Get a firm grasp on how to behave anywherefrom tailgates to weddings, the office to the deck of a boatin this fully illustrated, authoritative yet festive guide Everyday Etiquettecovers all the basics: how to write a thank you note, which spoon to grab when the soup bowl hits the table, what to wear as a guest at a wedding. But the core of this book is what to do in those uncommon social situationsthe ones that can leave readers stuck or sticking out like the proverbial sore thumbs. Everyday Etiquettedecodes the smooth, easy way to: --"petiquette," having the best pooch on the block --saying the perfect thing at a funeral --acknowledge a gift --navigate an open house --respond to a request for a favor and to say no --smoke a cigar in public --attend a bat mitzvah or confirmation ceremony --remember someone's name on the spot --behave if you work in a cubicle Etiquette isn't just something to turn to when we're expected to behave formally. It exists to ease social tension in daily life and make interactions between people easy, with no ruffled feathers or hurt feelings. Everyday Etiquetteunderstands that etiquette is about real life, and will be an essential, streamlined resource.
