I spotted this brilliant innovation at Upper Crust in Oklahoma City, a local restaurant in Classen Curve. What a great reminder for people that chew gum to lose it before they say another word! Without these little cards, guests would be choosing between retiring to the powder room, swallowing their gum, rolling gum in a paper napkin, or re-living elementary school by sticking it under the table or their chair.
Cheers to Upper Crust for such a fun reminder of good manners. I’d love to see these included in programs at weddings and funerals; a gentle, direct reminder of the manners required for those kind of occasions.Best regards,
When David Beckham arrived at Westminster Abbey for the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton last week he was proudly displaying his Order of the British Empire Medal, a medal he received for his service to British soccer.
Photos from the beginning of the day’s events show that when David arrived his medal was pinned to his right lapel, a significant faux pas, as any kind of medal or lapel pin belongs on the left.
Someone in the know must have alerted David, as his medal was moved to the left later in the morning. Aside from his brief etiquette mishap, David looked absolutely sharp in his suit and tie.Best regards,
