thank you for the answer i really appreciate that.what about to salute a lady. usually what i know is that always you should get up to salute a lady but the opposite will occur. a lady won't stand for a man. or she won't stand for a woman who is younger than her or less classified than her. also i would like you to explain this fact to me. thank you
Hi, My name is XXXXX XXXXX X am your Etiquette Expert.Regardless of whether a man or woman rising to greet someone is a time-honored display of good etiquette and respect. Older rules such as men rising while men remain seated are much less evident today. Today is appropriate for a woman to stand to greet a man or another woman and this is certainly the norm in a business situation.Standing when greeting someone puts everyone on the same level. Hosts and hostesses should always stand to greet arriving guests at social events, but once the party is underway then it isn't necessary to stand every time someone enters the room.Thanks again for the great question. I believe this is a follow on question to your first question so there is no need to click accept again on this question as you have already accepted the answer.
