Handling Others Rudeness
You can’t control someone else’s behavior. So focus on maintaining your own standard of good behavior instead. Here are some tips to help:
- Don’t take it personally. Perhaps the offender is having a bad day.
- Size up your annoyances. Is it worth it to make a fuss over something small, or is it a waste of your emotional time?
- Set a good example. Rudeness begets rudeness. If you speak sharply to the bank teller, don’t be surprised if you get the same treatment in return.
- Count to ten. When someone’s behavior makes you angry, take a few deep breaths and ask yourself, “Is it really worth blowing a fuse over this?”
- Laugh it off. If you can’t come up with a friendly joke, just chuckle and change the subject.

Modest Clothing tips
- Let the clothing be a testament of your dignity as a woman. What you choose to wear can affect your behavior and the perception of others.
- Be careful about dressing “grungy” even if it is modest. It can be perceived as a lack of self-confidence.
- Attend to the current trends in clothing, but don’t allow yourself to become enslaved by them. Fashion-forward dressers usually select one or two items from each season to coordinate with their existing wardrobe.
- Layers can cover areas that you don't want to draw attention to wearing a long camisole under your shirt can cover the bust area as well as add a layer for mid area
- Scarves can modify tops for trendy yet modest looks
- Long vests/jacket or cute pants under a short dress can also add to your modest yet trendy look
- Know your body type and what works well with you
- Wear the correct undergarments
- When it's all said and done, your attire and attitude should glorify God!
Business Attire Tips
- A two piece matched pants or skirt suit is the most appropriate attire for a formal business interview: Color should be black, brown, navy or dark gray.
- Skirts should not be above the knee
- Blouse/Sweater – wear a tailored blouse under the suit which co-ordinates nicely. An alternative to a blouse is a good quality knit. Either way it is very important not to show any cleavage and it should not be sheer or revealing.
- Any jewelry or accessories should be simple and conservative
- Shoes should be closed-toe pumps/court shoes and in solid dark blue or black leather to match your suit. The heels should be of a conservative height and should be well polished.
- If you carry a briefcase then keep your handbag small and neat; avoid anything that looks like a beach tote or partyish. Leather is the best option for both but fine woven or fiber is acceptable. An alternative to a briefcase is a leather portfolio.
- Regardless of your budget, everything must be clean, well pressed and should fit well. This is by far the most important aspect of your outfit. A new expensive designer suit is not necessary!
1. Please – This is one of those words that can show good manners or come across as sarcastic, based on your tone. Any time you ask for something, it's always a good idea to add this word to soften the request.
2. You're welcome – When someone says, "Thank you," your instant response should be, "You're welcome," "You're certainly welcome," or some variation that feels comfortable to you. Another way to express the same thought is, "I was happy to do it," or, "My pleasure.
3. Thank you – When someone does something nice for you or gives you a gift, you should always say, "Thank you." Not doing so gives the impression that you feel entitled to whatever it is, and that can leave a sour taste in a mannerly person's mouth.

When someone shows you a picture on their phone, look at it and return the phone. Don't swipe to the previous/next one. It might be personal.

Send A Thank You Note
Being thankful will never go out of style. When someone does something for you, or sends you a gift, thank the person with a handwritten note. It’s the least you can do for a person who has taken the time to think of you.
