Proper etiquette is important now more than ever


An etiquette definition includes the customary code of polite behavior in society or among members of a particular profession or group. It also covers different situations inside each society or group.


In the 21st century, this now includes email, phone, text and office etiquette. Other areas where etiquette has always been important are weddings, including wedding invitation etiquette, table etiquette and even funeral etiquette.


Questions of etiquette in these and hundreds of other situations can be difficult to answer because of the multitude of possibilities, which is why most people rely on experts such as those at JustAnswer, who are available at any time of day from the comfort of your home. You can even ask follow-up questions, and approve payment only when you're completely satisfied.

At JustAnswer, etiquette Experts answer hundreds of questions every week. JustAnswer customers ask questions such as:


  • How should I respond when someone constantly invites themselves to events that have been planned without them?
  • What length and color of dress is appropriate for mothers of the bride and groom in different wedding settings?
  • What are the rules for tipping when I'm being served at a counter instead of a table?
  • Is it proper for someone to answer their cell phone and engage in conversation in front of other people?
  • Should I say “Hi,” “Dear First Name,” or “Dear Mr. Last Name” in a business email?
  • Is it OK to ignore grammar and punctuation in text messages?
  • Can e-mail replace meetings and other face-to-face communication?

Experts on JustAnswer also provide templates for written communication in both business and social situations.


If you need to discuss an issue with an Expert on JustAnswer, you'll want to have all the circumstances of the situation clear in your mind. It might help to write them down to make sure the Expert will understand the question.


Keep in mind that when it comes to etiquette, the correct answer is not always the answer you want to hear, but it will be the answer that makes sense in current society.
