Let’s be truthful! We are guilty of doing these things in public sometimes though it screams lack of manners! Below are some things we should not do in public.
‘Scratch and win’ is a promo phrase; do not scratch your backside for any reason.
‘Digging deep’ is a church phrase; do not pick your nose in public.
Tilting your head to one side and wipe sweat off. Get a hanky!
Stir your tea noiselessly. You are not the percussion member of a music group.
Drink without noise. It is ridiculous to sound like a bath tub emptying itself.
Sneeze into a hanky. Blow your nose into a hanky. Do not, I repeat, do not check what came out of your nose!
Chew your food with class. What you are eating is to be seen, not heard.
Chew gum with finesse. You are not in a competition with a typewriter.
If you don’t know how to use fork and knife, please do not try it! It is would be very ridiculous to look like a bird in flight. Besides your under arms may not be at their best.
I hope with these few points of mine I have been able to convince (and not confuse) you… sorry we are not in a debate. Loooool anyway, hope you got the gist? Having good manners in public is the best.
