Today's Etiquette Lesson

Do you ever have to attend one of those fancy dinners with ridiculously complex place settings? Are you always confused about whose bread plate is whose and which water glass is yours? I used to be. But then someone taught me a great way to remember how it all works.

Just ask yourself two simple questions:

1. Who eats ritzy dinners like this every day? Rich people.

2. What do rich people drive? BMWs.

And that's all you have to remember! BMW = Bread, Meal, Water. BMW is the order in which your bread plate, meal plate and water glass are located in front of you as you sit at the table.

Easy-peasy pumpkin-squeezy!
