Now I am going to stick my neck out and ask for your advice. In my conversation with Frances, Amy, and Brad I discovered that they have opinions too about young people rising when their elders enter the room. Frances says the guys generally will for the girls her age, but not especially for their parents. She finds this to be inconsistent.
So I'm asking for you all to tell me what the ten rules of living room etiquette are before I post them. I'll post anything you comment to me as long as it's a good practical idea that anybody can understand. There are two scenarios that I wish for you to consider: 1.The room is seated full of young people and you are older than most of them. You are bringing your friends with you hoping to find a place to sit and visit. 2. You are a girl or an older person coming into a room where there are plenty of places to sit for you and your friends who are with you. Is there anything they ( those already seated) should do? I'm asking. This is not a catch question.
