The School of Flaunt

Back when "Flying Was Fun" Alexandra Smythe and Cate Clarke were Flight Attendants with a Major International Carrier. Prior to Private Jets coming into vogue, Alexandra and Cate traveled in the First Class World, meeting and greeting the top celebrities, politicians who would become Presidents, nouveau riche, and yes the occasional Headline Grabbing Criminal in Handcuffs!

What the two ladies viewed and experienced became fodder for the School of Flaunt, so much money, such bad taste and oh those terrible manners. Something had to be done! Hence, The School of Flaunt Handbook was born. Read More

Lovely Evening in the City?

Lovely evening in the City, NOT.

My wonderful husband, Mr. Clarke and I went out for some light supper, a small, but lovely French favorite.

We valeted the car and entered the dark paneled rooms and there they were: our best friends with several couples celebrating a birthday. We had wanted a quiet dinner, but we were asked to join them and now we had a huge group and we were immediately separated and sitting next to strangers, or almost strangers. Has this happened to you at a dinner party? The host or hostess plans the seating to stimulate conversation and now you are duty bound to converse with your dinner partner on the right and dinner partner on the left. It's mandatory, but a lot like watching a tennis match or Ping-Pong. Do not hang on one's left of right. Try to be conscious of your timing on either side.

Students of The School of Flaunt, we must always mind our manners and oblige the host, but in this case we were not on the original guest list and frankly unaware who was the host or hostess? We felt another pang of awkwardness when the bill came. It was huge due to the number of guests and wine served. Several hands went up to grab the tab, but finally the host appeared and he took care of it. When this happens, and you were an "uninvited guest", do send a thank you note in the next day's post. This will make the host and hostess happy and take you "off the hook", so to speak. Mr. Clarke was very uncomfortable with the situation. I told him he handled it "perfectly".

Next time we plan a small quiet dinner out, we will ask for a dark table accessible without walking through the entire restaurant. Thereby being surprised when "friends" walk by.

There is so much to learn in the way of good Manners and Flaunt! I do hope you are listening.
