Dr. Shmendy's School of Etiquette

Over Shabbos, Miryam and I decided that there are a few people we know desperate for...
Dr. Shmendy's School of Etiquette!

Meet Dr. Shmendy. Although Shmendy goes to an all boys college, he knows how to treat a woman. Does he say "thank you," "please," and hold doors? Oh yes, he does. But even more than that, he knows how to compliment.

"Shmendy, would you like some soup?"
"Yum, yum, is that vegetable?"
"Why yes, it is!"
"Vegetable is just my favorite soup of all time! How gracious of you to make some."

After eating properly (making scoops away from himself) with his soup spoon (located to the right of his bowl--the bigger one):

"My, what wonderful soup! Thank you."

Now, allow me to ask how simple that was. How simple was that? He didn't fib. He didn't have to make gross exaggerations. Just a light, "My, what wonderful soup! Thank you," worked beautifully.

Wondering what could go wrong if this simple formula for making a woman who goes out of her way to do something nice to you isn't followed? Just look to Millard Fillmore, our 13th president. He was a respected man; but after all he said was, "the nourishment is palatable," of his wife's soup, he died a mysterious death. Let this be a lesson to you!

As do I! But I think we should ask Shmends first if this is okay with him...
