Business Dining Etiquette: Don’t Do These Things

One thing we can all rally around as human beings is that—food is great. But at a work lunch, you want to be mindful of things beyond how much food you can get in your stomach without ejecting it back onto the plate. Diane Gottsman lists a few things not to do in this setting to maintain proper etiquette, some of which include the following:

  • Don’t order more food than the people with whom you are dining, especially if they are superiors.
  • Don’t leave the waiter wondering who is paying if you are the one who intends to pay. Be up front, or even pay in advance of other parties arriving by way of credit card if necessary.
  • Don’t use your knife’s reflection to check your teeth, and refrain from using a toothpick at the table. Likewise, don’t blow your nose into a napkin if there is any other solution under the sun.
  • Don’t get pretentious with wine selection.
  • Put the phone away!
