Courtesy!

Here’s the next installment of manners and etiquette (courtesy of the Goops)?

Courtesy
I wonder why it is polite
In shaking hands, to give your right.
I wonder why it is refined
In passing one, to go behind.
I wonder why it is well-bred,
If you must sneeze, to turn your head.
Perhaps the reason is because
The Goops, they never have such laws!
