Every time I attend a business lunch meeting, opportunities abound to observe some of the bad meal etiquette habits we have. People pick their teeth, use their napkin as a kleenex and gobble with their mouth open. Yuck.
Miss Management of Inc magazine recently discussed this in her Q&A column. You can read the Toothpick Talk by clicking here.
Like it or not, people do judge us by what they see — particularly on first impressions. A business deal can be made (or missed) because of a first impression. Is it right? Nope. But it happens anyway.
My question for you is — would you do business with a person who had horrendous manners at the table? Why or why not? Leave me a comment below.
