16 Etiquette Rules We Should Always Follow While In Public To Make A Good Impression
We don’t live in the same world as our parents and grandparents. That world is gone and now we live in a digital world. But there are certain rules that our parents and grandparents followed that still lives on with us. These rules and etiquettes are good to follow as they show what kind of person we are.
These simple dos and don’ts will help us make a great impression among our friends, colleagues and even bosses. They are easy to remember and simple to follow and you may even agree to a majority of them.
1Don’t occupy a mirror with a sink to do your makeup
If you went to use a toilet stall and came out to see two of the three sinks occupied by people washing their hands and one occupied by someone putting on makeup, how would you feel? It is wrong to occupy something that people are trying to use for little things. If you do need to fix your hair or makeup, please try to do it fast.
2Always text or message if you’re late
No one likes waiting for someone. This is just a normal basic human fact. If you have plans to meet someone and you’re late, send them a quick text saying you’ll be late so that they can occupy themselves while you come. They won’t have to stare at the door patiently waiting for your arrival. It is your responsibility to let others know that you’re late due to whatever reason.
3Don’t cover the bathroom mirror for a group selfie
This is something that has been seen many times. It’s an online meme where a group of people are trying to take a bathroom group selfie only to be photobombed by someone waiting to use the toilet. This is not good public behavior and something that should be avoided. You can take a single selfie if you want but when taking a group selfie, do it outside.
4Dab your mouth before drinking
When you’re having something to drink with your food you should always dab your mouth before you take a sip. This will help you get rid of food particles around your mouth that might get stuck to your glass. Not only will it make your glass look dirty and disgusting, but it might also make the other people in your party feel grossed out.
