Manners of Fact


Lose the gum!

I spotted this brilliant innovation at Upper Crust in Oklahoma City, a local restaurant in Classen Curve. What a great reminder for people that chew gum to lose it before they say another word! Without these little cards, guests would be choosing between retiring to the powder room, swallowing their gum, rolling gum in a paper napkin, or re-living elementary school by sticking it under the table or their chair.

Cheers to Upper Crust for such a fun reminder of good manners. I’d love to see these included in programs at weddings and funerals; a gentle, direct reminder of the manners required for those kind of occasions.
