The right hand is for waving and shaking hands (using the left hand is for sneezing or coughing into)
Your purse should be on the left shoulder, and on the floor to your right at dinner time

4. Check off what you know, regarding etiquette and manners:
The primary distinction between etiquette and manners is that the first includes specific rules of conduct, while the other is more generalized.
Manners involve general behavioral guidelines, such as treating the elderly with respect and courtesy.
Etiquette is a specific code of behavior, with an example of etiquette being knowledge of the proper mode of address for a queen, which is, incidentally, Your Majesty.
Many of the rules of etiquette are already practiced by people with good manners, and a demonstration of familiarity with good manners will mark someone as cultured, polite company.
People are typically taught manners from a very young age
Children learn, for example, that it is not polite to stare, to make personal comments (like telling a Jew that their head will explode by leaving the O out of G-d)
In childhood, people usually absorb lessons about how to treat others and how to behave in a variety of situations.
Manners often become second nature when they are taught at a young age.
