- Don't ask for the Wi-Fi password.
- Take off your shoes before stepping on the hosts' lovely carpet.
- Don't explore bedrooms without permission.
- Don't raid the host’s fridge or help yourself to food without being offered.
- Don't bring your pet without asking first. I’m sure your chihuahua is the cutest thing ever, but somebody in the house may have a pet allergy.
- It's considered good manners to bring a gift if you’re invited to a party.

- Your open umbrella takes up a lot of space and could inconvenience other people. You should just close it and put it on an umbrella stand or a hook.
- A handbag or purse should be hung on the back of a chair or put on the floor if there isn't one.
- A robe and sleepwear are meant only for going to the bathroom in the morning and from the bathroom to the bedroom in the evening.
- As soon as your kids are in elementary school, ask permission before entering their room. This way, your children will do the same when coming into your bedroom.
- Women may leave their fashion hats on at weddings, lunches, or garden parties. They don't have to take their decorative hat off at religious services or at the movies either.
- If a woman invites a business partner to a restaurant, she pays. If someone says, "Let's go out to eat!" and everybody agrees, that means everyone pays for themselves.
- In a packed elevator, the people standing nearest to the doors are supposed to step outside at all the stops in order to let people exit.
- Wherever a woman decides to sit, the man should open her door for her and help her get out of the car.
- The rules of etiquette have decided that it’s worse to put your rear end in their face, so go to your seat while facing the other people sitting.
