The Classy Thing To Do…

by Sierra Silverspoon

Never tell someone something said about him/her that was unflattering, degrading, or maligning, and put it under the banner of friendship or truth-telling. A bad report should never be reported.  After an arranged blind date didn’t work for a cousin,  her “best” friend informed her that the guy said she was “too overweight.”

  • Only speak your opinion when asked to do so.
  • Be a secret keeper.
  • Substitute the word Thanks for Thank You.
  • Keep your word regardless of how difficult it may be.
  • Switch out the words, “I apologize” for “I’m sorry.” The words, “I’m sorry” are more heartfelt.  
  • If someone speaks to you by name, and you don’t remember them, don’t pretend. Say so. “Sorry, I forgot your name” and look them dead in the eye to indicate a genuine interest in knowing who they are.
  • Don’t name-drop unless your father is the police chief, and you just got stopped for speeding.
  • If you are a doctor on a social scene, never introduce yourself as such. “I’m Dr. So & So” is only appropriate if your occupation is relevant to the setting such as clinical.
  • Pass on the opportunity to repeat gossip of any kind where it involves an enemy.
