Good manners are highly valued in London. It's inexcusable to forget to say simple things like "hello", "how are you", "goodbye", "please" and "thank you". If you are invited to somebody's home for dinner or to spend a weekend at somebody's country house, you should always remember to send a thank you card, otherwise you will not be invited any more. Also send a thank you note by post to everyone you have receive a gift from. And never call anyone late at night - it's inappropriate.Share it:
