Business Etiquette - Or Just Basic Training?
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Attention! There is some big news coming out of Colorado Springs. In order to graduate from the Air Force Academy, cadets will have to pass inspection in decorum. Yes, you read that right. The "Social Decorum Training Program at the U.S. Air Force Academy" is soon to be a required course. I think it should be called "Political Correctness." It's so obvious. But nobody asked me. Again. According to the federal government's website, the course, still under construction, will include social decorum training in military, business, communication, dining and social/professional etiquette. The class will even include event planning and invitation development and how to make introductions and even posture! My fourth-grade teacher, wherever she is, is thrilled. Below is a snapshot from the federal government's site: SCOPE. Topics of instruction shall include but are not limited to: Social activities, event planning, personal correspondence (invitations, RSVPs, thank you notes), writ ...

Why I'm Sick Of Chronically Tardy People
Huffington Post - over 3 years
When I meet a particular acquaintance for lunch in a restaurant, I always tell her the reservation is for 30 minutes earlier than it really is. Why? Because she is never on time and I don't want to sit alone at a table stewing for half an hour. For years, I have watched as AYSO soccer coaches call a practice for noon and have players saunter in at 12:30 p.m., their moms strolling in behind them carrying a fresh cup of Starbuck's -- lest anyone be uncertain about why they were late. We have parents in our old elementary school who used to bring their kids to school 10 minutes late each day just to miss the long drop-off line. What the kids were also missing was the first 10 minutes of classroom instruction, not to mention the fact that they disrupted the class mid-lesson when they walked in. But did these always-late parents care? No, not really. "I don't like waiting in lines," one mother said matter-of-factly and by way of explanation. "This way I can pull right up to the front of t ...

Teacher Wants To 'Climb The Social Ladder' Using Philanthropy
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
This teacher is looking to ensure she forevermore toasts to the good life -- hopefully with vintage champagne looking out a penthouse window, if you please. In her query to the etiquette columnist Judith Martin, better known as "Miss Manners," a preschool teacher described her desire to switch careers from educator to skin care specialist. She wrote in to the column, which is syndicated to news outlets nationwide, that she wanted to meet the "right" people and hopefully get married while she's at it. Her main tactic for achieving this involves volunteering. "I do not want or need fame, power or prestige, but I would definitely not complain about living in a Fifth Avenue penthouse with a loving husband, beautiful children and an exciting career. Joining the Junior League seems to be a great idea; I also volunteer at galas, and will be volunteering at a city hospital soon." Alas, we initially thought this was written as an April Fool's post, but she opened up her lette ...

Fans Pay Tribute To Dear Abby
Huffington Post - about 4 years
NEW YORK — Two men had recently bought a house together in San Francisco, and the neighbors were annoyed. The men were entertaining "a very suspicious mixture of people," the neighbors wrote, asking: "How can we improve the neighborhood?" "You could move," Dear Abby replied. That zinger, contained in the 1981 collection "The Best of Dear Abby," was such classic Abby – real name, Pauline Friedman Phillips – that it moved her daughter to burst into laughter Thursday when reminded of it, even though she had just returned from the funeral of her mother. The elder Phillips had died a day earlier at age 94 after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease. "People weren't really talking about homosexuality back then," Jeanne Phillips, who now writes the famous syndicated column, said. "But you know, there wasn't a subject my mother wouldn't take on." As the world said goodbye to Dear Abby on Thursday, the Web was full of her snappiest one-liners, responses to thousands ...

Comment on Dr. Oz Today: Do You Have The Right To End Your Own Life? 3/15/2012 by Judith Martin
Current Movie News - almost 5 years
I just watched the End of Life episode on Dr. Oz. Almost two years ago my dear husband of 46 years was dying from liver and kidney cancer. There was an extreme amount of pain involved. He asked me to call Compassion and Friends for him. We had agreed years ago that if one of us asked the other we would comply. It was the hardest thing I had ever done. The people I talked to were just that..Compassionate and easy to talk with. We had two wonderful doctors who agreed to help us. There was only one thing wrong. My husband couldn’t swallow well enough to be able to take the medicine. We called in Hospice and they were absolute angels in their attentive 24-hour care. I was able to keep him at home as he wished. Our daughters and I along with Hospice help eased him through the last stages and kept his pain at bay. But I still wish we had been able to give him his last wishes. Dr. Oz, you are right that we must have these “tough discussions” now for all our sakes. And yes, we shoul ...
