The first meeting for further communication, as a traffic light at the crossing. From the first minutes of communication, we turn on either a green or a red light in the minds of our new acquaintances. 90% of the success of further cooperation depends on the first meeting.
Today, we will add to knowledge another 10 “chips” of etiquette, according to which influential people “read” us from the first moments.
To begin with, etiquette is the language of mutual respect. And if you want to surround yourself with universally respected and self-respecting people, you need to speak and think with them in the same language.

What you need to remember
2. On "You" should refer to every person over the age of 12.
This applies to all, including service personnel. You will lose your respect right away if you refer to “you” to the driver or waiter.
3. A man always takes off his hat
The only exceptions are the cover of the head of the clergy and those who adhere to religious canons. The woman in the room has the opportunity to stay in a hat and gloves, but not in a hat and mittens!
4. The umbrella never dries anywhere in the open
It should be closed and hung, if there is no special stand.
5. The first sneaks - a man
In the conference hall, as well as the cinema, the theater, in a word, wherever there is a theatrical seating in its place, one should go face-to-face, not back. The first sneaks - a man.
6. Topics that should not be touched upon at the first meeting and in a generally unfamiliar company.
It is also not worth discussing the actions of absent general acquaintances, your age, wealth, prayer, the composition of drugs and a love affair.
Glasses with drinks should be kept in your left hand in order for the right one to be dry, warm and free to shake hands. Treats on the buffet table should choose those that do not need to bite off.
Attention! A glass of champagne stand a separate item! Since the vessels for white and red wine have all been sorted out, but with champagne - the most common punctures. Only a waiter is holding a glass of champagne with a thin leg. Guests boldly lift it to the bottom of the bowl!
9. bad form
10. Bag and briefcase put on the floor.
A small handbag can be put on your lap, only a clutch can be put on the table.
The most important thing is not to follow these rules only when meeting with interesting people, but to make them part of your life.
