DO’S AND DON’TS OF THE GENTLEMAN

– A gentleman does not make idle threats.

– A gentleman does not brag.

– A gentleman does not whine.

-A gentleman knows how to use a dictionary.

-A gentleman accepts a compliment by saying, “Thank you. It’s nice of you to tell me that.” When a friend tells him, “That’s a good-looking tie. Jim”, a gentleman does not respond by saying “this old thing? I was almost ashamed to bring it out.” Such remarks imply that the person paying the compliment has questionable taste.

– Whenever possible, a gentleman stays away from sore subjects.
