Table Manners: How to Behave in the Modern World and Why Bother by Jeremiah Tower
It has happened more than once now that I've been at dinner parties where everyone (except me - no data on my phone, whoops!) is on their phone. I've looked around, wondering if anyone wanted to have a conversation, but no, so I just focused on eating my food.
Tower addresses cell phone and social media use in the chapter on Techiquette. Thank you! I am now wondering if I should use a basket at the front door to collect cell phones when friends come over. Think they will comply?
Tower also discusses all sorts of manners when it comes to hosting, being a guest, and eating out at a restaurant.
If you need a refresher course on manners, this is a sweet, little book that will get you up to speed.
