6 Etiquette Rules People Break Without Even Realizing It

Posted on

5. Stirring sugar clockwise

You are concentrating so hard on not hitting the walls of the cup that you don’t even know you are making a mistake. You shouldn’t make circles with your spoon; you should go back and forth with it. This will dissolve the sugar faster and make the process much quieter.

6. Congratulating a bride on her marriage

It’s unexpected, but according to etiquette rules, only a man can be congratulated on marriage. You can only wish happiness to a woman — nothing more. The reason is very romantic: a man “conquered” a woman and married her, so he is the only one who deserves to be congratulated.
