As a Lady Would Say Revised and Expanded: Responses to Life's Important (and Sometimes Awkward) Situations

Front Cover
Thomas Nelson, Jan 9, 2012 - Reference - 208 pages

Have you ever been in a situation in which you were caught off guard, left speechless, or, worse yet, put your foot in your mouth?

So much depends on being a lady. A true one knows that the question, “How are you today?” isn’t an invitation for her to unload the day’s ordeals. She knows that her unsolicited opinion of a friend’s fuzzy lime green sweater dress isn’t necessary, and she certainly knows better than to nag or spout gender clichés when the man in her life refuses to stop and ask for directions.

As a Lady Would Say is every woman’s guide to being delicate in an indelicate world of awkward situations, difficult people, and thorny social dynamics. Sheryl Shade’s clever cataloging of real-world scenarios is a humorous look at how a lady should respond in any number of life’s irksome situations, along with a guide to which words should never leave her mouth. Get ready to question your own feminine sensibilities, and examine the way you interact with the world around you.

Should be required reading in schools. The shortness and simplicity of each response/situation is a wonderful reminder that correct behavior is much easier to model than some would have us believe. Read full review
