Does Etiquette Exist Anymore?

I hope that each of you have received your preliminary Crowned Prince and Princess Charm information. If you have not, please contact me to be added to our mailing list.  I look forward to meeting all of our new contestants this year and reconnecting with others. This is the first time that we have decided to take Crowned Prince and Princess Charm Pageants on the road so to speak.  I am looking forward to the several stops along our journey. Throughout the year, I will be blogging about life, both in the pageant world and outside of it. Today, I am going to talk about etiquette and the fact that it is completely unknown in today’s society.

 

What happened to common courtesy?  Is it really necessary to text or talk on the phone while in a movie?

I think that Emily Post would be mortified if she was alive today. I was in a movie theatre in a location that I will not disclose in an effort to both protect the innocent and the guilty. I was trying to enjoy the movie that I was seeing, but was met with obstacles along the way.

I certainly do not hope that you have had to experience this, but I sure did. There was a gentleman a few seats from me sitting closest to the wall TALKING ON HIS PHONE! That is right, talking on his phone—why do I have to be subjected to his seemingly pointless conversation while I have paid to go see a movie? Not only that, but a young Tween was sitting in front of me texting and even proceeded to watch a YouTube clip while the movie was playing. The parent that was sitting by her did not bother or feel the need to say anything either. This was even more interesting.

 

When I grew up, I did not do such things and would not even think to do something like that. What is  wrong with people? Is it now impossible to go see a movie? Can we not unplug from the technological world for just for a few hours? For common courtesy, I think one should at least while others have paid to see a movie. There is a need for both etiquette and netiquette in today’s society. Have any of you experienced anything like this? Share your thoughts.

The registration form is available on this site. We hope to see you there!

Start of Summer- County Fair Pageants Abound!

The start of summer signifies the beginning of the county fair pageant season. I always loved going to the fair and partaking in the excellent “fair food” as I like to call it. Funnel cakes, elephant ears and of course the hamburgers, hot dogs and soft drinks.

I enjoy watching my husband show his Tennessee Walking Horses and of course, the pageants–the epitome of Southern tradition. I wish all those competing this summer in the county fair systems, National American Miss , and American Coed systems and many more the best pageant wishes!

The second component of my business, Distinct Impressions Pageant and Image Consulting offers one on one consultation for those that need some additional practice in the areas of interview, stage presence, color psychology and many more! We also work with people on resume building and how to make you stand out for the right reasons. If you have been competing for one or 20 years, it never hurts to have a third party’s input.

Question to Ponder? What do you enjoy about the fair?
