Nowadays it seems the old rules of etiquette are changing faster than we can keep up with them. Technology that accelerates communication; alternative lifestyles and family arrangements; tele-commuting and other unconventional career situations all conspire to render many of the rules of generations past obsolete. Amidst such changes many of us are at a loss for how to behave with good manners and grace.
