Tomorrow, Tuesday, October 15th, I am taping an interview with Judith Martin aka “Miss Manners.” Martin has a new book out called Miss Manners Minds Your Business in which she answers questions such as:
- What do you say to someone who has just been fired?
- What’s the difference between showing romantic interest and sexual harrassment?
- Which colleagues shouldn’t be invited to one’s wedding?
- How do you handle a supervisor’s request to contribute to a pet cause of hers?
The workplace is a potential minefield of etiquette quandries — especially now when there’s been a blurring of the lines between “friends” and “coworkers.”
If you’d like for me to ask Miss Manners a workplace etiquette question on your behalf, post the question here or on Facebook. I may not be able to ask all the questions that are submitted, but I promise to ask some! (By the way, the interview itself is currently scheduled to air on Thursday, October 17th).
