You Can Thank Emily Post for These Rules of Etiquette | Martha Stewart

The single essential ingredient of good manners is a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others.”   —   Emily Post

(But people are keenly aware of their own feelings!  To the detriment of the rest of us.  I’m relatively sure that Emily Post is spinning in her grave these days.  Generally, I’m comfortable with casual dress being as prevalent as it is, although I do feel that many instances DO still call for a suit and tie.  And combed hair, and either a nicely trimmed beard, or being clean shaven.  But it irks me to no end to see some men wearing hats indoors . . . in the presence of women!  These people have absolutely no couth!  And, don’t even get me started on some folks table “manners”.  I don’t care if they don’t use the proper utensil – from outside to in – but at least hold it properly.  And, chew with your damn mouths closed!  LOL!  Which, of course, leads to: don’t speak with food in your mouth!  We’ve devolved so badly – manners wise – that I can see folks eating from troughs in the near future.  End of sermon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The single essential ingredient of good manners is a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others.”   —   Emily Post

(In today’s age of entitlement – the opposite of the age of enlightenment? – it seems that that sensitive awareness has been replaced by a callous indifference of the feelings of others.  Although, I feel we do need to carefully weigh the feelings of others with the quest, and need, for the truth.  My very first Emily Post quotation!)   —   YUR

PS.  I just liked the sweetness of the Emily in this painting.   —   YUR

PS.  I “Published” this at 11:06 AM, on Monday 8/29/11, but as I checked the main page, this morning, it was *missing*!  Fortunately, I found it in my Drafts folder.  This is not the first time WordPress has hiccuped.  WordPress must have some kind of bug, and I sure wish they would fix the damn thing.  It’s crap like this that makes me look bad.      YUR

PPSAnd yet again this did not post, despite my “Publishing” it AGAIN!  It keeps ending up as a Draft.  I’m trying one last time before sending the Limeys a nasty note!   –   YUR
