To Nix Uncomely Mannerisms


"It's generally little things that spoil the picture..."
Janet Lane

As a firm rule, a lady never does any of the following in the company of others:

  • examine, pick, or bite fingernails
  • crack knuckles
  • scratch head
  • touch nose without a handkerchief or tissue
  • bite lips or inside cheek
  • play with hair
  • tap or click fingernails
  • play with jewelry
  • pick teeth
 Principle:  A lady never exhibits unsightly mannerisms.

  2. Yes, cracking knuckles is a big one for me. I've had that habit since I was a girl - I'm not sure why but I'm trying to break the habit. Thank you for the reminder. :)
