Trisha Goddard on Five – Etiquette – Ladettes to LadiesBy Angela Marshall, 17th Apr 2009
The other morning I turned on the television, whilst changing to go out, and Trisha Goddard on Five programme was on. This is not something I would normally watch, however it was about etiquette and they had on some women who they were going to change from ladettes to ladies, so I thought I should watch it. I was amazed, in fact shocked, to hear that a few of the women go to Asda in their pyjamas because they are too lazy to change; one in her dressing gown with nothing else on. Three were sent off with some experts and were taught how to have better posture, speak more politely and how to use a cup and saucer. It had not struck me before that people use mugs all the time. The comments the women said after the session included how much more confident they felt and how much greater self-esteem they had.
The next day I had a business meeting in City Inn Hotel, Westminster and all the people were having cups of coffee and tea in cups and saucers.
