As Modern Manners Guy, it’s my job to be keenly observant of people and situations around me. I often bring the people I meet (the wacky, the rude, and the hilarious) into my writing as examples of what not to do..


With all the oddballs that I meet who make me want to bang my head against a wall repeatedly, it’s always a breath of fresh air when I come across someone who shares the same quirky outlook into etiquette as I – and many of you – do.

That's why today, I’m thrilled to welcome fellow etiquette guru, Amy Alkon (otherwise known as the Advice Goddess), to the Modern Manners Guy show. Her new book, Good Manners for Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck  comes out June 3 and it's a hilarious take on manners conundrums we all face.

In my exclusive interview with Amy, we’ll discuss many topics from her book, including:

  • The story behind the bold title, Good Manners for Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck.  

  • Which etiquette snafus frustrate us the most?

  • Where do people tend to lose their manners most often? At restaurants? At work? At family gatherings? At the DMV?  

  • When you're dining out with someone, what's the ultimate etiquette deal breaker?

  • What is the biggest misconception people have about modern day manners? 

And much, much more!
