  • Is it rude to go to a restaurant right when it opens?

    I know it’s annoying if a restaurant is closing at 10pm, and a customer comes in at 9:50pm, but is it rude if a restaurant opens at 10:30am, and a customer comes in at 10:40am?

  • How can I ask female customers a question that in ordinary circumstances would be regarded as very personal without seeming rude?

    Shortly before Christmas my uncle died and I was surprised to learn that he bequeathed me his scuba diving businesses at Cobalt Coast in the Cayman Islands.

    Shortly before Christmas my uncle died and I was surprised to learn that he bequeathed me his scuba diving businesses at Cobalt Coast in the Cayman Islands. I have been looking over the figures and believe the business could do a lot better if we reduced the prices. A big part of the cost customers have to pay is due to us being forced to pay insurance premiums to cover us if something gos wrong. For example, shark attacks. As everyone knows, sharks are attracted to the smell of blood and so I believe that if we can guarantee that women scuba divers are not ovulating, then we can probably reduce the prices for everyone. However, I can't think of a polite way to make this inquiry. Please could someone suggest the good etiquette for asking female customers if they're on their period before they go scuba diving?

  • My roommate constantly has her friends, sister, and boyfriend over.?

    One or more are here almost everyday, hours on end, late Into the night. And if they are here ate into the night they are loud!

    One or more are here almost everyday, hours on end, late Into the night. And if they are here ate into the night they are loud! I like them as people, but I think it's ridiculous that they are here 5 or 6 days out of the week, eating the food, using our electronics and using our washer and dryer and shower. I'm moving out in a few months and I have been saying I just have to wait till then, but it's getting worse. Her sister has been spending the night for the past week. No warning, explanation just here, and non of them contribute. I'm getting so irritated, and I understand some of it is the fact im introverted and people wear me out and I just want to come home most of the time to a dark quiet house (I work till 10pm). But MOST of the issue I think should just be common courtesy to not be loud, or constantly have your friends, boyfriend, and family over, and even over night. Should I just point it out to her? Or suffer the last 2 months.

  • Is it strange to use your t-shirt as a makeshift napkin?

    Either when you don't have a napkin/tissue near or in general? To rub off a small layer of grease covering your mouth. I just want to know if my etiquette is bad or not. In any case, should I be so worried about how other people view my cleanliness?

  • If you were the only one out of a group not invited somewhere would you feel offended?

    Best answer: The trouble with these scenarios is that you feel offended and think a group has done something to you without cause. People generally react to us as a response to how we behave towards them. You should seriously consider if you have given this group could reason to want to exclude you. If you can honestly say you... show more
    Best answer: The trouble with these scenarios is that you feel offended and think a group has done something to you without cause. People generally react to us as a response to how we behave towards them. You should seriously consider if you have given this group could reason to want to exclude you.

    If you can honestly say you have done nothing you could ask. If these situations people often do not want to offend so you may not be given a truthful answer or even be told it did not happen the way you see it. Alternatively, the may be bluntly honest and you have to be prepared to hear things you do not like.

    If you can genuinely say you have done nothing to upset this group and you believe that their behaviour is entirely inappropriate the time has come for you to find another group of associates.

Everyone is focused on her and how amazing her achievement is. Its not even her achievement, its the drs achievement. I don't see the big deal of all of this and dont really care. Nobody seems to care that my birthday is next week nor what they should get me for it! Instead they care more about celebrating my stupid friend. why are people acting like this is some big deal and how do i get them to focus on me and my birthday?

    My co-worker and I are community event planners. Think of the show Parks and Recreation. My director recently left so I'm acting as the temporary director but still have my event planner job. Basically I'm doing two jobs until a new director is hired. My co-worker isn't the most courteous person. It's doesn't manner if you're in a time crunch working on a project she will barge right in. Not just a quick question or two: I'm talking constant interruptions. We have a meeting yesterday with our department head (my temporary boss). I couldn't believe how many times my co-worker cut off my boss mid sentance during the meeting. Very rude and to do it to the boss yikes! Anyways we had a special program this week. My 8 hour days were pretty much 10-12 hour days the entire week. I'm salaried so I only get 8 hours and no overtime. Here's what was potentially rude: I asked my co-worker if there was anything she needed or wanted to discuss. I told her I had to be out on time today because I had an evening commitment. I don't think I had a tone in my voice when I said it. But for the first time she actually left me alone and wasn't talking constantly. This was a first. I could be working on payroll or analyzing budgets (things that require concentration) and that never stopped her before. She just seemed really angry the rest of the day and hardly said anything. Usually she talks frequently. Does this sound rude or was it about time I stood up to her? Thanks!

    A 43-year-old woman is talking to a 22-year-old younger women in a pool, in a group of similarly aged guys. The 43-year-old woman coaxes the 22-year-old woman with flattery to go skinny dipping. She is slightly reluctant at first, but asks everyone else if they are comfortable with her getting naked. After they respond in the positive, she takes her bikini off. The 43-year-old can't take her eyes off of the 22-year-old. She exclaims "Good Lord, honey! You've got a body from Heaven! I would trade years off my life to have pretty, perky boobs like yours again." How would you interpret this situation? Would you assume the older woman is sexually attracted to the younger woman, or is she just admiring her beauty?
