Lest you think I have drifted too far from my life as the etiquette lady and Texas Manners with all that vomit conversation, I thought it would be a good time to review some of the faux pas of etiquette...just in time for all the Spring events.
The Hand Crusher: Just because one is capable of achieving a crushing grip, there is no reason to use it in any situation other than arm-wrestling! A handshake should be firm, but not overwhelming. I do believe that embossing my rings into my flesh exceeds the definition of "firm."
The Spitter: Colds and flu aside, no one wants a "shower" of conversation. The proper cutting retort? "Do you have a towel to go with that shower?"
The Space Invader: No matter how far you retreat, this guy manages to get right in your face. Invariably, he is also a Spitter, has a hacking cough or sporting open sores. If you're lucky, maybe all three!
