What is this thing etiquette? It sounds like a large, ugly animal who can’t get out a fart. I cannot stand this word and I think it should be deleted from the dictionary and the whole world!!!!!!!!!!!

in bloom. she crosses her legs at the knees, not the ankles, lets her grandmother see, and smiles.

I think that there is a huge lack of etiquette. I wish that we still lived in a time when people still lived in a Chivalrous manner. When gentleman courted young ladies and YOUNG LADIES ACTED LIKE YOUNG LADIES. I wish that there was a man out there like that still.

To be treated in such a foul way, disgusts me. Playing constant games. Tossing and turning into an obsequious waste. Boys do not have proper etiquette when it comes to love.

being proper and sitting at a dinner table and having to choose the right silverware at the right time. really bouncy curls that are plopping around while picking utensils up…red or blonde bouncy curls and pale skin. even though none of this is me or ever had to follow proper etiquette

oh the rules of being good. it’s all bullshit really. when you fart in some ancient culture that probably meant being extremely courteous to your host. i’d like to make up a rule that involves placing a lampshade on your head and saying hello to the queen twice backwards. only way to truly have good manners is to shut up all the time in every place. i hope to write a book about it. i hope to break every rule first. i hope to get drunk and take a crap on a golf course green. ideally, the signature hole.

Etiquette. Easy to be angry at, and even easier to forget.
Her hand hovered over the mouse. To send or not to send? Everyone else cracked jokes with the client about opposing counsel, and the client was willing to crack jokes with her, but…what if cranky OPC found out?
She wanted to be funny. She did. And she was tired of OPC’s crankiness.
But…better safe than sorry. Etiquette over fun it was.
She deleted a sentence and then pressed send, and got on with her life.

I believe this word mean doing good.. dressed up..being proper and cool…this is me…etiquette. etiquette is what some people don’t have…not me i have it…unlike certain ones. I have good dressing language..and voice:]

is delicate. and if you have the proper etiquette you can dine with the queen. it is also a difficult word to spell. i always forget the double ts.

It’s all about being polite, but not too uptight. You have to be nice, but don’t suck up to people. Being a girl is hard, and you have to be classy, sassy, and never trashy, which is maybe the hardest thing to achieve as a high schooler. Keep working on those manners!
By Nicole on 07.13.2011
I guess I have to behave myself now. I guess everything that I’ve ever learned has to be tweaked, because being polite isn’t enough. There is more to it than that. You need grace. You need poise. You need to know which fork to use. Yes, behaving has never been enough. You need…etiquette?

I never understood not knowing etiquette for a very long time. It was rammed into me when I was younger and it was understood that if you did not use the etiquette that you were brought up with then I would shame my mother and no one would want us to come over anymore. My children will definitely use etiquette – even if it kills me!
By Jaggarte URL on 07.13.2011
Etiquette dictates that you don’t involve your adult children in the dissolution of your marriage. Or at least you don’t make them the middle men who you ask to do your dirty work. But then, some people have no etiquette do they? They just do whatever they want and expect to get away with it. But I will not be a pawn in their game. The rules of etiquette apply to all and all shall follow!

You must always be polite boy. I know that Grandma smells bad and thinks the Mexicans down the streets from us are really the commies that Senator McCarthy is always warning us about, but when she still had all her marbles and knew what year it was, it was her that taught you the utmost importance of etiquette. Remember, you will get like that one day and your own children will have to help you into the wheelchair and reminding you that those nice Mexicans down the street are not really going to blow up the neighborhood.
By Vanessa URL on 07.13.2011
I lack the etiquette when it comes to attempting to leave a friend’s home earlier than planned. The times are good, but the space between the good and the bad ones are getting longer and longer. I don’t want to overstay my welcome, but my couch sounds pretty good right now!
By Fender2010 URL on 07.13.2011
Oh you, prim and proper all standing there dabbing your pouty lips with a linen napkin in your linen pants, untucked linen shirt and loafers. Oh you. So dandy and taut.

Jane Austen captured its pitfalls and value better than anyone else! I often ask myself, what would Elizabeth Bennet do?
By tasha on 07.13.2011
what is considered proper etiquette? no, no, do not think of table manners, think about proper etiquette in life. being kind to others. respect. having patience. being clean. being lady-like and gentlemen-like.

