Also, most Englishmen will open a door for a woman or offer their seat to a woman, and so will most Americans. Promptness is important both in England and in America. That is, if a dinner invitation is for seven o'clock, the dinner guest either arrives close to that time or calls up to explain his delay. The important thing to remember about social customs is not to do anything that might make other people feel uncomfortable, especially if they are your guests. There is an old story about a man who gave a formal dinner party. When the food was served, one of the guests started to eat his peas with a knife. The other guests were amused or shocked, but the host calmly picked up his knife and began eating in the same way. It would have been bad manners to make his guest feel foolish or uncomfortable.
还有,大多数英国男士都会为女士开门、拉座椅,大部分美国男人,也是如此。准时,对美国和英国人来说也都很重要。如果,晚餐邀请定在7点,客人要么在将近7点到达,要么会打电话解释迟到了。 关于社会风俗,最重要的一点就是要记住:别做任何会让别人感觉不舒服的事情———尤其当对方是你的客人时。当食品上桌的时候,如果有一个客人开始用餐刀吃豌豆,其他客人会觉得好玩或者震惊。但是如果主人习以为常采用同样的方式,用刀吃豌豆,这种不良的行为方式,就会让他的客人觉得被愚弄了,或者感觉很不舒服。
