This week on a very orderly Eating Disorder, the guys bring on the founder and director of The Etiquette School of New York, Patricia Napier-Fitzpatrick. Patricia joins a lively discussion talking about not only etiquette, but New York City-specific-etiquette. Carefully navigating social media and smart phone manners, the group also acknowledges long-standing and all-important rules of properly sharing a meal. Patricia goes on to explain that etiquette is constantly evolving with the times, and is something that can be found at varying levels throughout the country and world. Tune in to catch the guys on their best behavior and to learn the answers to etiquette questions you were too afraid to ask! This program was brought to you by Fairway Market.

"Etiquette evolves with the times. Ten years ago when I started my business, we didn't have Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook was just starting, so people like me sat down and say what makes sense... and it's really treating people online the same way you would treat them in person." [11:19]

"If you're going to interview for a job, you want to put your best foot forward, literally, and can you do that in flip flops? No, you cant." [26:52]

"The world is more formal than the United States." [31:34]
