My mother said there are always three hallmarks to a true “lady”
- She always carries a handkerchief.
- She never smokes on the street.
- She would never use a swear word ("Even if her hair was on fire.")
As you can imagine, I have been fond of handkerchiefs ever since.

Question: My mother thought a handkerchief was one of the ultimate “ladylike” hallmarks; what other ladylike behaviors did your mother teach you?
Example: “Ladies always cross their feet at the ankle”...“Ladies never order a drink in public”... “A lady is always the first to say thank you.”Note: I’m not asking or suggesting anyone follow these maxims, I just think they make for *interesting* discussion!
