THAT'S SO ANNOYING
An Etiquette Expert on the World's Most Irritating Habits and
What to Do About Them
By Cynthia W. Lett
We all face impossibly annoying people and tasks every day. Husbands leave their dirty dishes in the sink overnight, unruly children run around stores with no parental supervision, and coworkers read e-mails over your shoulder. You can deal with them calmly, muffle your screams with a pillow, or read That's So Annoying: An Etiquette Expert on the World's Most Irritating Habits and What to Do About Them and better deal with these all too common irritants. Here, etiquette expert Cynthia W. Lett covers nuisances plaguing us at home, in the office, at restaurants, and everywhere else. In each chapter, she uses a scale ranging from "bothering a select few" to "awfully annoying to everyone" for offenses including:
• Nail clipping in public places
• Wife hiding the remote
• Noisy kids in restaurants
• A snoring spouse
• Poor e-mail etiquette
• Store clerks on cell phones
• Loud speakerphone conversations
• Superficial air kissing
That's So Annoying is the first book to outline the most common pet peeves in homes and offices and tells you exactly what you can and should do about them. Included in each chapter are complaints written by individuals or groups, such as diners or employees. They read like conversations you would have with your friends, about the teen whose pants are too low or the old man who spits on the sidewalk. You can read this book alone or with friends. With Cynthia W. Lett's advice, you'll know bad etiquette when you see it—and how to respond with class and compassion.
