          Your Etiquette Questions Answered

          July 25, 2003

          The rules of etiquette often go ignored in today’s society, but there are certain rules that just can’t be ignored. For instance, what falls in and outside the boundaries of proper table manners? What’s considered an appropriate tip for a waitress? And, is it socially acceptable to “re-gift”?
           
          Dr. Phil tackles these questions and more with the help of “The Queen of Etiquette,” Peggy Post. Together they offer advice on a wide range of etiquette dilemmas.
