Guidance for some excruciatingly obvious etiquette dilemmas ("Should I let my child be hit by another child at daycare?" "Should I send a prompt thank you note to people who sent me wedding gifts?") However, there is a tendency to accommodate the way things are done "these days" -- as if there weren't clueless and selfish people in the old days. Some of my faves: it's quite all right to wear bright colours to a funeral -- presumably, when you want to make that "hooray, he's dead" impression. By all means, women can wear black, or even white to a wedding "unless the dress looks like you're competing with the bride." Now why would you wear white to someone else's wedding, UNLESS if you want to compete with the bride? There is also a tendency to refer to older customs as "myths", and newer customs, if you want to call them that, "new attitudes." That low, clear sound you hear is Miss Emily Post turning in her grave.
