Don't be a clod

Manners, people! Anita Bruzzese, Gannett, reminds us that manners count at work.

The example she opened with was of a person who worked through lunch and then scarfed pork rinds, rattling the package.

I can think of worse offenses--such as breaking wind or loud phone conversations filled with profanity.

Little things can hurt your career--that seems to be the message. So don't interrupt people, do not text while talking to someone, don't cut people off in a conversation jsut because you are used to short communications.

Don't be too loud!

My sister talked about a woman at her former job who talked all day about her two full-size poodles. This drove people nuts!
