Polite Society

Just so my followers know how to behave when in public, here’s more advice from the book of ‘Lore’ I’ve been reading. This is from 1701, but every bit as applicable today:

Put not thy hand in the presence of others to any part of thy body, not ordinarily discovered… Spit not in the Room, but in a corner, and rub it out with thy Foot, or rather go out and do it abroad.

Going abroad to spit seems rather extreme, but if needs must I’d probably suggest France – they seem to have a pretty relaxed approach to such things.

No Spitting Allowed especially with good wine LeDomduVin
