Blowing One’s Nose – The New Etiquette By Irene Felicia Weathersby

Blowing one’s nose is always an awkward task, but one that cannot—at least in polite com­pany—be neglected.

The only method is to be as unobtrusive as possible.

When dining with others, if pos­sible, excuse yourself and leave the table if you must blow your nose;otherwise, turn your head away from the other guests.

Al­ways use a tissue or handker­chief, never the table napkin.

Irene Felicia Weathersby Socially yours, Ms. Irene Felicia
