Speak to the Lady FIRST!!

Recently, I posted a comment on my Facebook page and I wasn’t expecting the response it was given.

Shortly after being introduced to the public speaking scene, I noticed something I never really paid attention to before. It led me to share this post, “Ladies, when speaking to men and we see his wife sitting or standing beside him, make sure we acknowledge HER first. It’s called respect.”  The response to the post was unexpected.

I expected some women to respond but to see the comments from the men is what made my eyebrow raise.Maybe the man should make it clear and plain too by introducing his wife (woman) too” one man posted. Another posted, “Yes indeed or catch the wrath. And vice versa may I add.” One man disagreed with everyone and said, Not necessarily…you are supposed to acknowledge the person you know first, and then that person is supposed to introduce you to the person next to him.

Once upon a time, I never really gave it any thought…until it happened to me. THAT made me realize that I better start acknowledging the wife/woman BEFORE turning and talking to the man. I now know it’s called COMMON COURTESY.