Etiquette, the most variable of human standards. In England, persons do not speak to one another until properly introduced by a mutual acquaintance. In the Middle East, burping during meals is not only accepted but encouraged. And, in my family, the word please, a staple of American typical etiquette, is quickly vanishing.
By Julia D URL on 07.13.2011
Proper etiquette for good work relationships did NOT involve sleeping with your boss. Or her on-again, off-again lover. Of almost 100 years. Who was also a vampire. And sometimes wanted to kill all of you.
But that wasn’t the point. The point was that he wasn’t just sleeping with the vampire genius who wanted to kill them.
No, he was sleeping with the vampire genius who wanted to kill them and his boss.
At the same time.
Yeah, Henry was really screwed.

like something you see at a fancy dinner, with fancy people that always judge you and how you eat and your manners and how you look and how much money you come from it always goes back to money everything stems from money no matter where you are or who your with it is the most important thing to people in this reality, no one you find will pick love over a million dollars its just not possible no one does it anymore they say etiquette is based off of keeping standards but it is based off of money and who can show they have more etiquette than others, it doesnt matter how much “etiquette” you have just how much money you have. so when you want to impress someone with manners just put a wad of money on the table and look for a facial reaction I promise you’ll get something and that will count more than any type of etiquette you can possibly show

Etiquette was something that Matthew didn’t really understand. He sat there, pants and shirt frayed, legs spread, elbows on the table. He didn’t care. Fuck the world. Fuck etiquette. He didn’t have time for fancy shit like that.
By Dorian on 07.13.2011
I don’t really understand the big deal about etiquette. And that’s funny, for someone who actually wants to be a Southern belle. (Despite, of course, being Canadian) I mean, sure, there are standards in life, but who cares how you hold your fork as long as you get the food in your mouth? All the little particularities mean absolutely nothing to me. There’s a difference between being classy and being “brought up right”, I think.
By Alethea Bakogeorge URL on 07.13.2011
Etiquette is becoming increasingly less prevalent in the world we live in today. Try as I might, my humor comes through before my etiquette skills show themselves when I am presenting myself to new people. I should really try harder to show that I can use proper etiquette, but then I realized, that just wouldn’t be me anymore.

I sat across the table, with my napkin on my lap watching the people walk pass the restaurant. I waited for my date, but as the time continued, the waiter became impatient.’
“Miss, you have to leave now, ” and before he could finish, he showed up.
“Sorry, I’m late –”
“You’re an hour late.”
By V. Vergara URL on 07.13.2011
What a stupid word. This is the type of word that rich people throw in people’s faces when they want you to act a certain way. Why don’t they go and pick an easy word for us lower class people?! You think that would be more effective.
By Jen URL on 07.13.2011
Etiquette is how mannered you are. or something. over seas they say it like etiKATE. and drag the a. sounds nasty. but i guess thats their etiquette. that was a great pun :)
By Rasha URL on 07.13.2011
is stupid. fuck it. who cares. pick your nose. eat your toenails.
grandma didnt know what she was talking about.
i believe that farting outloud, though, is pretty uncouth. goddam, leave the room. especially if youre a woman.
other than that, do what you want. it dont matter.
blah blah blah blah

His etiquette was atrocious. He ate the plate of spaghetti like a half-starved hyena, dribbling sauce and noodles all over the napkin-bib he had tucked into his shirt. He smelled of cheap cologne, and I mean, he REALLY smelled like cheap cologne. He leaned with his elbows on the table and screamed loudly over the table to his companions, who were as embarrased about him as every one else was disgusted.

Social constructs are something that I never payed attention to. Etiquette, being the social construct that it is, has never been a concern of mine. What is etiquette but something designed by the upper echelons of our society for us to dutifully attend to? I choose dishonour.
By sakura URL on 07.13.2011
i have no etiquette really i just kind of do whatever although i know when i need to mannerly (if thats a word) i always am ya know? i just fix myself up for whoever needs to see me that way. sounds weird. its not like im not myself with people. i am. i just know how to act :) lolol theres still time left la la la di daaaa derp derp herp
By rebecca on 07.13.2011
Oh, fuck etiquette. Who needs to be civilized? Sure, if it’s a situation where one has to be polite to get a job or an important friend, by all means do what you have to do. But in the comfort of your own home? Give me a break.

Etiquette is essential when attending an awe-inspiring evening at an elegant English extravaganza.
By Samantha on 07.13.2011
When one person acts or performs in a manner which is perceived by those how know them as unnatural in order to impress another person of whom they wish to, in their pants, get.
By Dylan on 07.13.2011
everyone needs good etiquette, for pretty much everything. You need etiquette for dinner, for parties, for concerts, for church, even for love making. You need to know what to do and when to do it, or your screwed (or, in the love making situation, your not screwed :) ) Etiquette can make or break your life, so learn it so you can be a good person.
By Ariel K. URL on 07.13.2011
I never really know how to set a table or be polite. it’s crazy what you can learn from old people though. My grandma is a total formal freak, and I kind of love it. She’s always a had a really royal way about her, like she was related to the queen or something. I wish I was more like that sometime, but I’ve always been a bit of a hippie.
By Madeline on 07.13.2011
placing my napkin in my lap as soon as i got to the table to indicate that the meal had started, and looking across the wood to see that my date had not done so, it made me realize that we were from two completely different worlds. he probably didn’t even know that you tell a bride best wishes and a groom congratulations at a wedding. uncultured newbie.
By Suzanne on 07.13.2011
I wish I had learn proper etiquette. Maybe I would teach my children, and they would teach their children, and they theirs, and they theirs. We would have been THE Etiquette family, but not anymore.
