Courtesy is something that some people just donâ€™t get. Some simply do not care, while some are just not aware. If you are going to a cigar lounge to enjoy a smoke, you should know the basic etiquette that is expected of you. How well do you know your cigar lounge etiquette? Ask yourself these questions and find out!
If a conversation is going on when you enter the lounge, what do you do?
Some people would probably sit down and observe for a while, maybe join in when they feel like it. Others might immediately jump into the fray and make an unrelated remark about some other topic he is interested in. Obviously, the first one is acceptable, the second one rude.
Do you compare your cigar to other peopleâ€™s cigar?
There is nothing wrong in comparing right? True; that is, unless you keep insisting that yours is better. Think about it though, what cigar you smoke is a matter of preference. Just because yours is â€œbetterâ€ does not mean that the other person would like your cigar as well.
If you see someone smoking a cigar the â€œwrongâ€ way, what do you do?
Would you plow right ahead and tell that person he is going it wrong or would you keep quiet? Again, keep your opinions to yourself. Some people like to smoke cigars a certain way. Who are you to tell them how to smoke THEIR cigar?
These are only some questions that can help you check your lounge etiquette. Letâ€™s look at some more next time.
