Episode 472 - No Receiving Line Hero Label

Episode 472 - No Receiving Line

On today’s show, we take your questions on people who ask you to send their thanks along to someone else, not having a receiving line at the wedding, whether or not to invite a friend who is bothering the bride to a wedding, and how to handle a charity birthday present request for a kids’ birthday. For Awesome Etiquette Community Members, our question of the week is about a very generous, maybe too generous, host. Plus your most excellent feedback, etiquette salute, and a historical postscript on spitting from Margaret Visser’s The Rituals Of Dinner.
