It has been quite a while since we have glanced back for a Finishing School Review. Before we proceed any further, it is time to look back at autumn and winter.
In October we had Tips on Punctuality. Remember that it is important to show courtesy in being on time, not too late and not too early!
We also looked at a video from Emily Post on proper table manners. When in doubt, watch the hostess!
In November, soup was on! Be sure to remember that the proper way to eat soup is to push the spoon away from you, never slurp, and do not blow on your soup.
Later in November, we had hot tea. Just as with soup, it is not polite to blow or slurp your tea.
1. Get their wish list.
2. Trust your judgment.
3. Stick to your budget.
4. Buy it when you see it.
5. Start a gift closet.
Later in December was the importance of a mending kit. Sooner or later, you will be grateful for it!
Here are the basics:
1. Don't forget to give your name.
2. Be careful of the tone of your voice.
3. Focus on your call.
4. Speak clearly and not too fast.
5. Have respect.
