name).” You always want to identify yourself.
