Essential Manners for Men

• Second Edition •

What to Do, When to Do It, And Why

Peter Post

Page 128

Use a coaster for your drink.
Don’t be a snoop.
Own up to any problem you cause like breaking a glass, spilling wine, or
clogging a toilet.
Smoke outside if you must at all.
Don’t put your feet up on the furniture, and use couches and chairs for what
they are meant to be used: sitting in.
Offer to help pass hors d’oeuvres, mix drinks, or clear the table.

Leave with the Others
All good things must come to an end. Take notice of when other guests are
leaving and head out at around the same time.

THANK YOU
As you prepare to leave make sure you find your hosts and thank them for
inviting you and for the wonderful evening. Then, the next day, call and express
your thanks again and/or write them a note. We have a good friend who writes us
every time she comes to dinner. Those notes are a pleasure to receive, and we are
sure to invite her back time and again.

Reciprocate

The party’s over; the thank yous have been made. What’s next? It’s your
turn. Part of socializing is going to other people’s homes to enjoy an
evening together. But there is a social obligation to reciprocate and invite
your friends over to your house as well. Chapter 19 takes a look at how to
have a date or friends come to your home.
