Watch What You Put in Your Mouth

Of course, you won't smoke in close proximity to others without their permission. People who drink too much are equally obnoxious. In business or social situations, neither smoking nor excessive drinking is acceptable behavior.

If the event involves eating, use your best manners. At a stand-up networking meeting, choose foods that are easy to eat: grapes, crackers, bits of cheese. Steer clear of the chewy, dripping, garlic-laced, hard-to-eat items at the hors d'oeuvres table.
