You would think that by now, in 2015, we would have all of our dos and don’ts sorted when it comes to etiquette, but it seems as though things have become quite merky in the manners department, as we move further away from the picturesque past and into the internet era.
Nowadays we have more digital conversations than real ones and all those little rules about manners are super easy to slip the mind. You may say that formal decorum has become dated, but I’m here to tell you that doing things properly will serve you well in the long run. At the end of the day, etiquette is there to glue us all together, and will make working, living, eating, loving, and playing alongside one another easier.
Let’s talk about the etiquette of drinking and dining. There are a few simple rules I sometimes have to remind myself of, like dressing appropriately for the occasion (yes, I too dream of a world where we all wear pyjamas to work). It’s really a pleasure to dress nicely for something special like a wedding or birthday… So why not indulge in that same delight when you plan to dine out? And sorry, rubber flip-flops are definitely not classified in this category.
