Do You Know How to Behave? Are You Sure?

Journalists telling people what they should and shouldn’t do, and how — such lists are usually terrible. Terribly patronising and cringeworthy. These 140 «Etiquette rules» are refreshingly good. A few stupid ones, a few to make everyone angry, yes, but most are genuinely helpful («If someone starts telling you a story you’ve heard before, you have two seconds to tell them.», «Gift randomly», «Never ask anyone what their job is.»).
