News, but not the serious kind
Wow, for such a trashy chick you sure are classy!
True or false?
1) It’s fine to stub your cigarette out on a used dinner plate
2) The back of a taxi is a great place for a one-night stand
3) If you want to go topless, just whip off your bikini and set an example
If you answered false to all of these, you may be more refined than you thought. Debrett’s, the bible of blue-blooded behavior in Britain, is now supplying etiquette advice in these areas, with a new book offering guidance on adultery, toplessness, smoking and other stuff that otherwise classy women might be confused about.
“We’re pulling Debrett’s out of Victorian times and trying to make it relevant to today,” the book’s editor told Reuters. The advice ranges from how to conduct a sleaze-free office fling or a disease-free one night stand, to how to smoke at social occasions. Kate Kelland reports:
And don’t stub it out in a wine bottle, either! Model and socialite Tara Palmer-Tomkinson poses for photographers as she pretends to stub out a giant cigarette to promote national ‘No Smoking Day’, in a 2000 file photo.
