Social etiquette for idiots like me

If you’re anything like me, COVID wasn’t kind to your social skills. For example, before the pandemi-lovato, I said things like “please”, “thank you”, and “Sorry for existing, can I get a burrito with white rice?” Now, I mute myself to burp, stage-4 manspread – and eat spaghetti with my hands!

Because masks are today’s trash, yesterday’s treasure – and that extra 70% of face can be used to judge identify me – I crafted this handy lil quiz to help us recalibrate for a post-COVID world. You know, one with hugs!

Rest assured, SALLY SKEPTIC, this bad boy has been loosely adapted lol, so loose from the Etiquette School of America – so you can be absolutely certain that you’re getting tips from the experts – and not some slime ball with a platform!

Keep track of your correct answers – and NO peeking. That’s, like, so rude.

Christian: D. If you want grandbabies more than I do, you can pitch in around here.

Christian: D. This is truly the only way to get to know someone without five years of coffee dates.

The experts: B. Standing in front of the buttons means you’ve been insta-promoted to systems engineer. It’s your duty to take everyone’s number and select the icebreaker.

Christian: C. 1 in every 50 people is That’s So Raven. Your odds are pretty good.

The experts: C. They didn’t pay $50 a plate for you not to hold a sparkler.

Christian: A. Saying this from experience: Sending people off all night cuts into your Cha Cha Slide Pt 2-time. An Irish goodbye should be a gift on the registry.

That’s it! Now, let’s sort you into social classes!
