Leave it to the Kids!
It takes the children to keep up with the times. What is probably the first code of etiquette expressly compiled for cafeteria patrons appeared in a recent issue of a school paper:
- Don’t push in the lunch line.
- Take up as little space at the table as possible.
- Talk quietly.
- Use your handkerchief if you have to cough or sneeze.
- Eat slowly.
