The Civilized Minute

a minute of manners and musings

everybody wants to know

The next time you see your office mate running to a meeting with a Post-It note stuck to her elbow…

The next time you see your husband, who asked where did you get that big skirt? as you ring the doorbell of someone’s house for a dinner party, tell a story to the entire table with a piece of lettuce stuck to his chin…

I want you to remember this picture…

Everybody wants to know. Wouldn’t you want to know if you had a piece of straw stuck in the hair on your ear? Quietly help that person eliminate what would ultimately cause them over the top embarrassment. Think If it were me to help you know how to handle it.

This is Anna, by the way. She is going to be ticked when she sees this.

    Kate, your Civilized Minute is a must read for me. You always make me smile.
