Etiquette today

Etiquette: conventional forms and usages: the rules of etiquette, decorum suggests dignity and a sense of what is becoming or appropriate for a person of good breeding: a fine sense of decorum. The rules indicating the proper and polite way to behave.

What does etiquette mean to us today? With all the social media, Facebook, blogs, texting, tweeting, etc., etc., are we concerned about conventional formalities? When you are invited to a party, a dinner, a wedding, a baby shower, do you know what is expected of you? Do you dress appropriately for the event? Do you dress appropriately for work (or school)? Do you believe there is an appropriate way to dress or should you just dress as the mood strikes you for any occasion? Are you comfortable with the way other people behave at parties, events, work? Do you ever feel “out off place” yourself? Are all the rules of behavior, “etiquette,” out of date? What do you think?
