Monday night I had the pleasure of being a guest speaker for 90ish men from the Delta Tau Delta Fraternity.
The topic? Dining.
Some may think that to properly learn dining etiquette, one should only practice with the finest china and polished silver. Not me. I am happy to teach to anyone interested in learning . . .
even when the bread is served in this. . .
the flatware is this…
and the place setting is this.
I’d be willing to bet my etiquette certificate on the fact that when it comes time for the men to use the dining skills they learned, they won’t care what they learned with. Just that they learned.
And who says that just because a bowl says “popcorn” doesn’t mean it can’t be used for bread, no?
Isn’t it fantastic that these young men care enough about their personal brands to host an etiquette dinner and find the resources necessary to learn.
For those that say today’s young adults don’t care, I encourage you to join me on on the road. You’ll sleep much better at night. I promise!
