Rules of etiquette. COMMON MISTAKES:

A woman can not shoot indoors hat and gloves, but no hat and mittens.

TOTAL emblazoned on international protocol should not exceed 13 items, and this includes jewelry buttons. Over the gloves do not wear a ring, but the bracelet is permissible. The darker the street, the more expensive jewelry. Diamonds once considered a decoration for the evening and married women, however, has recently become permissible to wear diamonds and day.

TERMS OF PAYMENT ordering in a restaurant, if you utter the phrase: "I invite you" - which means you pay. If a woman invites a business partner in a restaurant, it pays. Another formulation: "Let's go to a restaurant" - in this case, each person pays for himself and only if the man himself offers to pay for a woman, she may agree.

Men are always the first part of the elevator, but the output of the first one who is closer to the door.

The CAR is considered the most prestigious seat behind the driver, it is a woman, a man sits down next to her, and when he comes out of the machine, holds the door and takes the lady's hand. If a man is sitting behind the wheel, the woman is also preferable to take a seat behind him. However, no matter where you sat, the man must open the door in front of you and help out. In the business etiquette in recent years more and more men violate this rule, using the slogan of feminists: "In business, there are no women and men».

Speak up about what you are sitting on a diet - a bad tone. Moreover, it is impossible under this pretext to refuse food offered by the hospitable hostess. Be sure to praise her culinary talents, and you can not eat anything. You should also deal with alcohol. Why you can not drink - it's your problem. Ask a dry white wine and a little sip.

Taboo subjects for small talk: politics, religion, health, money. Inappropriate question: "God, what a dress! How much do you pay? "How to respond? Cute smile: "It's a gift!" Turn the conversation to another topic. If the interviewee insists gently say, "I would not want to speak about it».

To every person who has reached 12 years, relying on contact "you". Disgusting to hear our "elite" tells "you" waiters, or drivers. Even those people with whom you are familiar, in the office better handle on the "you", "you" - only in private. Exception - if you peers or close friends. How to react if the person obstinately "poke" you? Please ask again: "Excuse me, do you turn to me?" If you do not help, look around in bewilderment: "Excuse me, you got me you mean?" The next phase - neutral shrug: "Sorry, but we did not go on" you ».

DISCUSS absence, that is simply gossip, is unacceptable. It is not permissible to speak ill of relatives, in particular to discuss their husbands, as we have taken. If the husband is bad - why are you with him razvedeshsya? And just as impermissible to disdain, with a grimace speak about his native country.
