We've gone to church, watching Meet The Press, took ground beef out of my freezer for meatballs, jotting notes down for the week then planning for the week ahead, clip coupons, and planning to watch the Cleveland Browns/Bengals game later, Ultimate rivals!  Lol! 

How is your Sunday going?

You say you have manners, but people with manners do not call other people cheap just because their customs differ.

I do have manners. I didn't know that "cheap" is such a harsh word for you. I guess if the shoe fits.

I think etiquette books are cheap, they are a disguise for real life and real people.  But good for you, Do you decorate your home like the pages from those books look like too?

Exactly morty.  If manners need to be read and studied I misewell throw in the towel!  Sounds like a poor upringing to me.

Yep. That should be coming from your parents and this just sounds like someone who is cheap and has cheap friends.

<p>You seriously find dinner manners from etiquette book, bord?  Please do share more...  What exactly do they say?  TIA. </p>

What an odd request.  If you wish to know what etiquette books say, the easiest and best way to find out is to read them.  They can be found in bookstores, at the library, and online.

As far as I know, etiquette books do not have pages about home decor; although a few do suggest amenities for guest bedrooms and bathrooms that one might not necessarily think to provide.

No, if you want to know how things are done in circles different from your own, an etiquette book might help you.  If you don't have that kind of curiousity and are content to just be nasty and judgemental about customs other than your own, an etiquette book will be of no use.

Do you only have ONE type of circle? IME people have different types of circles of friends who are all different.

Then your company knows you get your ideas from etiquette books too, Bord?  Or do you take all the credit? 

You like debating this as much as I do, Lol.  :-)
