With just 100 days to go until the London 2012 Olympics, overseas visitors to London might be starting to worry about how to behave in a country “so consciously governed by manners and etiquette”. Then again… they might not, but that didn’t stop International Business Times UK giving the issue airtime.
So, here are those four supposedly important etiquette tips:
1. Don’t talk about money
2. Say “sorry”
3. Don’t stick your ‘pinky’ (little finger) out when you’re drinking tea
4. Give two kisses on meeting someone (but none at all if you’re meeting them for the first time)
Incidentally, if you’re interested in English etiquette, have a read also of last year’s blog post, “A lesson in English etiquette“.
