Top 10 Rules of Table Manners #ButlerBootCamp

  • iFarrago

    Leave your napkin on your chair if you aren't finished (not "done" - a roast is "done") and need to go to the bathroom. Never put your napkin on your plate when you are finished. Don't hold your fork like you're stabbing your meat while you cut it. Then there are the rules of how to place your silverware during the meal to indicate whether or not you are "finished" with your meal (not "done!") so your server won't take your plate while you aren't present; then how to place them when you are finally finished. Ultimately, if someone has good manners (e.g. being polite to the wait staff or host), but doesn't know proper etiquette that's better than knowing proper etiquette and having poor manners. You can learn etiquette, but by a certain age of someone has poor manners then they will probably always have them. To make the distinction: It's poor manners to mock someone for not knowing proper etiquette. You just show by example. Not everyone has the same advantages, but can always learn.
