more on Miss Manners

I recently wrote about how I saw Miss Manners as a Buddhist, given her propensity for advising people to get past their egos. She has another great quality too: non-judgment. Miss Manners does not make value judgments on people’s lifestyles. She simply advises on the proper social protocol given the situation.

Someone recently asked her how to go about inviting people in a polyamorous relationship to a gathering. Miss Manners replies that “etiquette does not attempt to pinpoint what goes on in a household when company is not expected,” and then simply spells out the proper way to address the envelope containing the invitation.

I do love Miss Manners.
