Basic Rules Everyone Should Follow

Rule #1

Before the meal, make sure to shake hands with everyone already sitting at the table.

Rule #2

Order foods that are easy to eat, such as a salad or chicken, so you don't make a mess.

Rule #3

If you need to leave the table during the meal, place your napkin on your chair and push the chair back under the table.

Rule #4

Keep your elbows off the table and don't talk with your mouth full.
