Etiquette is a code of behavior for people from all walks of life, every socioeconomic group, and of all ages. Good manners are a valuable asset and cost nothing to acquire. CURRENT . . not a thing of the past. The bedrock principles of etiquette remain as solid as they ever were. Manners change over time and across cultural boundaries, but the principles are universal and timeless. UNPRETENTIOUS . . not snobbish. A polite person doesn’t try to be someone he’s not, nor does he look down on others.

Etiquette isn’t a set of “prescriptions for properness” but merely the guidelines for doing things in ways that make people feel comfortable. FOR EVERYONE . . not something for the wealthy or wellborn. Etiquette is a code of behavior for people from all walks of life, every socioeconomic group, and of all ages.

Good morning,” “good afternoon,” and “good evening” are a little more formal, but also commonly used. Saying “hello” doesn’t obligate you to stop and chat, so don’t hesitate to greet someone just because you’re in a rush. If the person wants to talk, briefly explain your hurry and part graciously. It’s only right to be courteous to people in general, so also don’t forget to greet the people who serve you, such as cashiers and receptionists. When someone’s too far away to hear or when it would disturb others, a spoken greeting may not be possible.
