Country Living magazine posted a list of 50 social etiquette rules we don’t pay enough attention to these days. Here are some of the best ones that may or may not describe people we work with at the radio station!

1.  Classic Things People Used To Do:

  • Always say please and thank you.
  • Hold the door for people.
  • Try hard to be on time.
  • Send handwritten thank-you notes.
  • Bring food to people, like when there’s a new neighbor or someone passes away.

 

2.  Phone Etiquette:

  • Step away to answer a call.
  • Look at someone when they’re talking to you, not your phone.
  • Mute your ringtone when you’re at a movie, or anywhere else it might annoy people.
  • Return phone calls as soon as possible.

 

3.  When You’re Out in Public:

  • Wear decent clothes, not pajama bottoms.
  • Don’t swear, especially around kids.
