Etiquette is something everyone needs to know

For everyone:
When friends come to call on you, don't look at your watch, lest they think you desire them to leave.
NEVER pick the teeth, scratch the head, blow the nose or clean your nails in company.
Never correct a person publicly.
Do not laugh at funny things being said until the climax is reached.
Do not go into public smelling of onions or garlic.
"It is not polite at a wedding to congratulate the bride. She should receive wishes for her future happiness. The bridegroom in the one who is to be congratulated; he is the fortunate one."
A husband and wife should not play cards together, nor should two persons be partners in every game.
Always be on time.
"Do not laugh at your own wit, allow others to do it."


Do not place your arm on the back of a chair occupied by a woman.

During a walk in the country, climbing a hill or walking along a stream, if the lady is tired and sits upon the ground, do not seat yourself next to her. Remain standing until she is rested.

"A gentlemen never swaggers along the street, shouting or laughing with his companions, his hat on one side, a cigar between his fingers, or switching a cane to the danger or discomfort of passers-by."

If he's smoking and a lady passes by, he removes the cigar from his mouth.

When escorting a woman in the daytime, he does not offer her his arm unless she is old or ill unless for the purpose of protecting her in a large croud.

He should not monopolize the umbrella when with two ladies in the rain. He should take the outside, holding it both over them.

If attending a lady in the evening he should offer his arm. If he has the care of two ladies, he should give his arm to one and the ladies should walk on the same side of him.

When entering a room with ladies, he removes his hat. When he meets a lady friend, he should raise his hat gracefully.

A gentleman holds the door open for a lady. He precedes the lady in ascending the stairs and allows her to precede in descending them.

"When a gentleman meets a lady friend with whom he wishes to converse, he does not make her stand on the street, but walks with her a short distance until he has said what he desired to, and then leaves her with a courteous bow."

When on the street, the gentleman should always carry the packages....and the husband should always carry the baby.

He should never smoke where ladies are present under any circumstances.

DO not shake a ladies hand in a manner that would annoy her or hurt her fingers.

Accompany your wife to the church of her choice.

For the Ladies:
A lady should always walk in an easy, unassuming manner, neither looking left nor right. If anything in a store window attracts her attention, she may stop and examine it, and then continue her walk.
A lady does not giggle or whisper in public. Talking loudly is "inexcusable" at all times.
Never "cut" a person in public. If there are reasons you wish to discontinue the acquaintance turn your head before meeting.
When bowing on the street, the lady should merely incline her head gracefully, never her body and should smile pleasantly.
She must never let a male talk to her in a slangy manner, touch her on the shoulder or call her by her first name in front of strangers.
"A lady at a ball should not burden a gentleman with her gloves, fan, and bouquet to hold while she dances unless he is her husband or brother."

Mr. Sardhar,
Good compilation!
However, I personally feel that it is more westernised! May be people need to know how to when they go abroad. Some simple manners need to be taught right at home to our own children. Learning process never ends, anyway.
Great work.

Dear Mr. Sardhar,
I want to know that if a company asks you to formulate and implement new HR policy and give a time frame to implement it, what should be done?

Adding to it, Etiquettes when sharing public facilities:

Etiquette tips for those waiting to enter the elevator:

1. If u or someone has already pushed the button, do not press the button again. Re-pushing the button does not bring the lift to ur floor faster.
2. While most people know that you press the ‘UP’ button to go up, and the ‘DOWN’ button to go down, u’d b surprised to see how many people do the opposite! Do not press both the buttons.
3. Please take ur place if a queue is already formed. It is rude to push ahead.
4. Do not form a queue in front of the doors, and do not stand in front of the buttons.
5. Please allow those exiting the elevator to get out first. If u accidentally get in the way of an exiting user, step back and apologize at once.
6. Enter the elevator in an orderly manner, as per ur position in the queue.
7. If u have pushed the button to stop the elevator on ur floor, be ready to get inside as soon as it arrives. It is rude to make those inside wait till u conclude ur conversation with someone who is not going to board the lift.
8. Help and allow those who are disabled, or may be in a wheel chair, or carrying a large packet in their arms or someone with a stroller to board before you.

Etiquette tips for those inside the elevator:

1. In a crowded lift, if u r unable to reach the button panel, it is okay to ask (request) someone else to press a button for u. Don’t forget to thank them.
2. If u happen to be standing close to the panel, graciously take the responsibility of pressing the buttons for those who are unable to reach the panel.
3. When you enter, move to the back if ur floor is one of the last, and of course, if it is possible to do so.
4. If a crowded elevator stops at floor before ur’s, and u happen to be near the doors, shuffle to one side of the elevator for an easy exit of others who are getting off. If it becomes necessary to step out, stand near to the door, hand stretched out to ensure that the door doesn’t close before u can quickly step in.
5. Some elevator doors close quickly. If u r inside and see the door closing even as people are entering , hold the door so that it does not shut on their faces.
6. If the lift is not crowded do not stand close to others.
7. If u have children with u, ensure that they do not play with the floor buttons, or create a racket in the confined space of the lift.
8. It is discourteous to hold the ‘Door Close’ button at the same tine you press ur floor button. You will reach ur floor non-stop, but it is inconsiderate for those wishing to get-off or on at intermediate floors.
9. If u r inside and see someone running towards the lift, do best to hold the door for them.

Etiquette tips for those exiting the elevator:

1.Get off quickly when ur floor arrives.
2. If u r too far back and ur floor arrives, do not push your way out. Merely say, “Excuse me please”. People will shuffle towards the lift walls and give way.
3. Do not make others in the lift wait while u complete ur conversation with someone who is not getting off at the same floor as you.

As said, Good Manners in all situations are important as they help in improving inter-personal relationships and creating a pleasant env. Hope we all try to follow what all has been shared by our senior member.
Thanx & Regards
